Sponsor a Tanzanian Scholar

Gloria Dei has officially signed papers and begun an accompaniment partnership with with the Iringa Diocese of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tanzania (ELCT) this year. Our global missions team is excited about learning from and sharing with our siblings in Kalingapasi.

In addition to regular communication via Zoom and Whatsapp with our partner congregation, we have been invited to sponsor students in secondary school (high school). These scholars rely on donations to provide books, lodging, meals, uniforms, and all the materials they need to attend school and succeed.

During the month of October, our global missions team would enjoy speaking with you further to explain the program and make sure your household has the information it needs to consider this four-year commitment to a scholar. Please view the video below by team member Laura Willemsen, who has a life-long connection to ministry and education in Tanzania.

Scholarships cost $450 per year, which includes a 12.5% admin fee and donations are due no later than November 1, 2021. Please make checks payable to Gloria Dei Lutheran with “Tanzania Scholarships” in the memo line.

Also, please visit our shared ministry fair table between and after services Sunday, October 17, or email youth@gloriadeistpaul.org
