At Spirit of Joy! we believe that we are better together (see 1 Corinthians 12).
“Church” is more than just our community here in Alden Bridge. We are grateful for the congregations and organizations who partner with us in ministry for the good of the kingdom. These partnerships not only further our local mission, they help us to extend our ministry to the ends of the earth.
Texas-Louisiana Gulf Coast Synod of the ELCA
We are a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, and we partner with 112 congregations in the Gulf Coast region (from La Grange, Texas to New Orleans, Louisiana) to carry out our mission in this region.
We have partnered with Congregation Belen – a congregation of the Lutheran Church in Peru – since 2003. Located in Lima, our prayerful partnership with the people and leaders of Belen has strengthened both of our ministries and our work for the Kingdom of God.
Mission Investment Fund
More than a bank, the Mission Investment Fund uses the investments of individuals, congregations, and organizations to fund missions across the ELCA (including Spirit of Joy!). MIF also provides stewardship and capital campaign resources for ministries.
Formerly known as the Mission Endowment Fund, Live On generously supports Christian leaders, campus ministry, and new missions in our region.
LEAD: Living Everyday As Disciples
LEAD exists to grow Christian leaders who shape communities of faith. LEAD helps leaders and the congregations they serve to connect more deeply with their communities and mission.
Brenham Mission Society
Brenham Mission Society was born out of a passion of Lutheran congregations in the Brenham, Texas area: to work together to support and fund mission in their local community and beyond.
Worship Times is a web design and hosting company with a singular purpose: to provide attractive, useful websites for ministries (like this one!).
