Give to NWOA-OCWM Association Only Gift
Association Only Gifts support the Northwest Ohio Association, UCC by supporting local churches and authorized ministers in the association. Some ways we support local churches are in areas such as stewardship, Christian education, youth ministries, church revitalization, search processes for pastoral leadership and pastoral misconduct. Ways we support authorized ministers are special events, networking within regions, seeking new settings for ministry and pastoral care. We celebrate and strengthen our ministry together through ordinations, installations, association meetings, and joint mission projects.

Give to NWOA El Salvador
On January 26, 2012, the agreement to become global partners between the Northwest Ohio Association and the Synod of the Lutheran Church in El Salvador (Iglesia Luterana Salvadorena) was signed by our Northwest Ohio Association Minister, the Rev. Dan Busch and Bishop Medardo Gomez of the Lutheran synod. This agreement is one in which the churches of both agree that they will share their culture, their faith, their talents. They will pray for each other’s churches, listen with open hearts to each other regarding the joys and challenges of ministry and life, learn about each other’s countries, churches and life situations, develop lasting friendships through e-mail correspondence and visits to each other’s countries and churches, coordinate the sharing of resources and people between our two churches and celebrate the richness of our diverse traditions by engaging in worship which uses liturgies, music and resources of each other’s worship life.
