LCEF’s Laborers For Christ program provides the hands and hearts you need to accomplish God’s plan for your ministry. Members of Laborers For Christ assist with ministry projects—remodeling existing facilities, building new ones or updating older structures for optimal efficiency.
Since 1980, Laborers For Christ has helped complete more than 860 of these projects. Members are dedicated Christians who enjoy witnessing their faith, serving others, traveling and meeting new people.
For more information about Laborers For Christ, please call LCEF’s Information Representatives at 800-843-5233 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Laborers For Christ members bring experience and expert knowledge in construction, typically cutting building costs by 10% to 30%. Laborers For Christ can also update existing facilities, helping you acquire tax credits, money savings and energy efficiency.
The financial benefits, though, are secondary to the uplifting presence Laborers For Christ brings to your ministry. Members become part of your ministry, attending worship services and bible studies. They will help you multiply your volunteer base—not only for the construction project but for your overall ministry.
You can join Laborers For Christ to start helping LCEF with construction projects at LCMS ministries. When you become an Active Laborer, you’ll be able to empower ministry by working to help congregations, schools and organizations carry out their mission of sharing the Gospel.
Please complete the Laborers For Christ Application (PDF) or contact LCEF to become an Active Laborer or to express interest in an upcoming project.

There are several projects in development for 2017. Please check back regularly for project sign up.
I am willing to serve as a Laborer For Christ for the following:
As a consultant for Capital Funding Services (CFS), Randy enjoys assisting the Lord’s people in experiencing the joys of generosity. He is a firm believer in the Scriptural truth that “whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully” (2 Corinthians 9:6). He says, “Stewardship is simply reflecting the image of our generous God, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing.” His leadership has encouraged his congregation to provide generous support for ministries locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.
Randy has been a parish pastor for 35 years. For the past 28 years, he has been serving First Immanuel Lutheran Church, Cedarburg, Wisconsin. Leading a large congregation has enabled him to experience six capital campaigns, allowing him to provide great insights to pastors in capital campaigns and stewardship.
Randy has served Concordia University Wisconsin as an adjunct professor of theology for 26 years. In 2010, the university awarded him the honor of “Distinguished Alumnus.” He has also served 12 years on the South Wisconsin District Board of Directors, including six years as Board Chair and First Vice President of the district. He conducts seminars on generosity and provides encounters for parish pastors to discuss cultural issues and the church’s impact.
Randy resides in Cedarburg, Wisconsin, with his wife, Diana, who is the South Wisconsin District’s Lutheran Church Extension Fund’s District Vice President. They have two married daughters and three granddaughters. Randy’s mission statement is to serve God by serving others.
