Exciting changes have been made to Lutheran Church Extension Fund’s (LCEF) ConnectPLUS and PartnerPLUS investments. LCEF wouldn’t be able to support Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) ministries without the faithful support of our investors. This strong and stable base means the important role LCEF plays in supporting the LCMS will continue long into the future.
* The State of Washington has adopted a regulatory position that currently prohibits residents of Washington State from opening a new investment unless they are already an LCEF investor. Rates as of Oct. 2019.
ConnectPLUS is a fixed-rate term note for new LCEF investors* who wish to invest in the future of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod and its Christ-centered ministries.

He is a firm believer in the Scriptural truth that “whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully” (2 Corinthians 9:6).

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.

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.
