Combining resources for greater impact

National Lutheran’s mission is deeply rooted in our faith and ministry spanning more than 130 years serving older adults in partnership with our local synods, churches and community partners. It is through such partnerships that our organization can truly fulfill its mission and reach out to the greater community.

We partner with The Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA) and the local synods: Delaware-Maryland, Virginia, and Metropolitan D.C. From these synods, we draw leadership on our Board of Trustees, as well as financial support for our ministries.

Temple Talks

We offer support to the congregations within the synods on a variety of older adult care topics, sharing the expertise gained through more than 133 years of experience. Through temple talks, we are able to provide updates on our shared ministry during the service, and then speak one-on-one after the service with congregation members who have personal questions on adult care topics. If your congregation is interested in hosting our mission advancement director or local chaplain for a temple talk, please contact
