Send Me St. Louis understands what inspires Christian service and community engagement. We can provide your congregation/organization with the tools, resources, and knowledge to make your engagement vibrant, holistic, impactful, and faith-filled.
We're here to listen, to share ideas and best practices, and to help you live into the unique calling God has placed on your church or organization.
It's amazing how many gifts God has given to His church. After going through an asset mapping session with Send Me St. Louis, Salem Lutheran uncovered a wealth of resources we didn't even know we had! By identifying the talents, the physical and financial assets, and member expertise, we were able to identify what community need we were best suited to address. The asset mapping event strengthened relationships, increased our self-knowledge, and generated a great deal of enthusiasm. It was definitely a worthwhile experience!
