We are a Mission Endowment Fund administered and supervised by the Bethany Lutheran Church Endowment Fund Board of Trustees, Crystal Lake, Illinois. We began our journey by supporting new and enhancing ministries of our church beyond the operation budget of our congregation. We have now expanded our outreach mission to organizations outside of the church.
