A $52,000 grant for the Minnesota South (MNS) District of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) was announced by the Kaleidoscope Fund, a granting program established by Lutheran Church Extension Fund (LCEF).

Having identified a need for emergent leadership training and continued education, the district plans to offer need-based scholarships with the grant funds. These scholarships will allow church leaders to attend intensive leadership training programs to help equip them to better serve God.
