Gospel Outreach is responsible for accepting and distributing college scholarships, Short Term Mission Trip scholarships and Mission Grant Projects. Our goal is to support missions that are local, national and foreign. We collect coins and donations through Mite Boxes to help pay for our mission grant goals.

65% of all mites collected go to LWML-NED Mission Grants
25% of all mites go to LWML (national) Mission Grants
10% of all mites go to LWML-NED administration costs
