See the AFLC Departments giving subsidy details below.
The AFLC General Funds 2019 has a subsidy request of $514,885 and as of August 2019 has received 54%.
General Funds expenses are primarily payroll and benefits, program and promotional, administrative, and repairs and maintenance of the headquarters and presidents home properties. The General Fund also oversees the Benefits Board, HIS Fund, and The Lutheran Ambassador. Further detail can be found in the annual conference report.
In 2018, the AFLC General Fund (Coordinating Committee) purchased the adjoining property (1.2 acres) to the AFLC in Plymouth, MN with a purchase price of $650,000. Gifts came in for that property and the remaining balance was paid in March 2019 with money from General Fund Investment Account.
In 2019 the COE has made an official name change to ‘AFLC Evangelism and Discipleship’ (AED).
Each year the AED hosts a special event for Pastors and their wives called Rekindle the Fire. The event traditionally takes place the Monday before Annual Conference. This year it will be again held on at the 2019 conference. We invite every pastor and his wife in the AFLC, at no cost to them, to come join us for a great banquet and time of encouragement. The event costs about $5,000. We are looking for financial supporters to come along side us. This event is and has been a non budgeted event. If you would like to help fund this valuable event, send a gift designated to RTF, or donate online.
For more information, please contact the Evangelism department, 763-545-5631.
Thank you for being a part of the answer to our financial situation. We would like to see more congregations and individuals join the COE team financially on a monthly basis. Evangelism web: https://www.aflc.org/evangelism/
Our greatest financial need is for funding to maintain increased staffing hours for full-time Administrative Assistant Diane Brubakken, enabling us to complete more projects in a timely manner. We have been greatly understaffed for many years due to a lack of funds. A generous gift in June 2016 allowed the Board of Publications to increase this position from 30 to 40 hours per week. We pray that God would provide the funds to continue this role as a full-time position. Gifts can be designated for “Staffing Needs.”

We are celebrating the work in many teenagers’ lives that attended FLY 2019! We are also grateful to each congregation and individual that is supporting AFLC Youth Ministries in 2019!
With your support, we have been able to add part-time staff of Jordan Langness (Training Coordinator) and Pastor Eric Christenson (Networking Coordinator). Jordan and Eric join Daniel Keinanen (FLY Convention Coordinator) as three local leaders serving their primary call to their congregation while contributing to the national youth ministries’ mission from a distance. Along with Chris Rasmussen (YM Administrative Coordinator), Liz McCarlson (Admin Assistant), and Pastor Jason Holt (National Youth Director) serving at AFLC Headquarters in Minneapolis, these six roles exist to serve our local congregations toward healthy and effective ministry with teenagers.
The AFLC Summer News includes current ministry pursuits for the FLY Convention, FLY Beyond, Youth Workers Weekends, the Apprenticeship Program, and coaching youth leaders. Thank you for your ministry partnership! www.aflc.org/youth
Thank you for interest in AFLC World Missions. We covet your prayer even more than your financial support. Would you commit to pray for World Missions?
Even though we need prayer, your financial support is also vital to work of spreading the Gospel around the world. The finances of AFLC World Missions are divided into three total separate areas. Two of those three have budget subsidies that have been approved by the AFLC Annual Conference. The three areas are described below.
AFLC World Missions Budget – Conference Approved
This budget funds all our ministries as well as oversight for those ministries. Those ministries include:
• Brazil - • India - • Mexico - • Uganda - • Ambassador Institute - • Journey Missions - • Oversight for these ministries
AFLC World Missions Personal Support (Missionaries) – Conference Approved
This budget funds our missionaries as they serve in many places around the world. Each missionary is expected to raise their own personal support to keep them on the field.
Approved Special Project List
These special projects are approved by the World Missions Committee, but have no budget subsidy from the AFLC Annual Conference. A list of the approve special projects can be found by clicking here.

Thank you for your interest in AFLC Home Missions. We covet your prayer even more than your financial support. Would you commit to pray for Home Missions? You can stay up to date on current needs by subscribing to our weekly newsletter, Knee Mail. Even though we need prayer, your financial support is also vital to work of planting churches. Financial gifts are the "supply line" that keep our troops engaged to fight the good fight. Whether it's a one-time gift to a specific project or a monthly ministry partnership, your donation makes a difference.

The AFLC Schools are grateful for the generous support from congregations and individuals. The subsidy gifts represent a percentage of the total annual income for each school – AFLBS and AFLTS. These donations supplement the tuition and fees we charge students and play a vital role in keeping these fees low and also in assisting the Schools in covering monthly operational expenses.
As we look towards 2019, the AFLC Schools are committed to continue using our financial resources to train servant leaders, increase enrollment at both Schools, and pursuing programmatic goals such as full accreditation. Also the New Gym Student Center has been approved and groundbreaking will be May 2019. To give see https://aflbs.edu/capital-campaign/.
The AFLC Schools are looking for specific donors to help fund ongoing projects such as the S400 student scholarship fund, new ministry vans and the Century Fund. Your prayer and financial support of the AFLC Schools is truly appreciated!
