ALT Support


    1. PRAY – Please pray for this ministry’s leaders and those it serves.

    2. RECRUIT – If you know a young adult who might be interested in an ALT Year, please let them know about us and encourage them to apply. To find out more about what kind of young adult would be a great ALT participant, see our IDENTIFYING POTENTIAL ATLer GUIDE here.

    3. ADVOCATE – We are looking for advocates of all shapes, sizes, and ages to spread the word about this ministry in their local community and/or congregations. There are also many ways to use your gifts to “crowd-source” ministry tasks in order to move the ministry forward! Contact Josh about these opportunities. We have a variety of publicity resources for you in our “Printing Press.”

    4. SUPPORT ALT’S MISSION WITH A FINANCIAL GIFT – We also need financial donations for the national ministry and individual sites to continue to support the experience for young adults and grow this movement so it reaches more people! Checks can be made out to the Northwestern Ohio Synod. On the “Memo” line write “ALT Year”. Send donations to:
      ALT Donation
      Northwestern Ohio Synod
      621 Bright Road
      Findlay, OH 45840.
    If you would like to make a donation to a specific site, the existing scholarship fund, or to create a new scholarship fund, add that to the memo line. The Northwestern Ohio Synod of the ELCA is a 501 (c) 3 with its own EIN from the IRS. You will receive a letter as a record of your gift for tax purposes. If you have the means, please consider making a generous gift to forward this mission!

    5. SPONSOR A PARTICIPANT – We are looking for generous individuals, organizations, families, and congregations to sponsor $500 to $5000 of a young adult’s 9 month living expense (Room, board, materials, and living stipend). We want every young adult to be able to have this experience. We don’t want lack of funds to hold them back.

Thank You!
