Get involved with us

There are many ways you can be a part of this ministry.

  • Become an advocate for “creating space for transformational change through listening, learning, and relationship building among diverse peoples and communities.” We provide many resources and workshop to help you.

  • Invite one of our team members to speak at your congregation. This could be at an adult or youth forum, or as a preacher on Sunday morning.

  • Tell local school and civic leaders about our workshops and programs. For example, several schools and government organizations have participated in the Blanket Exercise.

  • Support us financially! 


We receive some support from the Northeastern Minnesota Synod. Congregations, organizations, and individuals support the work of Together Here Ministries with contributions and grants. Any amount is welcome, and we appreciate your additional contribution to cover the cost of processing an electronic transaction. You may also send a check made out to “Northeastern Minnesota Synod” with “Together Here” in the memo line. Our mailing address is at the bottom of this web page. If you represent a congregation or other organization, please contact us directly at:
