On Nov. 16, 2019, Lutheran Church Extension Fund honored Diana Raasch with the District Award for outstanding efforts in districts with $35 to $70 million in assets during LCEF’s Fall Leadership Conference.
“Logging many miles throughout the southern half of Wisconsin,” said Kurt Fuhr, LCEF regional vice president – Central, “Diana is a constant and dependable resource to the South Wisconsin District and the congregations, schools and other ministries she serves there.”
The South Wisconsin District program saw tremendous outpouring of blessing this past year with more than $5.6 million of new lending activity while adding 5 new ministry support agreements.
Fuhr added that “the ministry of church extension and the ministries of the South Wisconsin District are blessed to have [Diana]. We are confident that we will have the privilege of witnessing many more examples of God's provision through your work for many years to come.”
Each year, LCEF recognizes three district award programs for their work during the last year. LCEF also recognized Carole, district vice president – Iowa East District, for outstanding efforts in districts with less than $35 million in assets, as well as Casey Carlson, district vice president – Missouri District, representing districts with assets over $70 million.
