  • About the Ambassador Program


    LSS Ambassadors serve in one year renewable terms and are appointed by the senior pastor of their church. The ambassador will fulfill their commitment according to how they see this ministry in the context of their community. 

    Each quarter, ambassadors take part in a conference call led by LSS CEO Jodi Harpstead. The calls keep LSS and ambassador churches connected and caught up on current initiatives and issues.
