Christoph Eberhardt and his wife Mary donated the land on which
Michigan Lutheran Seminary still stands. Christoph and Mary Eberhardt
had the future needs of the Church in mind when they made their
permanent gift for Lutheran education. Many years later we still reap
the benefits of their foresight and generosity. The gospel of Jesus is
still being passed as our heritage to the next generation at MLS.
Eberhardts' act is an example of good stewardship that bears fruit well
into the future. The MLS Foundation is building an endowment for
Michigan Lutheran Seminary. The key to building such an endowment is
estate planning. To that end, the MLS Foundation has formed the
Eberhardt Society consisting of men and women who remember MLS or
the MLS Foundation in their estate plans, serving as an encouragement
to others to practice good stewardship in life and in death.
consider remembering MLS in your estate plans. Christian consultation
is available from the MLS Foundation or from a WELS Christian Giving
Counselor. This consultation does not replace the advice of a licensed
financial advisor. Please consult a financial advisor before making any
estate planning decisions. Contact the MLS Foundation toll-free at
