O: 610.867.7566, ext. 17 

The Larger Life Foundation of the Moravian Church, Northern Province (LLF) is a special and unique ministry. Founded in 1920 by a small group of dedicated Moravians, their goal was to establish an endowment fund of $750,000 with the income to be shared with Synod-designated Moravian agencies.They envisioned the positive impact that regular income from invested funds could have on the life and mission of the church — something that would give Larger Life to the church now and in the future. A firm foundation for the LLF Endowment was laid through gifts and bequests that spanned decades. The $750,000 goal was met and surpassed.

Today, LLF assets have grown to over $10,000,000, and its mission is realized through financial assistance, loans, and grants to numerous ministries and churches in the Moravian Church, Northern Province.

  • With continued financial support and generous contributions, the Larger Life Foundation will grow and serve the mission of the Moravian Church in the 21st century and beyond.
