2018 Power of Each One

Presented by North American Savings Bank

Saturday, November 3rd, 2018

Overland Park Convention Center

For the last 47 years, Metro Lutheran Ministry has helped low-income and homeless people navigate a path towards hope, opportunity, and peace. 

The Power of Each One gala is MLM's largest fundraiser of the year, providing critical funds to help support programs such as the MLM food pantries, permanent supportive housing, minor home repair, employment support services, and the MLM Christmas Store.

Please join us for an evening of inspiration and fun as we wish a fond farewell to retiring Executive Director Jim Glynn and welcome MLM's new leadership.


Power of Each One would not be possible without the generous support of MLM's gala sponsors.  These individual and corporate sponsors help ensure that 100% of the funds raised at the Power of Each One go directly to support MLM's ministry.  

Reserve a Table...or Seat!

Because of the generous support of our sponsors, there is no cost to attend 2018 The Power of Each One! During the evening, guests will be invited to make a contribution to support the life-changing work of MLM.  Please bring your best gift!  

Being a table host is one of the most impactful ways you can influence the success of MLM's fundraising efforts. By inviting your friends and loved ones, you help share the MLM story with others who care about the poor and homeless within our community. 

Want to host your own table of 10 or reserve individual seats?
