Finnish Lutheran Mission (FLM) is a missions and revival movement established in 1967. Today we have 64 missionaries in 15 countries. FLM is one of the mission agencies of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland. Due to its history and identity our Church has chosen to participate in God’s mission with and through seven mission agencies. The FLM is one of them. FLM works in Finland through its 17 regional organizations. The ministry includes Bible teaching, small groups, evangelism, youth and children’s ministry, ministry among immigrants, cooperation with local parishes and support of missions.
