Group Purchase Agreements

The Michigan District provides these links for vendors and organizations serving congregations and ministries in Michigan. This information is shared as the District often receives requests from congregations looking for quotations on these services or because the District feels there might be cost savings opportunities by congregations. Each congregation or ministry is encouraged to perform their own due diligence before contracting with any of these providers.

The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod maintains a Group Purchasing Agreement for many products and services. Please visit for complete details.

Natural Gas Choice Program


Several LCMS schools participate in the Michigan Association of Non-public Schools (MANS) natural gas program. Approximately 120 Lutheran, Catholic, and Christian schools currently use their joint buying power through MANS to receive some of the best prices for natural gas available in Michigan. Schools average a 15 percent savings or more. Everyone wants to lower utility bills and now the MANS program has been opened to all LCMS buildings whether or not there is a school affiliation. MANS has supply arrangements with 5 different suppliers and can offer an alternative to what your gas utility currently charges including DTE/Michcon, Consumers Energy, Michigan Gas Utilities, and SEMCO Energy. Nothing changes except the price. Your natural gas service will still be by your utility but you will be charged a special price for the gas commodity portion of your bill.

We recommend you take a look to see if it is right for your school and/or congregation. It may save you several thousand dollars before the heating season is over. There is no obligation to obtain an estimate. You can obtain one by simply faxing or emailing a copy of a recent bill to Don Johns at (517) 268-1278 or or contact Don at (517) 694-2510
