The deadline established by Bylaw for the submission of reports and overtures to the 2022 convention of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod is 20 weeks prior to the opening date of the convention, which is March 5, 2022. Resources for properly formatted submission of reports and overtures are available at lcms.org/convention/overtures.
Boards and commissions of the Synod are asked to submit their reports to the convention no later than Feb. 1, 2022, to facilitate their inclusion in the Convention Workbook. Because of printing timetable requirements, the same early deadline, Feb. 1, is also recommended for the submission of overtures. While all overtures submitted by the official March 5 deadline will be forwarded to floor committees of the convention, overtures that are submitted by the earlier date are more certain to be printed in the Convention Workbook.
Should the 2022 Synod convention be delayed by congregational vote, the nomination period will be held open until the date nine months prior to the rescheduled opening of the convention.
