Updates from LCMS day schools, universities and seminaries.
The Rev. Dr. Daniel L. Gard was awarded the Silver St. Martin of Tours medal by LCMS Ministry to the Armed Forces during the 2023 LCMS convention in Milwaukee.
The Synod in convention adopted eight wide-ranging resolutions related to pastoral ministry and formation.
The Rev. Dr. Lawrence Rast Jr. and the Rev. Dr. Thomas Egger commended residential seminary education to the Synod as the historical and faithful model for training servants for ministry to the church and world.
The resolutions clarify multi-parish representation at conventions, fix various glitches in the convention Handbook and clarify Synod Bylaws.
The resolutions from Floor Committee 2 address the Alliance Missionary Program, independent international congregations and the FORO model, among other things.
Set Apart to Serve has prepared webpages with information about how the church is meeting the need for church workers through its educational institutions.
The services were held on the two seminary campuses, on April 24–25 and May 18 in Fort Wayne, and on April 26 in St. Louis.
