The next regional gathering of ‘Making Disciples for Life’ will take place April 17–18 at Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne.
The BOD also heard updates on international mission, church-worker recruitment and the Synod’s ‘Making Disciples for Life’ initiative.
The Initial Gathering — the first of many such gatherings to come in other parts of the country — was held Jan. 9–11 at the LCMS International Center in St. Louis
The Nov. 18–21 meeting was held concurrently with meetings of the LCMS Board of Directors, Concordia University System and a gathering of business and office managers from across the Synod.
Among other business, the Board heard a report from the Synod president, elected a new BOD member, and thanked retiring CFO Jerry Wulf for his service.
Among other business, the boards discussed the triennial mission emphasis established at the convention, “Making Disciples for Life.”
The event, which will take place Jan. 9–11 at The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod International Center in St. Louis, is open to all LCMS laypeople, pastors and church workers.
The resolutions addressed church planting, shared congregational ministry, campus ministry and the legacy of Rosa J. Young.
We’re in this together! The men and women in the LCMS Office of National Mission have been listening and learning so as to better equip congregations and districts in making lifelong disciples for Christ.
The board also heard a presentation on the Synod’s new national mission emphasis, ‘Making Disciples For Life.’
The new initiative will assist God’s people with resources and training as they witness to Christ and His eternal gifts.
