The Rev. Peter Burfeind and the Rev. Adam DeGroot were blessed and sent out as the first two “Mission Field: USA” national missionaries during a service on Jan. 12, 2016, at the LCMS International Center in St. Louis, Mo.
The LCMS is actively partnering with districts, congregations and Recognized Service Organizations to place missionaries like the Rev. Adam DeGroot in Philadelphia.
The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod’s Office of National Mission is investing significant energy and effort in working with our districts to assist in their church planting efforts.
