The LCMS Board for International Mission moves to help fill the 2013 Synod convention mandate to double the number of career missionaries by 2016.
The district presidents also meet with seminary faculty and hear reports from LCMS President Rev. Dr. Matthew Harrison and LCMS Secretary Rev. Dr. Raymond Hartwig.
The LCMS Council of Presidents divides into groups to work through such issues each time it meets, until April 2015.
