Specialized spiritual care includes care for those who may be easily overlooked or seemingly forgotten.
The LCMS Boards for International and National Mission met in January and February in St. Louis.
The 2023 LCMS Specialized Pastoral Ministry conference will take place Feb. 28 through March 1 in St. Louis.
