ST. LOUIS, October 17, 2013—Got questions about the LCMS? Tweet them to the Rev. Dr. Matthew C. Harrison, president of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS), who will hold his first Twitter chat from 11 a.m. to noon CT Wednesday, Oct. 23.
Harrison will share his priorities for the next triennium and discuss other issues facing the church during the live conversation. Pastors and other church workers, lay members and other interested parties are invited to participate in the discussion.
“Technology allows the leadership to hear from the people of the church,” Harrison said. “That’s a very good thing.”
Harrison began serving his second term as LCMS president in September.
