RSO Update (July-August 2017)

The quarterly “RSO Update” includes any new LCMS Recognized Service Organizations (RSOs), those whose RSO status has been renewed, those that have withdrawn their applications for RSO status, those whose RSO status has been removed, and those whose status is “dissolved” because the organization no longer exists.

This month’s update includes RSO listings from mid-March through mid-June. The “RSO Update” will not appear in Reporter when there have been no new RSOs or none whose status has changed since the previous listing.

“RSO Update” information is provided by the LCMS Office of Rosters and Statistics and verified by the LCMS Office of National Mission — RSO Ministry.
