President

Give thanks in all circumstances — through the risen Christ

Rev. Dr. Matthew Harrison, president of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod: “I thank God for you, for your partnership in the Gospel, your confession of our Lutheran doctrine, your prayers for the Synod and even your prayers for this sinner. I thank God for your ministry. I thank God for every congregation in your district.”

Message to the Church about demographic challenges we face

A portion of this “white paper” takes up the demographic challenge of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. I pray, that as we face challenges with the Word of God, we will continue to grow together in unity.

‘Joy:fully Lutheran’ – Rejoice. Pray. Give thanks. Christ has done it.

Even as our world changes, the Word of God remains the same. The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod proclaims this truth here and throughout the world in mission work, disaster response, universities, seminaries and especially in our congregations.
