Project: Education and Instruction for Pastors

  • Post category:Asia / Projects

Project ID: AM0001-62011

Support is needed to provide theological conferences for Lutheran pastors and church leaders in Asia. Gathering to meet face-to-face emphasizes common Lutheran teachings, while strengthening the faith of the attendees and building new relationships with other Lutherans across 12 different countries in Asia. Seven of the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) partner church bodies in Asia provide theological training through eight seminaries, yet most lack the resources to bring together pastors and church leaders regularly. Congregations often struggle simply to pay the pastor a salary, much less send him for continuing education. Theological education conferences respond to the real needs of partner church bodies in their struggle to provide adequate instruction and training for the present and future pastoral ministry of the church. These seminars might last only a single day in some cases, but the pastors take the resources and training they have received back to the people of God they serve. By supporting theological conferences in Asia, you help build, shore up and encourage church bodies all over Asia in Lutheran theology, and therefore the Christian faith.
