The Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod established the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Ghana (ELCG) in 1958 and the ELCG became a partner church of the LCMS in 1971. The LCMS currently supports the work of the ELCG through seminary education and theological education by extension.

Our mission field worked with LCMS Concordia Seminary in St. Louis to create a curriculum and provide pastors in Africa with an online Master of Arts in Theology degree to meet this need and provide a solution within Africa.
