Protecting Your Ministry Workshop

October 20, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Over the past year, as legal changes and pressures have increased, many have been asking and waiting for help and guidance from The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod as our congregations, schools and ministries navigate tumultuous waters.  In response the LCMS has published a booklet Protecting Your Ministry.

Dr. Jon Mielke of the Indiana District and Mark Muehl of The Lutheran Schools Partnership in Ft Wayne are presenting three regional workshops for congregations and schools to update policies and bylaws to protect their ministry from sexual orientation gender idenity lawsuits.  A light supper will be provided.

  • September 27 in Columbus IN
  • October 4 in Valparaiso IN
  • October 20 in Fort Wayne IN

To adequately prepare for this workshop we request that you register your intent to attend at this workshop by contacting the Indiana District Office – Amy Mews

Bring along copies of any policies your school or congregation has such as enrollment, student handbook, building rental/usage, membership, wedding, funeral, etc.

To download a copy of the Protecting Your ministry booklet – go to here on the LCMS website.
