New Legal Resources Available

Published on January 3rd, 2017

A new “Legal Resources” page with links to some 31 documents is now available on the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod’s website.

Those links are grouped under five tabs labeled “Church Administration,” “Facility Usage,” “Schools and Education,” “Sexual Misconduct” and “Other Topics.”

The new webpage is offered to help LCMS churches and schools navigate those complex issues.

The 31 resources include Protecting Your Ministry (From Sexual Orientation Gender Identity Lawsuits)— the downloadable manual the Synod developed in collaboration with Alliance Defending Freedom.

Also included among the resources are policies; sample policies, agreements and letters; guidelines; published articles; and other information from the Synod, Concordia Publishing House, government agencies and others.

Questions about the site or suggestions for additional resources may be directed to the office of the Chief Administrative Officer at
