The Changing Legal Landscape for LCMS Schools

Published on June 3rd, 2016

As the legal landscape continues to change for faith-based institutions, LCMS school officials are wondering how they’ll faithfully navigate the future. Recent legal issues with LCMS and other Christian schools have focused on accepting state and federal dollars and the implications of doing so. Please join us for Faith & Family, June 7 and 8 at 10 a.m. Central on Worldwide KFUO, as we take up the key issues facing our Lutheran schools today with guest Mr. Gregory S. Baylor from the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF).

Since joining ADF in 2009, he has worked diligently to protect the First Amendment freedoms of students, faculty and staff at public colleges and universities. As director of ADF’s Religious Schools Team, Baylor litigates cases to protect the rights of Christian educational institutions across the nation. He also serves as religious liberty consultant to the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities.

Learn more about what’s at stake on Worldwide (, June 7 and 8.
