Lutheran Mission Must Lead to Lutheran Churches

May 2016 Seminar

中文 The Evangelical Lutheran Mission Society for the Chinese (ELMSC) will hold its Third Annual Chinese Seminar on Holy Scripture and Luther’s Small Catechism May 10-13, 2016 on the campus of Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, Indiana. The seminar is designed especially for Mandarin-speaking North American Chinese Christians who would like to engage in a deeper study of Scripture and the Catechism using Mandarin Chinese.  The seminary location was chosen to also encourage participants toward possibly later studying to be a pastor or deaconess in the Lutheran Church.  Participants will study (in Mandarin Chinese) the basics of salvation, the Scriptural narrative of salvation, and the six chief parts of Luther’s Small Catechism.  The prayer offices of Matins and Compline will also be conducted each day (in Mandarin Chinese).  The presenters are all pastors of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod (LCMS) or one of her partner church bodies in other countries (Canada and Taiwan).  The registration fee is $150, which covers all costs for the seminar, including housing and food.  In addition, the society will cover up to $400 transportation costs for the first ten registrants (and possibly more, depending on available funds).  Registration is limited to 20 participants. Those interested in participating are asked to fill out a registration form and send it with the $150 registration fee to the address below no later than May 1. As the registration form indicates, registrants are required to have their pastor or coordinator of the Christian organization in which they participate write a brief recommendation paragraph for the participant on the registration form. Checks should be made payable to “ELMSC”. Please mail the registration form and $150 registration fee to: ELMSC, 100 E. Michigan St., Evansville, IN 47711    tentative schedule  Participants are asked to arrive at Concordia Theological Seminary on Monday evening, May 9th.
