“…as you go, wherever you go, make disciples (apprentices), baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, and teaching them everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you until the end of the age.”
Matt. 28: 19-20

Mission Training Center (MTC), from the beginning, has been interested and involved in the outcome of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod’s (LCMS) response in convention to Resolution 13-02A – “To Regularize the Status of Licensed Lay Deacons (LLDs) Involved in Word and Sacrament Ministry.” In July they voted that LLDs would no longer be allowed to publicly fill some functions of the ministry, namely preaching and distributing the sacraments (baptism and the Lord’s Supper). MTC is deeply saddened by this move. However, MTC thought it would be important to pass on to you a response drafted by the LCMS’s Northwest District Board of Directors through its President post LCMS Convention. You can find that response at this link: http://nowlcms.org/message.
