Mission Training Center (MTC) will be leading a presentation at Best Practices for Ministry Conference, February 18-20, 2016, at Christ Church Lutheran, Phoenix, AZ. The session is entitled: Licensed Lay Deacons (LLD) – A Responsible Model for Releasing Them into W/S Ministry "Congregations struggle to find and fund full-time ordained pastors for Word and Sacrament ministry. One option is to use Licensed Lay Deacons. Is it Scriptural? What has the LCMS said about its use? What does that mean today? How is it done? What training is required?" This is a timely subject. The 2016 LCMS Synodical Convention will be voting this summer on whether or not to allow LLDs to continue to serve in ministry. Join us if you plan to attend the conference.
Registration is now open for Winter Online Classes! February and March classes: MTC008 Leading & Creating Christ Centered Lutheran Worship (February 4) MTC016 Spiritual Leadership Formation (March 1) MTC005 Interpreting Scripture (March 3)
