“…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 Click here for more information about Mission Training Center

MTC has been listening closely as the synodical convention addressed the LLD issue as put forward by the floor committee based on the Task Force’s report. The decision was not what MTC hoped, but that does not mean training and developing leaders for ministry and mission in the church ceases. Rather, it will increase as the need continues to emerge and new ministries are being creatively and innovatively imagined in God’s mission. The Board of Directors for the NOW District, as well as other boards in many districts, will be meeting to discuss appropriate responses. Out of those meetings and collaborative partnerships among the districts will come the beginning, if not an even more robust, response to the convention and its decision related to LLDs.
