This summer will mark the 68th Convention of the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. The theme of the Convention is, “We Preach Christ Crucified,” based on 1 Corinthians 1:18–25.
Prior to the Convention itself, the Synod will hold an election for President of the Synod. Each congregation was allowed to appoint two electors who will cast ballots electronically between the dates of June 17 and July 11. There are five candidates: Matthew Harrison, Patrick Ferry, Richard Snow, Peter Lange, and Benjamin Ball.
In an effort to equip voters to make an informed decision, I contacted all five candidates and asked if they would do a brief interview with me that I could share with the District. It seems like a good idea to hear what they have in mind as a potential president. So far only two candidates agreed to do so—Patrick Ferry and Richard Snow. You can find the interviews I did with them here.
If the other candidates decide to interview with me, I will post those interviews as well. You can also find information about all five candidates in the official publications of the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.
Please pray for the upcoming Convention and the actions that will take place there.
