What the Southern District Does

Synod-District-Congregations Partnership

The Southern District and its circuits and congregations are members of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. Synod simply means “on the road together.”

In short, a synod is to be a living member of the body of Christ, and together with every other living member of that most sacred body in the whole world, it must do whatever it possibly can to spread Christ’s kingdom and wherever possible, to win for Christ and to lead into His sheepfold all those whom Christ has bought with His precious blood, and ultimately to lead them in the salvation of everlasting life.” C.F.W. Walther, “Duties of an Evangelical Lutheran Synod.”

Current “on the road together” activities are reported in the district publications above. Click on the links below to see and/or download and print the support and services the district provides.
