The English District is one of two nongeographic districts of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. Its inception can be traced to colonial times. When the district was formally organized in 1888, there were few parishes in the Missouri Synod which used English. Thus English is a historic name. Today there are 161 congregations, 6 new mission starts, 5 campus ministries, 1 human care ministry, and 67 schools in the Canadian province of Ontario and in eighteen states, crossing 4 time zones, and employing 23 different languages for worship of the Lord and Bible study. Membership currently consists of approximately 56,000 baptized members and 44,000 communicant members. The English District’s vision is to ignite Christ’s Church in Mission by serving communities, connecting with the unchurched and dechurched, growing in faith and numbers, and reproducing through the planting of new churches.
And he said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the
beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the
water of life without payment.
Revelation 21:6 ESV
