Journal of Lutheran Mission

The Lutheran Church Missouri synod has commenced an online journal.   The Journal of Lutheran Mission.

The President of LCMS, Matthew Harris states
'It is our desire to follow the tradition of mission that  led to the founding of the Missouri Synod, to highlight  and expound good examples of Lutheran missiology and  to raise the height and breadth of discussion on mission  so that every member of the Missouri Synod prays for  the mission of the church, engages in it him/herself and  supports it each according to their vocation.'
