The Triennial Convention helps us carry out our role as the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod in New Jersey. We will elect officers according to LCMS by-laws , and members of the CHEF, Christian Heritage Endowment Fund, according to New Jersey District by-laws. The Convention allows delegates to vote on overtures that can become resolutions which are sent to the LCMS Convention the following year. It is also time to review mission and ministry initiatives within the New Jersey District.
The Gathering of Pastoral and Lay delegates will also be gathering in worship and for fellowship with other church leaders from neighboring congregations.
Please make every effort to place the election of lay delegates and alternate delegates on your Fall or early Winter Voters Meeting agenda, as well as the nomination of officers.
NOMINATIONS AND DELEGATE CREDENTIALS WILL BE DUE AT THE DISTRICT OFFICE February 5, 2015.
REPORTS AND OVERTURES WILL BE DUE March 12, 2015.
A Special invitation to the Convention is extended to all Commissioned Ministers and Advisory Ordained Ministers.
