Ghana

  •  Country Summary
  • The Evangelical Lutheran Church of Ghana (ELCG) was established in 1958 by Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod missionaries and became a sister/partner church of the LCMS in 1971. The ELCG is a member of the International Lutheran Council (ILC). The LCMS supports the work of the national church through seminary education and theological education by extension. Currently, the LCMS is helping to build a new seminary in Ghana so the students and professors can move out of their very cramped national headquarters into the new building, which has space for more students and a library.

    The LCMS began supporting agriculture projects in Ghana in 1984. This later grew into providing support for women’s literacy projects, agriculture classes, wells, ambulances, motorcycles for church workers, fire and flood response, substance abuse and addiction programming, goats for widows and orphans, and clinic/pharmacy support.

     

  •  Partner Churches
  • A partner church is a church body with whom the LCMS has full altar and pulpit fellowship. Many LCMS partner churches are also members of the International Lutheran council, a worldwide association of confessional Lutheran church bodies. Some LCMS partner churches came into existence through LCMS-supported mission efforts while others have historic roots that pre-date the LCMS or that are sourced in the mission efforts of other Lutheran church bodies.
