Multiethnic Symposium – January 24-25, 2017

multiethnic symposiumConcordia Seminary’s annual Multiethnic Symposium brings together Lutherans of various ethnicities from across the country for two days of workshops, discussions and worship. The symposium explores how the church should engage in ethnic ministry and what it means — and what it will take — to become a truly multiethnic church.

In celebration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, the 2017 Multiethnic Symposium will examine the various ways in which the Reformation message has crossed many borders. Participants will examine ways to turn socio-linguistic, institutional and theological barriers into stepping stones to bring the pure Gospel to people across the world.

Keynote: Dr. Enoch Wan, research professor of intercultural studies and director of the Intercultural Studies Program at Western Seminary in Portland, Ore. Wan will lead participants in a historical review of the paradigm shift of Martin Luther that occurred 500 years ago and offer a proposal for the Lutheran church bodies in North America in the 21st century based on the global trends.

Plenary and sectional speakers from throughout The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod will share their mission perspectives on how the Reformation has crossed many borders in their respective fields of ministry.
