2023 Annual Chinese Seminar
The Evangelical Lutheran Mission Society for the Chinese (ELMSC) will hold its Eighth Annual Chinese Seminar on Holy Scripture and Luther’s Small Catechism June 22-26, 2023 on the campus of Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, Indiana (CTS-FW).
The seminar is designed especially for Mandarin-speaking North American Chinese Christians who would like to engage in a deeper study of Scripture and the Catechism using Mandarin Chinese.
The seminary location was chosen also to encourage participants toward possibly
later studying to be a pastor or deaconess in the Lutheran Church. Participants will study (in Mandarin Chinese) Holy Scripture (this year the book of Leviticus) and Luther’s Small Catechism (this year focusing on Daily Prayers and the Table of Duties). The prayer offices of Matins and Compline will also be conducted each day (in Mandarin Chinese).
On Sunday morning, attendees will attend Divine Service at Redeemer Lutheran Church, Ft. Wayne. The presenters for the seminar are all pastors of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod (LCMS). Registration is limited to 20 participants.
