2023 Synod Convention
July 28, 2023 - August 3, 2023
The 68th Regular Convention of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod will be held at the Wisconsin Center in Milwaukee July 29-Aug. 3, 2023.
If planning on attending convention, your arrival day and time to Milwaukee will depend on your convention role, district instructions and desire to attend open hearings. Remember: All duly elected voting delegates, advisory delegates and advisory representatives “shall attend all sessions regularly until the close of the convention” (Bylaws 184.108.40.206 [c], 220.127.116.11).
The nomination period for Secretary of Synod and elected boards and commissions is already open and will be held open until Oct. 29, 2022, nine months prior to the opening of the convention. The timing of all other convention processes, including deadlines for registration, submission of reports and overtures, and nominations and elections, will be as determined by Synod Bylaws, relative to the convention’s opening date.
The theme is: “We Preach Christ Crucified,” based on 1 Cor. 1: 18-25.
Updates and information will be posted to lcms.org/convention.
