What is the CTCR?

The Lord be with you

For anyone who comes to this blog often, they will note that I have posted numerous reviews of CTCR reports. CTCR stands for the Commission on Theology and Church Relations of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod (LC-MS). Readers may be wondering about this commission, when was it formed, what are its duties, who is on it, how does the commission determine topics to issue reports or opinions about and how much "authority" the commission has.

The link below will take you to a four page document that answers such questions. It was posted in 2013 and I expect it will be updated following the upcoming Synod Convention listing the four members such a convention is charged with electing. Because it is a couple of years old, some of the pending projects listed have actually been accomplished.


Blessings in Christ,
Pastor John Rickert
