Who We Are
The Southeastern District (SED) of the Lutheran Church — Missouri Synod (LCMS) is a regional district of the LCMS working with congregations and schools in creative partnerships that will result in church transformation and Kingdom growth.
The two hundred eighteen congregations, forty five missions, and the eighty nine school ministries of the Southeastern District face many challenges as they seek to reach out to communities around them. Communities filled with people who don't know Jesus as Lord, who hunger for spiritual meaning, and who are looking for something in which to hope. The Mission of the Southeastern District leadership is to help congregations strengthen themselves and each other in order that each congregation might more effectively understand and pursue its mission.
The Mission of the Southeastern District
In grateful response to God's grace and empowered by the Holy Spirit, our Mission is to connect people with Jesus Christ.
Vision Statement (fall 2009)
Creative partnerships resulting in congregtional renewal and Kingdom growth.
Where congregations, schools, and ministries are disciple-making communities of teaching, fellowship, breaking of bread, and prayer and God is growing his Kingdom daily as His people boldly proclaim the love of Jesus Christ in word and deed.
