Opportunities and challenges for holistic mission
Member churches in the Lutheran communion in Asia move towards a holistic understanding of Lutheran identity in a religious and culturally diverse society while responding to the needs of community amid an imbalanced socioeconomic climate.
The Lutheran communion in Asia is strengthened in its collaborative holistic mission efforts by learning from each other. The common search for and development of an Asian Lutheran identity has forged strong ties between member churches, which has further developed the communion into a close-knit fellowship.
Minority church context
There are minority churches across the region in tribal settings, mainly in India among the Dalits and Adivasi, and in the Mekong region of Myanmar.
Networks & Partnerships
Networks facilitate mutual accompaniment, especially for smaller churches.
Asia Church Leadership Conference, Network of Lutheran Theological Institutes of Asia, Mekong Mission Forum (MMF), Network of West Asia Lutheran Churches
