In the most recent edition of Synod’s Life Together Digest, the Rev. Dr. Matthew C. Harrison, president of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, reflects on the work of the 1,885 LCMS schools across the country and their 21,222 teachers to bring faithful instruction to over 200,000 students over the course of the past school year, even amid the ongoing challenges of hybrid learning and other pandemic-related measures.
“Never has providing a rich, Christ-centered education been so very important,” says Harrison. “Political and social ideologies contrary to God’s Word permeate many other schools, but our Lutheran schools provide a Christ-centered alternative, where Christ and His gift of forgiveness, life and salvation are taught and lived out.”
