The Lutheran Council in Canada continues to provide a vehicle for Lutheran Church–Canada and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada to function as a single body to facilitate their participation in three national ministry areas: Federal Corrections, Military Chaplaincy and Scouting.
The board structure was changed at the last Annual General Meeting (AGM) to provide for a smaller body of local participants, making it possible to meet more often at less expense.
Financial reserves continue to provide operating funds as the body looks toward eventual discontinuation. In the meantime, plans are being discussed for a website that will direct inquirers to either of the two churches’ online directories, thereby replacing the printed book of many years history.
