Upcoming Event: LWML Rally, Saint Pauls Lutheran Church, Osseo, Minnesota, April 20 [CANCELLED]

Please note this event has been cancelled.

The Saint Timothy Society is grateful to the LWML (Lutheran Women's Missionary League) for the opportunity to speak at their upcoming Rally at Saint Pauls Lutheran Church, Osseo, Minnesota, and for their "Gifts from the Heart" collection for the Society's ongoing work at the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Kenya's seminary in Matongo, Africa.

The Saint Timothy Society, a Recognized Service Organization of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod, has been active in supporting and fund raising for seminary education overseas since it began as a charitable corporation with 501(c)3 status in 2007. Our major and ongoing project has been to support Rev. Thomas Aadland, who has been called as a missionary by the Office of International Missions of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod to teach and help the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Kenya in pastoral education at the Matongo Lutheran Theological College, where he also serves as Dean of Chapel. The LWML has generously offered to include this work in their "Gifts from the Heart" collection, which will go to support Rev. Aadland's salary, travel, books, and related expenses.

The Society also supports other projects and initiatives such as bringing foreign students from overseas to study at Lutheran seminaries in North America, and we encourage potential supporters and donors to contact us with their suggestions and ideas. We can work with donors in writing grant proposals for designated gifts for specific projects, which we believe gives donors, supporters and recipients a greater degree of accountability and clarity.

Rev. Gordon Bynum, our Chaplain, will be speaking to the LWML rally about the work of the Society and Lutheran Seminary Education in the larger context of the Lutheran understanding of the two kingdoms.
