The Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod

The ultimate mission of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod (LC-MS) is to spread the Gospel to all people.  With 2.6 million members, it is one of the largest Lutheran synods in America - second only to the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA).  The LC-MS is known for its conservative stand on many issues, as we believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and is the only rule and norm for life.  We therefore do not throw away the Scriptures as irrelevant, as many present denominations have.


Concordia Seminary, Saint Louis

Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, is one of the two Seminaries of the LC-MS.  It happens to be the one I chose to attend.  If you think you may have a call to serve God as a pastor in His church, even if you're not sure, contact the Seminary.  They'll be happy to provide you with information and guidance as you attempt to determine whether or not you are called to be a Shepherd of God's Flock.  Campus visits are encouraged for all prospective Seminarians, whether or not you're certain you'll attend.


Beta Sigma Psi National Lutheran Fraternity
Beta Sigma Psi - Psi Chapter

Beta Sigma Psi is the one and only National Lutheran Fraternity.  It was founded in 1925 by a group led by the Rev. Stiegemeyer.  Its purpose is "to promote an organization of communicant Lutheran men who recognize that life rooted with Christ in God is the only true goal of human existence, and who therefore foster, encourage, and inspire activities and relationships which promote this end."  I am a founder of Psi Chapter at Concordia College - New York, a chapter which is thriving and showing a true Christian identity to a college which has struggled to be Christian. 


Joke A Day

A great place to hang out.  On the surface, it's just a joke site.  But click the "Forums" link, and you'll find a place where a lot of people with different opinions hang out and discuss the latest important (and very non-important) events.  I post under the name Ben (go figure).  Stop by!


That's it for now.  I'll post more as I have time, and as I remember them.  If you'd like a link to your site, lemme have it and I just may put it up here.  Especially if your site's dumber than mine - cause then it'll make mine look good!
