Tanzania Global Mission
The Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tanzania (ELCT), a member of the Lutheran World Federation, is made up of over 2.5 million people in 20 dioceses, approximately 6.5% of the population of Tanzania.
The Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tanganyika was officially formed in 1963 by the merger of seven churches, each of which had been established by Lutheran mission work from Europe or the U.S.A. The new ELCT had 400,000 baptized members. It joined the Lutheran World Federation in 1964. Today’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tanzania is one of the largest Lutheran churches in the world.
Christie Frick, daughter of Ken and Vivian Frick, has been a part of the SC Synod Mission Team to visit our Companion Synod in Tanzania for four different trips. Thanks to the money sent form St. Peter, Pastor Lutangilo Konga received the motorcycle. He is the pastor of four parishes and four mission areas in a very mountainous area.
