What a way to wrap up our 150th Anniversary year! As we wait with anticipation to see all that our Lord has in store for St. Paul’s, we also consider the lega- cy which will be left for the gen- erations to come. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to hear from our synod president.
The Rev. Dr. Matthew C. Harri- son, the 13th president of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Syn- od (LCMS) since its founding in 1847, is the church’s chief ecclesiasti- cal officer, supervising the doctrine taught and practiced by its nearly 9,000 ordained ministers; representing the LCMS with its partner church bodies throughout the world; and overseeing all officers, exec- utives and agencies of the LCMS. He was first elected to the office of LCMS president in 2010 and was re-elected in 2013.
Prior to his election, Harrison served the LCMS as executive director of the church’s former World Relief and Human Care ministry. During that time, he oversaw the church’s multimillion-dollar responses to epic disasters, including Hurricane Katrina, the Asia tsunami and the Haiti earthquake; managed relationships with some 120 LCMS Recog- nized Service Organizations and other inter-Lutheran social ministry organizations; worked in consultation with LCMS partner/sister churches to build capacity during mercy outreach efforts; and man- aged the church’s global pro-life efforts.
Previously, Harrison served as a pastor at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Westgate, Iowa (1991-1995), and Zion Lutheran Church in Fort Wayne, Indiana (1995-2001). During his pastorate at Zion in Fort Wayne, his parish embarked on the St. Peter/Zion Project for Neigh- borhood Renewal, a now nationally recognized neighborhood revitali- zation effort. Owing to the success of this effort, Harrison later found- ed Lutheran Housing Support Corporation, a faith-based housing or- ganization that helps revitalize communities and renew neighborhoods across the country.
Harrison graduated with a bachelor’s degree in religious studies from Morningside College in Sioux City, Iowa, in 1984. Following his gradua- tion, he and his wife, Kathy, spent a year as missionaries in a remote Canadian Cree Indian village with the Lutheran Association of Mission- aries and Pilots. Harrison went on to earn a Master of Divinity in 1989 and a Master of Sacred Theology in 1991, both from Concordia Theo- logical Seminary, Fort Wayne. He has pursued additional graduate study at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis. In 2011, he received two hon- orary doctorates: a Doctor of Laws from Concordia University, Ann Ar- bor, MI and a Doctor of Divinity from Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne.
Harrison and his wife, Kathy, live in Ballwin, MO and are members of Village Lutheran Church in Ladue, MO, where Harrison also serves as assistant pastor. They have two sons. Harri- son is a prolific author and an avid banjo player.
