Texas District (LCMS)


Texas District (LCMS)

The Texas District is one of the 35 districts of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod (LCMS), and comprises the state of Texas with the exception of El Paso County, which is in the Rocky Mountain District. The Texas District includes approximately 329 and missions (second to only the Michigan District), subdivided into 39 circuits, as well as 84 preschools, 45 elementary schools and 6 high schools. Baptized membership in district congregations is approximately 137,000.

The Texas District was formed in 1906 out of the Southern District, and at one time included congregations in southern New Mexico, but these were transferred to the Colorado District (since renamed the Rocky Mountain District) in 1941-42. District offices are located in Austin, Texas; the Rev. Kenneth Hennings has been the district president since September 2006 [http://www.lcms.org/pages/internal.asp?NavID=10176] . Delegates from each congregation meet in convention every three years to elect the district president, vice presidents, circuit counselors, a board of directors, and other officers; the last convention was held on June 22-25, 2006, and the next will be held in 2009.

Concordia University at Austin, part of the LCMS' Concordia University System, is located within the district.
