The ACELC exists "to give a united voice against errors that are officially adopted in convention, tolerated, and/or promoted in the LCMS.”

Isn't He That Lutheran Satire Guy?

Pastor Hans Fiene is our banquet speaker for the 2023 ACELC Conference. And yes, he is that Lutheran Satire guy.

If you have not checked out Lutheran Satire, you really must. Lutheran Satire is a project dedicated to teaching the Lutheran Faith through funny videos and other forms of media. He has made many videos that teach the truth in a humorous way and also make fun of false doctrine. Satire is a wonderful teaching tool, because it can get around people’s defenses in a way other forms of argument cannot. You can go to the Lutheran Satire website or find his YouTube page.

We hope that you will attend the 2023 ACELC Conference on July 11th-13th at Advent Lutheran Church in Zionsville, Indiana. You can register here. If you register by June 15th, it will only cost you $99.00! And that includes the banquet! And did I mention that that Lutheran Satire guy will be our banquet speaker?

Pastor Alexander Lange

This video serves as a great discussion prompter for congregations, gatherings of circuit pastors, districts—all who care about the spiritual well-being of our brothers and sisters in Christ within the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod. It spells out clearly the issues of doctrine and practice that continue to cause division within our synod and threaten our ability to walk together. It also shows our desire assist in the return to faithfulness within our synod.

We encourage you to watch this video, and use the study guides, as we together seek to deal with such issues, guided by the Holy Scriptures and the Lutheran Confessions. We pray that these resources, and others available through the ACELC website, will be a blessing to you and our synod. We welcome your feedback.
