Lutheran Church of South Sudan

Lutheran Church of South Sudan is an emerging church in an emerging nation. The mission statement of LCSS is “Proclaiming Hope to a Broken World.”  South Sudan gained its independent from Sudan on July 9, 2011 after deadly and bloody civil war that claimed 2.5 million lives. The war ended in 2005 and the nation became independent in 2011.  This infant nation has engaged in a daunting task of rebuild the country.  The Lutheran Church of South Sudan is privileged to be one of the churches to bring evangelical witness to the new nation.  Our member congregations are still worshiping under the trees, in open spaces/fences, in tents/huts and in schools. The LCSS has only 12 theologically trained pastors, so the church set goals to raise, prepare and equip more leaders.  Other ministries include advancing God’s Kingdom by planting and building new churches across South Sudan, and strengthening stewardship education.  The church sets priorities on vibrant evangelism based on great commission:  “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I command you” (Mathew 28:18-20a).

Other specific objectives include building 5 churches each year, planting 130 new churches in three years, and training 10 more pastors and 5 music leaders in the next four years.
