Congregations and Delegates

Welcome to the Lutheran community of northeast Indiana! If you're looking for a church home, we hope you'll find it at one of our 93 member congregations.

Listed below each church's information are the delegates who represent their congregations at the Annual Meeting of the Membership. Delegates elect the Board of Directors and approve The Lutheran Foundation’s Grant Guidelines. Each member congregation designates one delegate representative for each 100 confirmed members of the congregation, up to 31 delegates.
