Evangelical Lutheran Church in America

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America began operations on January 1, 1988, with the union of three North American Lutheran church bodies: The American Lutheran Church, the Association of Evangelical Lutheran Churches and the Lutheran Church in America.

The three churches agreed to unite in 1982. The plan was approved by church conventions in 1986, and the ELCA constituting convention was held April 30-May 3, 1987. Contact the ELCA at 800-638-3522 or www.elca.org.

Region 3 Archives

The Archives of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America are the collective memory of the ELCA churchwide organization, as well as leaders and congregations of the church. The ELCA archives also works in partnership with synodical and regional archives where records of more local interest for synods and congregations may be found. Contact Paul Daniels, the Region 3 Archivist, at 651-641-3205 or pdaniels@luthersem.edu.
