Companion Synod Partnership

2023 marks the centennial anniversary of the Sudan Mission- the arrival of the first missionaries to the area that is now the Central African Republic and Cameroon. A centennial celebration is planned as part of this commemoration and on-going partnership. 

Members and friends of the Eastern North Dakota Synod are invited to participate in the Centennial Celebration planned for July 7-9 in Minneapolis. A visit from CAR church leaders to Eastern North Dakota was planned as part of the celebration but has been postponed due to travel challenges.

Sudan Mission Celebration 

sudan mission centennial celebration

The Sudan Mission Centennial will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the arrival of Lutheran missionaries in the Sudan Region, which includes Cameroon and the Central African Republic. We will also celebrate the current work being done in the region and look forward to the possibilities for future ministry. The conference will feature discussions with the President of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in the Central African Republic and the Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Cameroon, as well as former missionaries to the region and other special guests. We hope members of the Eastern North Dakota Synod will join this event to continue our work and partnership with the Lutheran Church of the CAR!
