Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada

ELCIC logoThe Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC) is the youngest denomination of our partner churches; although, its roots go back to the 16th century to the start of the Protestant Reformation.  It was formed in 1986 through the merger of the former Evangelical Lutheran Church of Canada and the Lutheran Church in America – Canada Section.  It is in full communion with the Anglican Church of Canada.  The National Bishop is The Rev. Susan Johnson.

Lutheran crestELCIC is divided into five synods.  The North Thompson Pastoral Charge is part of the Southern Interior Conference of the British Columbia Synod.  Rev. Dr. Gregory Mohr was elected as the Bishop of the British Columbia Synod on May 14, 2010 and ordained as Bishop on July 5, 2010, taking office on August 1, 2010.

Congregations and members of ELCIC serve the world’s poor and disenfranchised through Canadian Lutheran World Relief.  Its programmes respond to needs of community development, refugee resettlement, emergency relief, and humanitarian aid shipments.
