74th LCMS Kansas District Convention

June 9-10, 2022 | Capitol Plaza Hotel, Topeka



But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people of His own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.

1 Peter 2:9-10

Convention Updates


February 16, 2021:
The vast majority of LCMS congregations that participated in the vote to delay the Synod convention by a year voted in favor of the delay. As a result, the Synod convention will now be held in 2023, and our Kansas District convention will be held June 9-10, 2022. In the coming weeks, we’ll be working on fine-tuning the new convention timeline and updating documents. We’ll keep you posted with updates along the way. 

December 2020: On December 7, LCMS President Rev. Dr. Matthew Harrison sent a letter and FAQs to congregations and church workers regarding the possibility of moving the Synod Convention from 2022 to 2023. Congregations will be voting on this question from early January to February 15. In response to this turn of events, the Kansas District Board of Directors approved a resolution to suspend work on the district convention (including deadlines) during the voting period and to hold the convention on alternate dates, pending the outcome of the vote.

If the congregational vote PASSES, the Kansas District Convention will be held June 9-10, 2022.

If the vote FAILS, the Kansas District Convention will be held August 19-20, 2021. 

For more details, read President Panzer’s letter regarding the vote to delay the Synod Convention.
