Mid-South District (LCMS)

The Mid-South District is one of the 35 districts of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod (LCMS), and encompasses the states of Arkansas and Tennessee, as well as the southwestern edge of Kentucky; the rest of Kentucky is divided between the Indiana District and the Ohio District. The Mid-South District includes approximately 130 congregations and mission stations, subdivided into 12 circuits, as well as 34 preschools, 15 elementary schools and 2 high schools. Baptized membership in district congregations is over 30,000.

The Mid-South District was formed in 1966 when the Western District was divided, also creating the Missouri District. District offices are located in Cordova, Tennessee; the Rev. Kenneth Lampe has been the district president since 2003, and was reelected in 2006 [1]. Delegates from each congregation meet in convention every three years to elect the district president, vice presidents, circuit counselors, a board of directors, and other officers; the last convention was held in 2009, and the next will be held in 2012.
