Michigan District (LCMS)

Michigan District (LCMS)

The Michigan District is one of the 35 districts of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod (LCMS), and comprises the U.S. state of Michigan with the exception of the western half of the Upper Peninsula, which is in the North Wisconsin District. In addition, eighteen Michigan are in the non-geographic English District. The Michigan District includes approximately 372 congregations and missions, subdivided into 44 circuits, as well as 79 preschools, 89 elementary schools and 9 high schools. Baptized membership in district congregations is approximately 225,000. It is by far the largest of the Synod's districts, exceeding the size of the next largest districts by over 30 congregations (Texas District) and 80,000 members (Northern Illinois District). The average congregation size of 604 members places the Michigan District second among the 35 districts, only slightly behind the Northern Illinois District (607).

The Michigan District is the renamed remnant of what was originally called the Northern District, one of the Synod's four original districts formed in 1854. The Wisconsin and Minnesota portions of the district were separated in 1875, creating the Northwestern District. From 1875 to 1879, Ontario was included in the Northern District, but it was split off to form the Canada District. The Northern District was renamed the Michigan District in 1881. District offices are located in Ann Arbor, Michigan; the Rev. Dr. C. William Hoesman has been the district president since 1997, and was reelected to a fourth term in 2006 [http://www.lcms.org/pages/internal.asp?NavID=10293] . 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 on June 25-28, 2006, and the next will be held in 2009.

Concordia University, Ann Arbor, part of the LCMS' Concordia University System, is located within the district.
