Whether your partnership is active or in need of a new start, it’s time for all of us to reconnect with our friends in the Central Diocese of Tanzania! We invite you to join us for the Tanzania Summit on Sunday, October 8, 3-6 pm, at Zumbro Lutheran Church in Rochester.
We will have a variety of workshops at the summit including sessions on Health Ministries, congregational partnerships and Tanzanian culture. These interactive workshops are designed to help your congregation’s leaders ask questions, engage with current issues in the Tanzanian church, and have some fun! A Tanzanian meal will also be provided!
Special guests Rev. Emmanuel Kaghondi and Deborah Lyanga will update us on the most recent Central Diocese news. RSVP to Gwen Larson at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than September 27. We look forward to seeing you on October 8th

Information about the Central Diocese:
In late 1989 the Southeastern Minnesota Synod was linked with the Central Diocese of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tanzania as Companion Synods. The relationship has developed through exchange visits, sharing teachers and renovating the buildings at Kiomboi Lutheran Bible Institute, and forming sister congregation partnerships.
