Post-Assembly Visitation Program
Lutherans stand ready to welcome Assembly participants into their homes,
neighborhoods, congregations and ministries during the 2003 LWF Pre and
Post-Assembly Visitation Program. These visits will be an opportunity to
experience ministries, gain new perspectives, and make new friends. They will
also offer a chance for visitors to share insights into ministries and
challenges from their respective church and country backgrounds.

Three- to ten-day visits to 47
different ministries are being planned by the Evangelical Lutheran Church in
Canada (ELCIC) and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Visits to
Canada will take place prior to the LWF Assembly and to the United States and
the Caribbean after the Assembly. Accommodation, food and local costs during the
visits will be covered by the host churches. Some subsidy funds may be available
to assist delegates with travel costs.
Who can participate?
delegates from LWF member churches are eligible to participate. Visitors and
non-delegates are also welcome to participate in the visits as space allows.
