Rev. Jonathan Fisk: Bethany, Naperville Illinois, USA; Editor – Worldview Everlasting
Bishop Matti Vaisanen: Luther-Saatio (Mission Province of Finland)
Rev. Robert Green: Bethlehem Lutheran, Parma, Ohio, USA – LIA Chairman of the Board
Rev. David Rohde: St. Paul Lutheran Church, Wilson, Texas
Rev. Benjamin Ball: St. Paul Lutheran Church, Hamel, Illinois

Rev. Stephen van der Hoek: Gippsland Lutheran Parish, Traraigon, Victoria, Australia

The Leadership Team along with a hard-working Production Team led by Wittenberg Church Consultants, is fine tuning the case statement, preparing home gatherings around the world, producing pamphlets, and organizing an international prayer vigil.
Rev. Jonathan Fisk is heading up the prayer vigil. We will be releasing details on that within the next few days. He has already recruited several congregations to participate and individuals to pray with us in support of this cause.
If you would like to donate to this cause there is a Paypal button on the Lutherans in Africa website and more information about the campaign. In the weeks to come we will also be introducing other ways that you can get involved in this campaign.
