A Missional Approach

What Does This Mean?

As the hosts of this website, Drs. Kent Burreson and Rhoda Schuler have studied the adult catechumenal practices of three LCMS congregations. We are convinced that the unique approach of each congregation draws the entire congregation into a missional mindset. We are currently working on bringing the findings of our research to congregations of the LCMS through the blog on this website and through journal articles on our research. Here is a list of our journal publications: 

Burreson, Kent. “Mentoring in the Pews: Fostering a Missional Habitus.” Lutheran Mission Matters 30:1 (May 2022): 80-87.

Schuler, Rhoda Grever.  “Voyage to Belonging and Renewal through the Adult Catechumenate.” Currents in Theology and Mission 49:2 (2022): 42-48.

Burreson, Kent and Rhoda Schuler.  “‘From My Head to My Toes, I Felt like a New Body Was Created’: Lessons from Contemporary Lutheran Catechumenates.” Worship (forthcoming).
