About Us

It’s a long way from Liberia to East Lansdowne, but over that distance God planted and nurtured a small worshipping community in a refugee camp into a thriving Lutheran Church officially welcomed at the 2012 Assembly.

In 1996, a high-school student named Moses Dennis who fled the Liberian civil war for a refugee camp in Ghana, was organizing a Lutheran worshiping community there. The young man gathered prayer groups house to house, said Thomas Kpanka, a fellow refugee. “He was hard-working, and always evangelizing,” Kpanka said.
