Northern Great Lakes Synod & Eastern and Coastal Diocese of Tanzania
Partners in the Gospel since 1991
Our Mission: “To participate in each other’s life and mission through communication, learning and prayer.” (Romans 1:12: “That you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith.”)
Our partnership with the Eastern & Coastal Diocese of Tanzania (ECD) began in 1991. It was an unlikely match with a rural 94 congregation Synod in the Midwest and a large urban Diocese serving 52 parishes with many subparishes in the largest city in Tanzania. It has proven to be a true blessing to all who have participated in the activities of the partnership.
80 congregations, 119 pastors, 27,022 members
82 parishes, 153 sub parishes, 108 pastors, 176 evangelists, 83 parish workers, 295,409 members
