THE LUTHERAN ORTHODOX CHURCH CLERGY LIST
Above: Bishop Louis Marcel Pierre, Port Au Prince, Haiti
The following is a partial list of rostered ordained clergy and licensed clergy in good standing with The Lutheran Orthodox Church. Not all clergy affiliated with this church are listed on this page for both privacy as well as security reasons.
This list makes no distinction between Bishops, Ministers, Deacons or licensed clergy. (Licensed clergy are those who have met the qualifications of this denomination but have not had their formal consecration ceremony performed at the date of rostering. A temporary license would be issued with full clergy privileges, with a specified renewal/expiration date).
The only acceptable credentials are as follows:
For Bishops: A complete book listing their Apostolic Succession, with their name printed in the book. A Letter of Appointment with the signature of The Presiding Bishop and sealed with the LOC corporate seal. A Certificate of Consecration (ordination) with the signature and seal of The Presiding Bishop.
For Ordained Ministers (Priests) and Deacons: A letter of Appointment signed by The Presiding Bishop along with a copy of their ordaining Bishop's Apostolic Lineage and a letter of His or Her (the Bishop's) authority to perform such a ceremony, and a certificate of ordination signed by the Presiding Bishop and the Consecrating Bishop.
(Above: Rev Andrew McMenamin)
Licensed Clergy: A Letter of Appointment to the Office of Ministry or a License To Minister signed by The Presiding Bishop or his authorized representative. The License to Minister under the LOC jurisdiction shall have an expiration date of ONE YEAR from date of issue, and the corporate seal of The Lutheran Orthodox Church or the issuing Bishop.
In addition all clergy of The Lutheran Orthodox Church will possess a wallet sized ID card with the actual signature of The Presiding Bishop and corporate seal along with an anti-forgery feature imbedded within the card and not disclosed unless the validity of the card is in question. (Cards are currently being issued and not all ministers may have received the new ID as of this date).
No other credentials shall be considered valid unless verified by The Presiding Bishop.
To verify the credentials of anyone listed on this page, or someone presenting credentials but not listed here, please contact our office via telephone, email or regular post.
