St. Philip is a new mission of the Evangelical Lutheran Diocese of North America (ELDoNA). St. Philip currently has extensions in Milwaukee, WI and Northern IL. Our worship is hosted in Downtown Milwaukee. Our goal is to study and worship in God's Word, and to uphold a Christ-centered focus as found in the Bible as well as the traditional Lutheran works such as The Book of Concord and The Lutheran Hymnal.
I would like to welcome everyone to the St. Philip Lutheran Mission. First of all, I am a regularly called and ordained pastor. I am Deacon for Salem Lutheran Church in Malone, Texas, and as part of my pastoral responsibilities to Salem I am assigned as a missionary to southeastern Wisconsin and the general Lake County area of northern Illinois. Our hope and prayer is to, by the grace of Jesus Christ, establish a congregation that offers historic, confessional, liturgical Lutheranism. We aren’t driven by grand numbers or results. Our focus is to faithfully proclaim, study, and worship in God’s Word. Like the Church has been in former generations, our beginnings will be small and humble, and we commend the increase into our Father’s hands!
