General English Lutheran Conference of Missouri

The General English Lutheran Conference of Missouri (1889/89-91) was organized as a group of congregations using the English language at that time. In 1891 it changed its name to The English Evangelical Lutheran Synod of Missouri and Other States (1891-1911) until 1911 when it joined the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod as the English District (1911-present). It published the Evangelical Lutheran Hymn Book (1889) which went through two editions before this church body joined the Missouri Synod.
