5th Conference

of the International Loehe Society

25-28 July 2021 - Dubuque/Iowa, USA


Is Christian identity in crisis?

What does Christian faith mean in a time of crises?

Why do we need the church in the world today?

These are the questions that many people in the 19th century asked themselves as they were unsettled by enormous upheavals. Seventy million people, mostly younger men and women, saw no future in Europe, and so left their homes and moved into a new, unknown world. Wilhelm Loehe and his companions developed visions and practical models for the church of the future.

The 5th Conference of the International Loehe Society 2021 discusses the current relevance of these new approaches in the fields of theology, liturgy, mission and diaconia.


The conference is made possible with support from: German American National Congress (DANK), Diakoneo (Diakonie Neuendettelsau), Gesellschaft für Innere und Äußere Mission and Wartburg Theological Seminary.
