The 2016 Synodical Convention passed a resolution to raise money for church work students by pitting President Harrison’s mustache against President Forke’s, (Montana District President). The loser, in terms of which mustache raises the least money, will have to shave at the end of the year. Please be generous. It is for a good cause, and it makes for a little fun at someone else’s expense.
How to vote for ‘The Mustache Resolution’ by mail
Cast your vote for who has the best mustache, write down for whom you are voting (Harrison or Forke), include your donation and specify the fund(s) to which the donation should be directed (for seminary-student financial aid, the For the Sake of the Church fund [for all Concordia University System schools] or a specific LCMS college or university’s scholarship fund). Mail this to the LCMS Chief Financial Officer, 1333 S. Kirkwood Road, St. Louis, MO 63122-7295.
For credit-card donations (of at least $15) with your vote, contact the LCMS Church Information Center at 888-THE-LCMS (843-5267).
Because of the cost to record and receipt donations, only those giving $15 or more will receive a separate tax-deductible letter from the LCMS.
