HKIS and the LCMS
For over 40 years, our relationship with the Lutheran Church, Missouri Synod (LCMS), has been a rich partnership. In recent years, HKIS has shared facilities and human resources with the Church of All Nations (CAN), collaborated with the LCMS on various service activities and provided cash collateral for a loan to start Concordia School in Shanghai.
HKIS does not transfer any funds that we receive from tuition, donations or otherwise to CAN or the LCMS. The Board of Managers is committed to ensuring interactions with HKIS's strategic partners are handled transparently with the best interest of HKIS as the touchstone for decision-making. The "Operating Agreement" between HKIS and the LCMS is found below.
