Southwestern Texas Synod (SWT) is proud to be one of the 65 Synods in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. The Synod covers a wide area spanning from almost to the western edge of Texas to just north of Austin and down south to the tip of Texas. We currently have 130 congregations in 8 conferences with over 250+ rostered leaders.
Our purpose statement is: God's grace transforms and connects us to learn, to love, to lead. We are a church that believes God is calling us into the world – together. The Southwestern Texas Synod and our partners offer a variety of places, spaces, and opportunities specifically designed to support and connect all people as they grow in faith and discover God’s mission in this world.
