List of Lutheran Denominations

The Confessional Evangelical Lutheran Conference (CELC) [1] is the successor to the Evangelical Lutheran Synodical Conference of North America except that it is international in scope rather than restricted to North America.

First founded in 1993 with thirteen confessional Lutheran national churches as members, the Conference has grown to twenty members today. Plenary sessions are held every three years. To date there have been five plenary meetings (1993, 1996, 1999, 2002, 2005, 2008), with regional meetings held in the intervening years.
