Rev. Greg Seltz is the new speaker on The Lutheran Hour radio broadcast

Lutheran Hour Ministries has announced that Rev. Gregory P. Seltz of Orange, California, will become speaker of The Lutheran Hour® radio program. He succeeds Rev. Dr. Ken Klaus, who retired from full-time duties at the end of 2010 after serving in the speaker’s role since 2002. Rev. Seltz officially begins his ministry with LHM part-time February 1 and will become full time on or before June 1.

“We are pleased that the Lord has led us to Rev. Seltz with his diverse ministry experience as the next person to carry on our rich history of proclaiming the Gospel,” says Lutheran Hour Ministries Executive Director Bruce Wurdeman. “While we will soon have a new speaker behind the microphone, our focus for the program will remain the same: reaching the lost with the message of hope found in Christ.”

“I’m honoured to now be included in the long line of speakers whose goal was to faithfully bring Christ to the nations and the nations to the church,” says Rev. Seltz. “I’m also very excited about the new opportunities for presenting that same Good News to our increasingly multi-cultural and diverse world.”

Currently the director of the Cross-Cultural Ministry Center as well as professor of Theology at Concordia University in Irvine, California, Rev. Seltz is responsible for training students to launch ministries in a variety of cultural settings, including Vietnamese, Korean, Spanish, Indonesian, Indian, and African-American, to name just a few. He also has extensive experience in starting mission congregations, including being the founding pastor of Church For All Nations (LCMS) in Manhattan, the first new Lutheran mission start in New York City in more than 40 years.

As speaker of The Lutheran Hour, his messages will reach communities across Canada and the US, and internationally on the Internet.

Lutheran Hour Ministries is a Christian outreach supporting churches worldwide in its mission of Bringing Christ to the Nations — and the Nations to the Church. Its parent organization, the International Lutheran Laymen’s League is an auxiliary of Lutheran Church–Canada and The Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod.
