Friedrich Conrad Dietrich Wyneken got off the boat and set foot on United States soil in Baltimore, Maryland in 1838.Though he was to be a missionary in the Midwest the people of Baltimore remembered him from his earliest days here and called him as pastor (1845 to 1850). His work as pastor became a model for city churches then and now, from Baltimore to St. Louis to San Francisco.
Today the Wyneken Project has adopted his name in recognition of his pastoral work and outreach. We support local congregations. We are committed to establishing new churches where needed. We encourage Lutherans to know what they believe and rejoice in their Lutheran identity.
