The partnership between the Greater Milwaukee Synod and the Diocese of Meru in Tanzania was formalized at the Greater Milwaukee Synod Assembly in 1995 and by the subsequent assembly of the Diocese. After mutually adopting some guidelines, the partnership was launched when a delegation of 9 people travelled from Milwaukee to the Diocese of Meru in January 1997. This partnership has grown and deepened over the years.

The chair of the Meru Committee is:

Pastor Jay Thorson

Bwana Asifiwe!
