The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod’s Commission on Theology and Church Relations has produced reports that examine Scripture regarding God’s design for man/woman relationships in marriage and the church. The CTCR has also issued and compiled opinions on those reports.

The documents focus on issues such as the order of creation, women and military service, women’s suffrage in the church, and the service of women in local congregations and in synodical offices.
