Rev. Tony and Connie Booker,
Serving the Lord in the Czech Republic
Rev. Tony and Constance (Connie) Booker serve the Lord as missionaries through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod in Prague, Czech Republic. Tony serves as the pastor to a growing congregation of English-speaking expatriates and helps build closer relationships between the LCMS and Lutheran churches in the region, so that they might work together in mutual mission and ministry. He also coordinates cultural exchange events with members and institutions of the surrounding community; is supervising a Czech vicar to help build the long-term strength and growth of the local Lutheran church; and serves as the LCMS supervisor for local short-term mission teams and projects.
Tony grew up as a “missionary kid” in Austria, where his parents served with Greater Europe Mission. Tony and Connie are from Fort Wayne, Ind., where they are members of Emmanuel Lutheran Church, and where Tony served as pastoral assistant from 2009-2011. Tony holds a Bachelor of Arts in international studies from the University of Wyoming and a Russian language certificate from Indiana University’s Russia and East European Institute. He received his M.Div. from Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne. Connie holds a Bachelor of Science in nursing and worked at the neonatal intensive care unit at Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne for 17 years prior to moving overseas.
In Fort Wayne, Tony was an active member of their local school board and served as the board president of Imagine Schools, a local charter school. Connie was active in the restoration of the C.F.D. Wyneken house with the Friends of Wyneken and organized activities for their church’s craft group. Tony’s hobbies include travel, world history and international politics, while Connie enjoys genealogy, crafts, website development and travel.
Please pray for Tony and Connie as they serve in Prague. They ask, “For wisdom and discernment as we consider where to expend our efforts in a region where there is so much Christian history, yet so little Christianity.” Join us in giving thanks to the Lord for His willingness and desire to use the Bookers as His tools in the Czech Republic.
