The Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod
The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod began supporting work in Angola in 1997 in partnership with the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Brazil (IELB). In 2001, the IELB sent the Rev. Dr. Carlos Walter Winterle, president of the IELB, to Angola to teach intensive courses and to mentor a local pastor in leading the Angolan church’s Theological Education by Extension (TEE) program. Several other pastors and professors of the IELB continue to travel to Angola to train future pastors. This partnership is based in Portuguese — a common language for both the IELB and the Igreja Luterana Confessional em Angola (ILCA), or the Confessional Lutheran Church in Angola. The LCMS has provided grants for projects that support the development of sewing classes, vegetable gardens with water pumps and a health center.
