The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod began financially supporting the ministry of the Lutheran Church of Guam, an independent Lutheran congregation located in Anigua, Guam, in 1978. The congregation itself developed out of a Lutheran servicemen’s center, established by German missionary Edmund Kalau in the late 1950s.
When the center closed in 1969, the Lutheran Church of Guam was formed. The Lutheran Church of Guam is a congregation that affiliates itself with the Lutheran Congregations for Christ. In general, this congregation ministers to the expatriate community in the area, providing worship and fellowship opportunities for the large number of North American expatriates in their native English.
The LCMS currently provides service opportunities for the Lutheran Church of Guam in neighboring mission fields and maintains friendly relations with the pastor and leadership, despite not being in formal fellowship at this time.
