The Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod
Since 1991, communist repression of religion in Kazakhstan under the Soviet Union has given way to greater religious tolerance. In 1993, the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod began work in Kazakhstan and has since established the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Kazakhstan.
In 1995, the LCMS began support of ELC mercy work with a grant that provided health services for those living in a fishing village. Through these kinds of relationships, built from LCMS projects, LWML grants and partnerships with other LCMS ministries, many doors have been opened to witness to the Lord’s great love through acts of mercy.
Currently, LCMS support of the ELC includes:
Other LCMS partners in Kazakhstan have included: Bethesda Lutheran Communities, Concordia Mission Society, Lutheran Heritage Foundation, Lutheran Hour Ministries, LWML, MOST Ministries, and Orphan Grain Train.
The ELC is presently comprised of six congregations, seven ordained pastors, numerous small groups and various individual men and women who are receiving training in Lutheran doctrine and worship.
