James and Christel Neuendorf,
Serving the Lord in the Dominican Republic
James and Christel Neuendorf serve as missionaries in the Dominican Republic. James is the communication specialist for Latin America and Christel is the business manager for the same region. On a regional level, James develops resources for training and educating laity, and generates and promotes the creative expression of the Lutheran Confessional faith using local resources. He also produces multi-media resources such as books, films, websites and web video series for missionaries and national churches to use in evangelism.
Christel works with other missionaries and the LCMS partner churches in Latin America to assist with outreach and discipleship efforts there by providing administrative and managerial support.
James was born in Black River Falls, Wis., but his home congregation is St. Paul Lutheran Church in Ann Arbor, Mich. He received a bachelor’s degree from Concordia University, Ann Arbor, Mich., in religious studies, with a minor in journalism. His hobbies include traveling, photography, reading and writing. Christel is a native of Flushing, Mich., and also graduated from Concordia University, Ann Arbor, Mich., with a degree in business. She enjoys tasting coffees from around Latin America, running and cooking.
Please pray for James and Christel as they serve the Lord in the Dominican Republic and throughout Latin America. In particular, please pray for them as they serve in a place called Pueblo Nuevo in Santiago locally in the Dominican Republic. Ask the Lord to protect them as they travel throughout the region. Pray that the Holy Spirit would use them to tell the story of what He is doing across Latin America through missionaries, partner church bodies and all believers. Finally, give thanks that James and Christel have answered God’s call to serve Him in Latin America!
