Rev. Dale and Suzanne Kaster

Serving the Lord in Prague, Czech Republic


Rev. Dale and Suzanne Kaster serve the Lord as missionaries through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) in Prague, Czech Republic. In this role, Dale serves as the pastor of St. Michael the Archangel Lutheran Church, an English-language congregation in Prague, which serves the LCMS Eurasia regional office staff and many English-speaking expats living in Prague. In addi¬tion, Dale serves as the Eurasia regional chaplain and provides pastoral service to the LCMS missionaries serving in the Silesian region of the Czech Republic. Through the relationships formed, Dale and Suzanne seek to share the Gospel with the people of the Czech Republic.

Dale was born in Stephenville, Newfoundland, Canada. His home congregation is Celebration Lutheran Church, Jacksonville, Fla. He graduated from Concordia College, Bronxville, N.Y., with a bachelor’s degree in Judeo-Christian heritage. He received his Master of Divinity from Concordia Seminary, St. Louis. Before serving in Prague, Dale served as a pastor at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, Point Pleasant, N.J. (1989–1994); Celebration Lutheran Church, Jacksonville, Fla. (1994–2010); and Martin Luther Chapel, Pennsauken, N.J. (2010–13). Dale served the Office of International Mission as a theological educator in Tamale, Ghana (2014–18). In his free time, Dale enjoys cooking, reading, walking, and skeet shooting.

Suzanne was born in LaGrange, Ill., and her home congregation is also Celebration Lutheran Church, Jacksonville, Fla. She attended Concordia College, now Concordia University Chicago, River Forest, Ill. Prior to becoming a missionary, she worked in retail. Suzanne enjoys cross-stitching, reading and working on genealogy.


Pray for Dale and Suzanne as they serve in the Czech Republic. Ask God to daily give Dale strength and knowledge as he serves the congregation in Prague. Pray that the Holy Spirit leads and guides him as he ministers to the LCMS missionaries serving in the Eurasia region. Pray for the people of the Czech Republic who will learn of the Gospel through the missionary work that is being done in this country.

The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod Inc., including Mission Central (in Mapleton, Iowa), is an IRS registered 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity.

A contribution designated (restricted) for a specific purpose, when accepted, will be used only to fund expenses related to that purpose. Occasionally, we may receive more in contributions for a particular purpose than can be wisely applied to it in the foreseeable future or the purpose may cease to be feasible. In these situations, the LCMS will make reasonable attempts to contact contributors to apply their contribution toward another aspect of ministry that aligns closely the contributor’s goals and values. If a contributor cannot be contacted, the LCMS will use the gift to meet a similar pressing need that most closely matches the contributor's original intent.

Consistent with Synod Board policy and in recognition of a more challenging economic and philanthropic/fundraising environment due to inflationary pressure, not more than 12.5 percent of any charitable contribution will be allocated to administering gifts and communicating with contributors. Contributions received and accepted by the LCMS are deemed to be in agreement with this statement.
