Tirzah Krey

Serving the Lord in the Latin America and Caribbean Region



Tirzah Krey, B.S.N., serves the Lord through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) in the Latin America and Caribbean region, based in the Dominican Republic. In her role as regional human care coordinator, Tirzah works alongside pastors, deaconesses and seminary students to promote community health and to complete congregation health visits. She coordinates community health initiatives and fairs where mission plants are located in this region. Tirzah conducts well-child checks and teaches health education inside Lutheran and public elementary schools. She also serves with regional leadership to care and advocate for the missionaries and their families serving in the Latin America and Caribbean region in all aspects of their physical, spiritual and emotional health. Tirzah intentionally shares the Gospel through the relationships she builds in all her activities.

Tirzah was born in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. Her home congregation is Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, Amherstburg, Ontario, Canada. She received her bachelor’s degree in nursing (B.S.N.) from the University of Windsor. She was very involved in the University’s Nursing Society during her college years, organizing events and fundraisers for community charities and working to improve student life on campus. Tirzah worked at Harper University Hospital, Detroit, for two years before serving in Latin America. She also worked with Bethesda doing camp ministries for adults with disabilities and, in 2012, participated in a mission trip to Nicaragua. Tirzah’s hobbies include traveling, reading, volunteering at church and spending time with family.


Pray for Tirzah as she serves the churches and people around the Latin America and Caribbean region, especially in the Dominican Republic. Ask God to give Tirzah strength and peace as she travels to build her prayer and financial support network. Pray for her transition from Canada to the Dominican Republic. Ask God to be with Tirzah as she experiences known and unknown challenges in the days and weeks ahead. Let’s give God thanks that Tirzah has been appointed to this new position and that she is serving God and His Kingdom faithfully.

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 differently. 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, no more than 12 percent of a charitable contribution may be applied to administering gifts and communicating with contributors.  Contributions received and accepted by the LCMS are deemed to be in agreement with this statement.

Our Tax Identification Number is: 43-0658188
