Anton Lutz
Serving the Lord in Papua New Guinea



As a missionary of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS), Anton Lutz has been serving in Papua New Guinea since 2004. His work in Papua New Guinea has included infrastructure development at Kaiam Airstrip (2005-2015), community mobilization and HIV education (2004-2010), hospital equipment maintenance, assisting in the Gutnius Lutheran Church conflict mediation process, and undertaking various “impossible” tasks alongside mission partners.

Anton’s extensive experience living and working in the most remote communities of Papua New Guinea gives him unparalleled opportunities to serve others with God’s love.

Anton now works with diverse partners to combat the rising tide of sorcery accusation-based violence in Papua New Guinea. Often a first responder, he provides aid and rescue to torture survivors, as well as raising awareness in some of the most remote and violent communities.

Anton grew up in Papua New Guinea where his parents were LCMS missionaries since 1986. He attended Valparaiso University, Valparaiso, Ind., before returning to serve in Papua New Guinea.


Please pray for Anton as he serves in Papua New Guinea. Pray for health and safety and for ongoing guidance and strength as he deals with complex situations. Pray that national and local leaders will be raised up to lead Papua New Guinea and the Church forward with wisdom and courage.
