Deaconess Kim Bueltmann

Serving the Lord in Germany



Deaconess Kim Bueltmann serves the Lord through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) as a missionary in Germany. She assists congregations in Leipzig and Chemnitz in providing outreach to refugees, who are primarily from Iran and Afghanistan. Kim is actively involved in worship planning and leading music for worship in the Farsi language, and she works closely with Persian musicians in these congregations to develop more hymns and liturgy in Farsi. In addition, she offers diaconal support and teaches the Bible and catechism to refugees and socioeconomically disadvantaged Germans.

Kim grew up in Central Illinois, and she is a member of Our Savior Lutheran Church, Whitefish Bay, Wis. She received a bachelor’s degree in theology and her deaconess certification from Concordia University Chicago, River Forest, Ill. As part of her studies, Kim served as a deaconess intern in Gifhorn, Germany (2000–2002). After graduating from college, she worked as the director of family ministry at St. John Lutheran Church, Champaign, Ill. (2002–2010), and as the director of campus ministry at Concordia University Wisconsin, Mequon, Wis. (2010–2017). In her free time, she enjoys playing various musical instruments, singing, and kayaking and hiking with her Italian greyhounds.


Pray for Kim as she serves in Germany. Ask God to give her boldness in speaking the Gospel to all those with whom she comes into contact. Pray that God would open unbelieving hearts to His Word, that those seeking refuge would find their true refuge in Christ. Give thanks for Kim as she serves God’s children in this part of the world.

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 the joyful response and generosity of God’s people over the past fiscal year, not more than 10.5 percent of any charitable contribution will be allocated to administering gifts and communicating with contributors (compared to a not-more-than ceiling of 13.5 percent the previous fiscal year). Contributions received and accepted by the LCMS are deemed to be in agreement with this statement.

Our Tax Identification Number: 43-0658188
