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. In her role as a deaconess, she assists German congregations in providing outreach to refugees from the Middle East. She teaches these refugees and other new believers about the Christian faith and leads outreach activities. She helps the refugees learn German and provides them compassionate support and friendship. Kim also supervises GEO (globally engaged in outreach) missionaries serving in Germany.

Kim grew up in Central Illinois, and she currently 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 (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 many opportunities to meet and witness to the Middle Eastern refugees who are living there. Pray that God gives her the ability and patience to learn the Farsi language quickly. Ask God to keep her and the other members of the LCMS mission team serving in Germany safe at all times. Let us give thanks that Kim is serving 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 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
