Rev. Daniel and Kathy Conrad

Serving the Lord in Dominican Republic


The Rev. Daniel and Kathy Conrad serve the Lord through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) in the Dominican Republic. In this role, Daniel serves as a professor at Concordia the Reformer Seminary in Palmar Arriba, Dominican Republic. The seminary provides theological education to future pastors who come from 11 countries in Latin America. By the grace of God, Daniel helps prepare pastors who will serve throughout the region.

Daniel was born in Saginaw, Mich. He earned a bachelor’s degree in engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and received his Master of Divinity from Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, Ind. (1984). He is currently working on his thesis for his doctorate in missiology from Concordia Theological Seminary. Daniel completed his pastoral vicarage and was a missionary for 20 years in Venezuela (1984–2003). While serving in Venezuela, he focused on the formation and mentoring of national pastors in that country. Daniel served as the pastor at Zion Lutheran Church, Terra Bella, Calif., (2003–2014) prior to receiving the call to serve first in Mexico and now in the Dominican Republic.

Kathy was born in Dearborn, Mich. She studied for two years at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. She worked as a teacher’s aide and served with Daniel in Venezuela before heading to the mission field. Daniel and Kathy have a beautiful daughter, Ana, who is now enrolled in college in the United States. The Conrads enjoy traveling, reading and learning about the cultures in Latin America.


Pray for the Conrads as they serve in the Dominican Republic. Ask God to give Daniel strength and wisdom as he teaches future pastors, as well as to raise up more pastors to serve His people throughout Latin America. Let us give thanks that the Conrads are 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 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.
