Rev. Dr. Gerald and Heidi Paul

Serving the Lord in the Cayman Islands


 

Bio

The Rev. Dr. Gerald and Heidi Paul serve the Lord through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) as career missionaries in the Cayman Islands. As a pastor and church planter, Gerald works with local church leaders at Safe Harbour Lutheran Church to reach out to the people of the Cayman Islands — both locals and expats — with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Gerald also seeks to serve the Cuban refugee population on Grand Cayman, and he supports Concordia the Reformer Seminary in the Dominican Republic as an adjunct professor. In her role, Heidi supports the mission efforts and is exploring the possibility of starting a preschool for local children.

Gerald was born in Piet Retief, South Africa. He earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Pretoria, South Africa, and received his Master of Divinity degree and Ph.D. in Missiology from Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne. Before becoming a career missionary, he was senior pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church, Great Falls, Mont. Prior to that, he served parishes in South Africa and Wyoming. Heidi was born in Port Shepstone, South Africa. She earned a bachelor’s degree in education from the University of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, and a master’s degree in early childhood education from the University of Montana in Missoula, Mont. She was a teacher before heading to the mission field. Gerald and Heidi both enjoy camping, hiking and running.

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 13.5 percent of a charitable contribution may 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.
