Natalie Howard

Serving the Lord in the Dominican Republic



Natalie Howard serves the Lord through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) as a missionary in the Dominican Republic. In this role, she works as a regional business administrator, helping the leadership of the Latin America and the Caribbean region plan the effective implementation of regional strategy and identify the needed resources to meet global and regional goals for sharing the Gospel. Natalie also assists with developing and sustaining partnerships with non-profits, including those that work to support individuals with developmental disabilities and those that focus on children’s ministry.

Natalie’s hometown is Port Washington, Wis., and her home congregation is First Immanuel Lutheran Church, Cedarburg, Wis. She received a bachelor’s degree in marketing and business communication from Concordia University Wisconsin, Mequon. While going to school, she worked on campus in the Admissions and Academic Advising Departments. Post-graduation, she worked in public relations as an account coordinator at Hoffman York, an advertising agency in Milwaukee.

Natalie served on three mission trips to San Raymundo, Guatemala, with Casas por Cristo where she helped build houses. In her free time, she enjoys singing, learning the guitar, reading, running, traveling and learning the Spanish language.


Pray for Natalie as she serves in the Dominican Republic and in the Latin America and the Caribbean region. Ask God to give her strength and peace as she transitions to life in this new place, adjusting to the culture and learning a new language. Pray that God keeps her and the entire LCMS mission team serving in this region safe at all times. Pray that Natalie is an effective witness to the people in the Dominican Republic so that the Gospel may be shared and God’s grace may be received. Let us give thanks to God that Natalie is serving His children in this part of the world and that His Word is going forth in this region.
