Jana Inglehart

Serving the Lord in the Latin America and Caribbean Region



Jana Inglehart serves the Lord through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) as the regional communication specialist for the Latin America and Caribbean region, based in the Dominican Republic. In this missionary role, she assists national churches and missionary pastors in church planting through the provision of media tools they can use to give witness to the Gospel. She works with pastors to create visual aids and written materials to help the laity grow in God’s Word. Jana is also helping to establish a lay Bible vocation-based online institute for individuals who have little or no access to a trained pastor or evangelist. She provides technical support and assistance to four seminaries to help them promote their teachings online which, in turn, greatly multiplies the number of people who can be reached with sound Biblical teaching.

Another facet of Jana’s work is taking photographs and shooting videos of the mission work taking place in this region, as well as writing and editing articles for LCMS print media, websites and blog sites. These tasks help to spread the word about what God is doing through His people in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Jana was born in Sacramento, Calif., and her hometown is West Monroe, La. Her home congregation is St. Paul Lutheran Church, Winside, Neb. Jana received a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Northeast Louisiana University, Monroe. In 2001, she finished her Lutheran Teacher’s Colloquy. Before serving as a missionary, Jana served as the director of public relations for Orphan Grain Train, Norfolk, Neb. (2010-2014); the director of Jesus Our Savior Lutheran Preschool on the Winnebago Reservation, Winnebago, Neb. (1998-2010); and as a missionary in Papua New Guinea (1984-1986). Jana enjoys hiking, bicycling, swimming, writing and graphic design.


Pray for Jana as she serves in the Dominican Republic and the Latin America and Caribbean region. Pray God gives her strength and peace as she learns the culture and the language. Ask God to help her learn the Spanish language so she can effectively communicate and share God’s Word with the people she is called to serve. Pray that God uses Jana’s gifts and talents to help further His kingdom. Pray for the hearts of people here in the United States who will partner with Jana in prayer and financial support so they can participate in the Kingdom work with her. Let us give thanks to God that Jana is serving His 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 13.5 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.
