James Krey

Serving the Lord in the Latin America and Caribbean Region



James Krey serves the Lord through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) in the Latin America and Caribbean region, based in Puerto Rico. As disaster response project manager, he works closely with the regional business manager to oversee the finances and payroll for the LCMS mission work being done in Puerto Rico. James also manages the disaster response projects that are ongoing in this country and supports the LCMS missionaries serving in this region. He works with local church partners on other requested projects as well.

James was born in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. His home congregation is Ascension Lutheran Church (LCMS), Montreal, Quebec, Canada. He received an advanced diploma from St. Clair College, Windsor, Ontario. Before serving in Puerto Rico, James served in the Dominican Republic for three years as a communication specialist. Prior to him heading to the mission field, he served on two mission trips to the Dominican Republic (June 2014 and June 2015) and one mission trip to Nicaragua (March 2013). He also volunteered with Bethesda Lutheran Communities Disability Services and with the after-school program at First Lutheran Christian Academy, Windsor. In his free time, James enjoys volunteering at his church, sports, hiking and spending time with friends.


Pray for James as he serves in Puerto Rico and throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. Pray God gives him strength and peace as he learns the culture and the language. Ask God to help him learn the Spanish language so he can effectively communicate and share God’s Word with the people he is called to serve. Pray for the hearts of people here in the United States who will partner with James in prayer and financial support so they can participate in the Kingdom work with him. Let us give thanks to God that James 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 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.
