Rev. Peter and Kristie Kolb,

Serving the Lord in Thailand



Pastor Peter and Kristie Kolb and their childrenRev. Peter and Kristie Kolb serve the Lord through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) as missionaries in Thailand. As a national pastoral developer, Pastor Kolb mentors and builds up the Thai Lutheran pastors so they can proclaim the saving Word of God even more faithfully. He provides for instruction and faithful resources in this country with only a 1% Christian population. He also delivers pastoral care to the LCMS workers and other Lutheran expatriates in Thailand.

Pastor Kolb was born in Washington but was raised in the Midwest and California. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Concordia University, Nebraska, Seward, and received his Master of Divinity from Concordia Seminary, St. Louis. Before becoming a missionary, he served as a pastor at Faith Lutheran Church, Corsicana, Texas, and Holy Cross Lutheran Church, Vandalia, Illinois.

Kristie’s hometown is Hurst, Texas. She earned a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Concordia University, Nebraska, Seward. She enjoys reading and playing games with her family. Pastor Kolb and Kristie enjoy spending time with their eight beautiful children - Shelby, Mary, Micah, Daniel, Christopher, Matthew, Jesse and Katie - who are with them in the mission field.


Pray for the Kolb family as they serve in Thailand. Pray for them as they transition to life in Thailand and learn the Thai language and culture. Ask God to use them daily to lovingly minister to the local people with whom they serve and live. Pray for all missionaries, wherever they are serving, that they may not be discouraged, but that the Gospel would be freely preached to all people of all tribes and languages on Earth. Pray for ongoing financial provision for the Kolb family so they may continue to serve. Let us give thanks to God for the Kolb family who serve His children in this part of the world.
