Rev. Ted and Rebecca Krey

Serving the Lord in the Latin America and Caribbean Region


Rev. Ted and Rebecca Krey have served in the Dominican Republic since 2009. Ted serves as the regional director for the Latin America and Caribbean region of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS), which encompasses 22 countries in South and Central America and the Caribbean. He is privileged to oversee 40 missionaries planting churches in 10 countries. Hand in hand with church planting, he works to establish the formation of pastors and deaconesses in Latin America. In 12 countries, Ted also works with partner churches to strengthen them in their church planting efforts and in various other ministry areas.

2017 marks the 10th year of LCMS ministry work being done in the Dominican Republic. As a result of what the Lord has been doing through His Gospel work over these 10 years, five missions have been established. Two Lutheran schools have been started, along with Good Shepherd Lutheran Homes which seeks to serve people with intellectual and physical disabilities throughout the country. A seminary is being built which seeks to serve men and women throughout Latin America. Pray for Ted and this missionary team and the formation of pastors and deaconesses.

Ted is a 2001 graduate of Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne. Rebecca has a master’s degree in biochemistry and formerly worked in a genetics research lab, studying cardiovascular disease and diabetes. She previously served for two years as a long-term missionary in Slovakia. Previously, Ted served in Venezuela for eight years. Rebecca joined him after they were married in June 2008. Ted and Rebecca enjoy spending time with their five beautiful children - Esther, Matthias, Natalia Anna, Evangeline and Azariah.


The Kreys write, “Give thanks with us in this Reformation year that it is still all about Jesus and the telling of Him and the forgiveness of sins to people who do not yet know. Pray for us that even more churches would be planted so that all might be gathered where Jesus is and receive His gifts. Please ask the Lord of the harvest to call more men and women in service to Him."

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 12.5 percent of any charitable contribution will be allocated to administering gifts and communicating with contributors (compared to a not-more-than ceiling of 10.5 percent the previous fiscal year). Contributions received and accepted by the LCMS are deemed to be in agreement with this statement.
