Rev. Ted and Rebecca Krey -- Serving the Lord in the Latin America and Caribbean Region

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 the 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 45 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. Ted also works with partner churches to strengthen them in their church planting efforts and in various other ministry areas.

The LCMS Office of International Mission has worked in the Dominican Republic since 2005. As a result of what the Lord has been doing through His Gospel work, six 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 regional seminary established in 2018 serves over 120 men and women throughout Latin America in the formation of pastors and deaconesses.

Ted is a 2001 graduate of Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne. He previously served in Venezuela for 8 years before marrying Rebecca in 2008. Rebecca has a master’s degree in biochemistry. She previously served for two years as a long-term missionary in Slovakia. Ted and Rebecca enjoy spending time with their five beautiful children — Esther, Matthias, Natalia, Evangeline and Azariah.


The Kreys write, “Pray that the Lord would send even more missionaries into the Harvest and prayerfully consider how you might serve or who you might encourage to serve. Give thanks with us for the churches being planted, the pastors and deaconesses being formed and pray for the Holy Spirit to continue to throw out the Gospel seed to an ever-expanding circle of hearers so that all might hear of our dear Lord Jesus and His death and resurrection for the forgiveness of sins.”

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. Contributions received and accepted by the LCMS are deemed to be in agreement with this statement.
