Rev. Alan Ludwig
Serving the Lord in Russia



Rev. Alan LudwigRev. Alan Ludwig serves the Lord through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) in Siberia, Russia. He is a theological educator, which includes teaching seminary courses, working with team members in developing theological education in Russia and other republics of the former Soviet Union and, upon request, teaching and preaching at a local Lutheran congregation in the city of Novosibirsk in Siberia. Since 1998, Alan has worked with the Siberian Evangelical Lutheran Church (SELC) and taught seminary courses at Lutheran Theological Seminary in Novosibirsk, which is operated by the SELC, a partner/sister church of the LCMS. The seminary was founded in 1997.

Alan graduated from Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, Mo., in 1989 with his Master of Divinity and earned an S.T.M. in 1992. From 1992-1998, Alan served as the pastor of Concordia Lutheran Church, Cresbard, S.D., and Immanuel Lutheran Church, Wecota, S.D. Alan also served on the staff of LOGIA, a Lutheran theological journal. Prior to attending seminary, Alan graduated from Boise State University with a bachelor's degree in music and worked as a private music teacher. His hobbies include music, art, poetry, literature, computers and walking.


Please pray for Alan as he serves in this capacity. He asks, “Pray for health and strength for my wife, Patricia, and I, and for me, that I may faithfully fulfill my call to serve the church in Siberia. We desire prayers for the SELC: for the bishop, the pastors and the deacons — that the Lord keep them faithful in preaching the Word and administering the Sacraments; for the laity — that they grow in grace and in the knowledge of the Son of God; for the continued spread of the Gospel throughout the vast territory of Siberia. Finally, we request prayers for our seminarians — that they be molded by the Word of God into faithful and worthy candidates for the holy ministry, and that our seminary rector would be sustained in his demanding role.” Let us thank God for Alan's service to His children in this part of the world.
