Erin Mackenzie

Serving the Lord in the Latin America and the Caribbean Region


Erin Mackenzie serves the Lord through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) as a missionary in the Latin America and Caribbean region, based in the Dominican Republic. As the regional volunteer coordinator, she connects LCMS members with the day-to-day activities of foreign missionaries and local leaders, with the goal of educating and inspiring them to become advocates, long-term supporters and servants in their own churches and communities. When volunteers serve on-field anywhere from one week to six months — always at the invitation of missionaries and partner church leaders — Erin is involved in every step of the process. Through this work, she seeks collaboration where possible and desires to equip all LCMS volunteers for effective service.

Erin was born in St. Louis, where her home congregation of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church (Des Peres) is located. She graduated with honors from Drury University, Springfield, Mo., with a bachelor’s degree in Spanish. She also studied abroad at the Universidad de Granada, Granada, Spain. Prior to her work in the Dominican Republic, Erin worked as a marketing manager at Concordia Publishing House. She also served as an LCMS missionary at Ysleta Lutheran Mission Human Care in El Paso, Texas, for three years (2009-2011). In addition, Erin has participated in several short-term mission teams within the Latin America region. Erin’s hobbies include reading, running, playing Scrabble and trying new recipes.


Pray for Erin as she serves in the Latin America and Caribbean region. Pray that she is effective in building relationships with local members and partners so that Christ might be made known more widely and effectively. Give thanks to God for the faithful service of those who volunteer their time, talents and treasures in support of LCMS mission efforts in this part of the world, and ask Him to give discernment to those considering this option. Let us give thanks for Erin and her service to God’s children.

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.
