Mark and Megan Mantey - Serving the Lord in Uganda

Mark and Megan Mantey

Serving the Lord in Africa


Mark and Megan Mantey serve the Lord through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod as career missionaries in Africa, based in Nairobi, Kenya. Mark serves as associate regional business manager and assists with, implements and manages financial practices for the field and the missionaries. As regional coordinator for care and development, Megan works with local church bodies throughout Africa by organizing, teaching and participating in church leadership conferences and training opportunities. She also helps oversee and manage care ministries for the Africa region’s missionaries. Before their time in Kenya, Mark and Megan served in Uganda for six years. Through these interactions in finance, education and care, Mark and Megan actively share the love of Christ and proclaim the Gospel through their vocations.

Mark has roots in Wisconsin and Iowa but grew up in Wilmington, N.C. He earned his B.S. in accounting from Colorado State University. Prior to becoming a missionary, Mark worked for 20 years in a family business, primarily as the vice-president of sales. When Mark is not working, he enjoys watching DIY programs for whatever project he is thinking about at that moment. He and Megan also like exploring new places together and finding humor in everyday situations.

Megan (Flannery) was born in southern California and grew up in different parts of the western United States. She received her bachelor’s degree in Christian education and her director of Christian education (DCE) certification from Concordia University, Portland, Ore. She also earned a master’s degree in mental health counseling from Campbell University, Buies Creek, N.C. Megan was a DCE in North Carolina and Virginia and a mental health therapist before serving on the international mission field. Besides exploring new places with Mark, Megan maintains a part-time counseling practice.


Pray for the Manteys as they serve their neighbors and their fellow missionaries in Africa. Ask God to give them wisdom and discernment in their work and their relationships with the churches and the local community. Pray that Mark and Megan would share Christ’s love, mercy and joy with others at all times, and that they can lead and collaborate in Christ-like ways. Let us give thanks that the Manteys are serving God’s people throughout Africa.

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.
