Mark and Megan Mantey

Serving the Lord in Uganda



Mark and Megan Mantey serve the Lord through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) as career missionaries in Uganda. Mark serves as project manager for the seminary, managing the financial aspects and collaborating in the creation of a long-term business plan. As an instructor of Christian education and counseling, Megan teaches classes at the seminary and advises on its program development. Mark and Megan are also grateful to be involved in the daily life of the local community and the Lutheran Church of Uganda (LCU). Through these interactions, they build partnerships that assist the LCU in sharing the love of Christ and proclaiming the Gospel.

Mark has roots in Wisconsin and Iowa, but grew up in Wilmington, N.C. Right now, he is studying accounting at Colorado State University. Prior to becoming a missionary in Uganda, 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, as well as 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 earned her master’s degree in mental health counseling from Campbell University, Buies Creek, N.C. Megan was a DCE in North Carolina and Virginia, as well as a mental health counselor before serving in Uganda. Megan also serves as coordinator for Member Care for the LCMS Africa region’s missionary families and maintains a part-time counseling clinic in Jinja, Uganda.


Pray for the Manteys as they serve the Lord’s people in Uganda through their roles in project management and teaching. Ask for wisdom and discernment in their work and their relationships with the national church and local community. Pray that they can share Christ’s love, mercy and joy with others. Let us give thanks for the Manteys and their work in Uganda.

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 the joyful response and generosity of God’s people over the past fiscal year, not more than 10.5 percent of any charitable contribution will be allocated to administering gifts and communicating with contributors (compared to a not-more-than ceiling of 13.5 percent the previous fiscal year). Contributions received and accepted by the LCMS are deemed to be in agreement with this statement.

Our Tax Identification Number: 43-0658188
