Rev. Dr. Tom Park

Serving the Lord in Taiwan



The Rev. Dr. Tom Park serves the Lord through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) in Taiwan. As a theological educator, he teaches theology to laypeople as well as to those studying to become pastors, deaconesses and other church workers. In this role, he also is helping to start a new Lutheran seminary on the island.

Tom was born in Seoul, South Korea, and his home congregation is Jesus’ Love Korean Lutheran Church in Irvine, Calif. He holds degrees from Martin Luther College, New Ulm, Minn. (B.A.); Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary, Mequon, Wis. (M.Div.); and Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, Ind. (Ph.D. in Missiology). He previously served congregations in Indiana, Minnesota and California, as well as at Concordia University Irvine, Irvine, Calif., where he was an assistant professor. In his free time, he enjoys learning about languages and cultures, reading, watching movies and traveling.


Pray for Tom as he serves in Taiwan. Ask God to give good health to him and to his mother, who still lives in South Korea, so that Tom can carry out his responsibilities without distraction. Pray for Tom as he studies Mandarin, so he may speak fluently as he shares the Gospel. Pray also that God would open the hearts of the Taiwanese people to heed Tom’s preaching and teaching so that all might come to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Let us give thanks to God that Tom is serving His children in this part of the world.

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 (compared to a not-more-than ceiling of 10.5 percent the previous fiscal year). Contributions received and accepted by the LCMS are deemed to be in agreement with this statement.
