Lutheran Church in Korea (LCK)

Lutheran mission work in Korea began in 1958 with the arrival of three missionary families and a Korean national worker, Dr. Won-Yong Ji, sent by The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.

The Lutheran Church in Korea (LCK) has been a partner church of the LCMS since 1971. The LCK is also a member of the Lutheran World Federation (since 1972) and the International Lutheran Council.

LCK is the only Lutheran church body in Korea. The church operates Luther Theological University (a theological college and seminary), the Korea Bethel Series Bible study program, radio outreach through the Korea Lutheran Hour, a Christian correspondence course program and a publishing ministry.

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 differently. 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, no more than 13.5 percent of a charitable contribution may 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.
