Cindy Pine

Serving the Lord in the Latin America and Caribbean Region



Cindy Pine serves the Lord through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) in the Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) region, based in the Dominican Republic. As the region’s project manager, Cindy reports to the business manager and the regional director as she manages several LCMS projects in this part of the world. She also works with local church partners on various initiatives.

Cindy joined the LAC mission team after six years of mission work with MOST Ministries. She has led many teams to Latin America and Africa, where they provided medical clinics, vocational training, refurbished eyeglasses, water purification units and construction assistance. She also served with the USAID Mission in Honduras. In her church in Ann Arbor, Mich., she was chairperson of the Board of Administration (facilities and personnel) and treasurer.

Cindy’s interest in the languages and cultures of Latin America comes naturally. She is fluent in Spanish as a result of lifelong study in the U.S., Central America and Mexico. Both her grandfathers had careers in this part of the world — one in Chile and the other in Mexico. Cindy earned both her bachelor’s degree in Latin American studies and her master’s degree in anthropology from George Washington University in Washington, D.C.

Cindy was raised by church musicians in Lawrence, Kan. A 40-year transplant to Michigan, she loves spending time with her three children — two in Michigan and one in Maine — and four grandchildren. She enjoys sewing, bicycling, reading, golfing and singing in the choir.


Please pray for Cindy’s work in supporting the preaching and teaching of her fellow missionaries in the Latin America and Caribbean region. Pray for her joy in spreading the message of the Gospel through her interactions with Dominicans and others, and ask God to grant her His protection on her travels.

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
