Rev. Dr. David and Jennifer Preus

Serving the Lord in Romania


Bio

The Rev. Dr. David and Jennifer Preus serve the Lord through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) in Eurasia, based in Romania. In this role, David serves as a professor with the Livonian Lutheran Project, where he provides theological education to future pastors of the Eurasia region.

He also serves as an assistant pastor, recruiter and mentor to new and upcoming pastors in the lower Balkan and Mediterranean subregion. In this capacity, David helps to establish a network of communication and strengthen the brotherhood among pastors of the region, including in Brasov and Bucharest, Romania; Sofia, Bulgari; Salonica (Thessaloniki), Greece; Padua and Rome, Italy; Spain; and Portugal.

David was born in Fort Wayne, Ind. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Bethany Lutheran College, Mankato, Minn. He received his Master of Divinity from Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, and his Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree from Concordia Seminary, St. Louis. Before taking a call to the mission field, David served as a pastor at Mount Olive Lutheran Church, Billings, Mont. (2011–2015).

Jennifer was born in Lake Forest, Ill. She earned a bachelor’s degree from Bethany Lutheran College, Mankato, Minn., as well. In addition, she received a master’s degree from Minnesota State University, Mankato. David and Jennifer have eight beautiful children — Hans, Rebekah, Rolf, Lena, Søren, Leif, Andreas and Lars — who are with them on the mission field.

Prayers

Pray for the Preus family as they serve in Eurasia. Pray also for the church in Romania and the pastors across Eurasia. Ask God to give His wisdom to the LCMS missionary team in this region as they seek to share the Gospel with and minister to the local people. Ask God to guide them as they network and centralize mission efforts across the region. Pray that the hearts of people here in the United States would be moved to pray for and financially support the Preuses so they can be a part of this mission work. Give thanks to God that the Preus family 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 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.
