Barbara Rebentisch

Serving the Lord in Taiwan



Barbara Rebentisch serves the Lord through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) in Taiwan, based in ChiaYi. In this role, she translates and interprets between Mandarin and English to facilitate the communication of the Gospel in this part of the world. In particular, Barb is daily and regularly involved in the ongoing work to develop faithful resources in the Chinese language, intended to serve the entire Chinese-speaking world, both at home and abroad. Her service builds relationships with the community and leaders, sharing the Gospel with them through the written and spoken Word, and helping them to do the same with their neighbors.

Barbara’s hometown is Paullina, Iowa, where she attended Zion Lutheran Church. She currently is a member of King of Kings Lutheran Church in Roseville, Minn. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree from Concordia University Nebraska, Seward. She earned her master’s degree from Doane University in Crete, Neb. Her hobbies include reading, music, walking, chatting with friends and watching crime dramas.

Over the years, Barbara has been heavily involved in ministry and service to the people of Taiwan. She helped with youth ministry, was an evangelistic social worker, worked in counseling services and taught English as a Second Language (ESL) classes in various cities throughout this country. In addition, she worked as a clinical supervisor for Lighted Path Recovery Services and as a counselor in the State of Nebraska Corrections system.


Pray for Barbara as she serves in Taiwan. Ask God to give her good health as she embarks on this journey. Pray that she has clear thinking and clear expression in all that she communicates. Ask God to generously provide for the financial aspects of her mission work so that she can accomplish all that has been set forth for her to do in Taiwan. Let us give thanks to God that Barbara 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. Contributions received and accepted by the LCMS are deemed to be in agreement with this statement.
