Rev. P.A. Richard-Wokoma

Serving in Africa



Rev. P.A. Richard-Wokoma serves through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) as a theological educator in Africa. He also preaches and presents workshops to congregations and villages throughout Africa.

Rev. Richard-Wokoma was born in Africa. He graduated from Schiller International University, London, in 1985 with a bachelor’s degree in international relations, and in 1986 with a master’s degree in international law. He then attended New York University and started on a doctoral degree from there. During this time, he decided to attend Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, where he received his Master of Divinity in 1997. During his seminary vicarage, he studied at Drew Theological School at Drew University, Madison, N.J., and received his Master of Sacred Theology degree focused on patristic and early Christian liturgies.

Once finished at seminary, Rev. Richard-Wokoma returned to Africa to translate the Book of Concord into his native language, Kalabari. He also preached in local African congregations and conducted Bible studies and led devotions. In 2001, he received a call from the LCMS Texas District to serve in the Houston area. While in Texas, he served as director of the LINC Bible Institute and traveled to Africa several times to teach seminarians and pastors. In Sept. 2013, he accepted a call to be a theological educator in Africa. Since this time, he has been teaching and preaching at different congregations each week.


Pray for Rev. Richard-Wokoma as he serves in Africa. Pray he is protected, not only as he teaches, but also as he travels around Africa preaching and ministering to the villagers and congregations. Pray for his students and their families as they sacrifice to attend his classes. Pray their hearts and minds are open to what Rev. Richard-Wokoma teaches them. Pray that individuals and congregations here in the United States come alongside Rev. Richard-Wokoma to support him financially and prayerfully so that he may continue teaching and serving in Africa. Let us give thanks Rev. Richard-Wokoma is serving 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 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.
