Andrew and Noel Schaff,
Serving the Lord in Taiwan


Andrew and Noel SchaffAndrew and Noel Schaff serve the Lord through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) as GEO (globally engaged in outreach) missionaries in Taiwan. They have served as English-as-a-Foreign-Language (EFL) teachers and Bible teachers at Concordia Middle School in the city of Chia Yi for 10 years. They are both involved in relational building ministry through the school and the community.


In addition, the Schaffs are involved in ministry programs at Salvation Lutheran Church, Chia Yi. Andrew serves as an elder and both serve as teachers for a Friday night English Bible study program at the church.


Andrew was born in Charles City, Iowa, and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in 2002 from Concordia University, Nebraska, Seward. Later in 2004, he earned his Lutheran teacher’s diploma as well. Andrew has interests in history and reptiles and enjoys reading.


Born in Fremont, Neb., Noel graduated from Concordia University, Nebraska, Seward, in 2004 with a bachelor’s degree in education and her Lutheran teacher’s diploma. She enjoys music and pets. Andrew and Noel consider both Zion Lutheran Church, Crookston, Neb., and Zion Lutheran Church, Pierce, Neb., their home congregations.


Please pray for Andrew and Noel as they continue to reach out to their students, students’ families and others who they serve and meet in Taiwan. They ask for prayers “that we would serve the Lord with gladness and competence” and that “we are effective as teachers in sharing the Gospel of Christ.” Let us give thanks to God the Schaffs are serving His people 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 12 percent of a charitable contribution may be applied to administering gifts and communicating with contributors.  Contributions received and accepted by the LCMS are deemed to be in agreement with this statement.

Our Tax Identification Number is: 43-0658188
