Rev. Charles and Deborah St-Onge,
Serving the Lord in the Latin America and the Caribbean Region


Rev. Charles and Deborah St-Onge and their childrenRev. Charles and Deborah St-Onge serve the Lord through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) in the Latin America and the Caribbean region. In his role as an area facilitator for this region, Charles helps strengthen Christ’s work in the Cayman Islands, Jamaica and Puerto Rico. He assists with theological education and evangelist and deaconess training. He also opens new fields and ministries and develops and expands existing ones. When not helping in this work, Charles serves as the mission pastor of Ascension Lutheran Church in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, working with French-, English- and Chinese-worshipping communities.

Charles was born in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. He has undergraduate and graduate degrees in engineering. He received his Master of Divinity from Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne. He also holds a Master of Theology in Science and Religion degree from South African Theological Seminary (based in Bryanston, South Africa). Charles served as a pastor in Philadelphia, Pa., and Houston, Texas. He is the author of the book “5 Things You Can Do to Appreciate Science and Love the Bible” (CPH, 2013). Charles is also a frequent guest on the Issues, Etc. radio program. 

Deborah was born in Middletown, Ohio. She has a bachelor’s degree in music education from Miami University, Oxford, Ohio, and a master’s degree in music education from the University of St. Thomas, St. Paul, Minn. Deborah has taught music and music education in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas and Indiana, preschool-aged children through adults. She is currently serving as a full-time mother and volunteering when she can.

Charles and Deborah have two daughters, Olivia and Sophia. They both attend public school in Quebec, studying in French and English and sharing the Gospel with their classmates.


Pray for the St-Onge family as they serve in the Latin America and the Caribbean region. Pray for Charles and his safety as he travels in this region and for Deborah and the girls while he is away. Pray for all missionaries, wherever they are serving, that the plans of the Evil One to frustrate Christ’s work may not discourage them, but that the Gospel would be freely preached to all people of all tribes and languages on earth. Pray for continued financial provision for the St-Onge family so they may continue to serve. Give thanks the St-Onge family is serving God’s children in this part of the world.
