Deaconess Tirzah Krey, Regional Human Care Coordinator

Serving the Lord in the Latin America and Caribbean Region


Deaconess Tirzah Krey serves the Lord through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) in the Latin America and Caribbean region, based in the Dominican Republic. In her role as regional human care coordinator, Tirzah serves with regional leadership and the region’s chaplain to care and advocate for the missionaries and their families in all aspects of their physical, spiritual and emotional health. Tirzah utilizes her background as a registered nurse to work alongside pastors, deaconesses and seminary students to promote community health and complete congregation health visits. In addition, she also coordinates community health initiatives near the region’s mission plants and teaches health education alongside the church plants in the Dominican Republic.

Tirzah was born in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. Her home congregation is Messiah Lutheran Church, Seattle. She received her bachelor’s degree in nursing (B.S.N.) from the University of Windsor and her Masters of Arts in deaconess studies through Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne.


Pray for Tirzah as she serves the churches and people in the Latin America and Caribbean region. Please pray that the Lord may utilize Tirzah to serve and care for the missionaries and families in the region. Finally, pray for God’s Word to reach the ears of those who do not yet know Him. Give thanks to God for Tirzah and her faithful service as she serves God’s people throughout 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 13.5 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.
