Deaconess Caitlin Worden

Serving the Lord in Peru



Deaconess Caitlin Worden serves the Lord through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) as a deaconess missionary in Lima, Peru. She teaches Christian education in the mercy houses and churches there. She works with other missionaries to raise up Peruvian leaders in their churches who are focused on mercy and understand the connection between mercy and the Word and Sacrament ministry of the church. Caitlin also supports the women of the Lutheran Church in Peru by providing emotional and spiritual care to them and connecting them to the church.

Caitlin’s hometown is Watervliet, Mich., and she is a member of Salem Lutheran Church, Coloma, Mich. She received a bachelor’s degree in social work and sociology from Central Michigan University, Mt. Pleasant, and holds a license in social work in the state of Missouri. She also received a master’s in theology degree with a deaconess certification from Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne. Caitlin enjoys reading, baking and spending time with her husband Jeancarlos and their friends.


Pray for Caitlin as she serves in Peru. She writes, “Please pray that the Lord fills me with His joy that the community of Lima may know His love and mercy as it shines through my presence. Remember the families and the children of the Castillo Fuerte mercy house, praying for their growth and well-being. Finally, pray for the unity and strength of the mission team in Peru that together we may serve the people of Lima and bring them the hope of the Gospel.” Pray also for Jeancarlos and Caitlin as they begin their married life together bonded in the love of Christ. Let us give thanks for Caitlin’s service to God’s children in Peru.
