Angola

  •  Country Summary
  • The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod began supporting work in Angola in 1997 in partnership with the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Brazil (IELB). In 2001, the IELB sent the Rev. Dr. Carlos Walter Winterle, president of the IELB, to Angola to teach intensive courses and to mentor a local pastor in leading the Angolan church’s Theological Education by Extension (TEE) program. Several other pastors and professors of the IELB continue to travel to Angola to train future pastors. This partnership is based in Portuguese — a common language for both the IELB and the Igreja Luterana Confessional em Angola (ILCA), or the Confessional Lutheran Church in Angola. The LCMS has provided grants for projects that support the development of sewing classes, vegetable gardens with water pumps and a health center.

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
