Congo (DRC)

  •  Country Summary
  • The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod began supporting mission work in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) in 1984. The LCMS works with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Congo Manienga-Kivu Diocese, which has nearly 20,000 members served by 20 pastors and 54 evangelists, and the Evangelical Lutheran Church of East Congo, which has 10,000 members served by nine pastors.

    Currently, Lutheran congregations receive support for the theological education of their pastors by the LCMS’ support of the Lutheran Center for Theological Studies in Dapaong, Togo, which serves the French-speaking West African Lutheran church bodies of seven countries: Togo, Ivory Coast, Guinea, Benin, Burkina Faso, Congo and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

    The LCMS currently assists families displaced by conflict in eastern Congo with food, cooking supplies, blankets and clothing.

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
