Thailand

  •  Country Summary
  • The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod began work in Thailand in 1986 under the name Concordia Gospel Ministry (CGM), which supports the efforts of the local, independent Thai Lutheran church.

    An urban ministry strategy was initiated in Bangkok, and social-service programs — like a child-care center and work among child and young teen prostitutes — were started. The urban ministry at the CGM center includes teaching English for the purpose of building relationships with Thai students and professionals, through which the Gospel of Christ can be shared. The church also opened a preaching station at the CGM center.

    Current LCMS work in Thailand focuses on training and supporting the local Thai Lutheran church, the Thailand Concordia Lutheran Church (TCLC), in cooperation with the Lutheran Church—Canada. This support includes theological education, Bible study groups, one-on-one appointments, camps, seminars, special evangelistic events and Bible classes.

    In 1988, the LCMS provided mercy project support for tuition and supplies for school children. In the following years, additional mercy projects included buying computer and solar equipment, providing food for refugees, rebuilding homes damaged in an explosion, infant and mother care, providing a day-care center, rehabilitation for prostitutes, slum community ministry, disaster relief (tsunami, flood, cyclone), livelihood development and student scholarships.

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
