Czech Republic

  •  Country Summary
  • Liberation from the economic repression of communism also meant the liberation of religion—especially of Christianity—for the people of the Czech Republic.

    The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod began its relationship with Lutherans in the Czech Republic in 1992, both with the Selesian Evangelical Church of the Augsburg Confession (SCAEV) and the Evangelical Church of the Augsburg Confession in the Czech Republic (ECAV CZ). In 1992, the LCMS awarded a grant to assist in the construction of a church hall in Komorni Lhotce to accommodate youth work and evangelism efforts. A year later, the LCMS started sending short-term mission teams to work with youth, do outreach and witness their faith in Jesus by building personal relationships. GEO (long-term) missionaries are also currently serving in the Czech Republic to support the ministry of Lutheran churches there by building relationships through teaching English classes and participating in various outreach ministries.

    The LCMS also supports translations of Lutheran literature to supply the Silesian Evangelical Church of the Augsburg Confession (SCAEV) with materials for its theological education programs.

    This church body has approximately 49,000 members, 20 congregations and 36 congregational extensions or preaching stations. Currently, the church is focused on extensive charitable and social rehabilitation work through the Silesian Diaconia for the elderly, abandoned and disabled.
