Kazakhstan

  •  Country Summary
  • Since 1991, communist repression of religion in Kazakhstan under the Soviet Union has given way to greater religious tolerance. In 1993, the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod began work in Kazakhstan and has since established the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Kazakhstan.

    In 1995, the LCMS began support of ELC mercy work with a grant that provided health services for those living in a fishing village. Through these kinds of relationships, built from LCMS projects, LWML grants and partnerships with other LCMS ministries, many doors have been opened to witness to the Lord’s great love through acts of mercy.

    Currently, LCMS support of the ELC includes:

    • New Ministry Starts
    • Conference and Worship Facilities
    • Handicap Institutional Reform
    • Christian Resource Materials (LCMS provides expertise and funding for the translation, printing and distribution of Lutheran materials in English, Russian and Kazakh)
    • Support of LCMS Personnel

    Other LCMS partners in Kazakhstan have included: Bethesda Lutheran Communities, Concordia Mission Society, Lutheran Heritage Foundation, Lutheran Hour Ministries, LWML, MOST Ministries, and Orphan Grain Train.

    The ELC is presently comprised of six congregations, seven ordained pastors, numerous small groups and various individual men and women who are receiving training in Lutheran doctrine and worship.

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 13.5 percent of a charitable contribution may be allocated 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: 43-0658188
