Slovakia

  •  Country Summary
  • After 40 years of communist oppression, there is now religious freedom for all Slovaks. This freedom is provided for in the constitution and is being respected by the government. Lutherans comprise the second-largest Christian group in Slovakia.

    The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod began work in Slovakia in 1991. LCMS GEO (long-term) missionaries have shared the Gospel in church-related schools and small-group Bible studies; they have used printed materials, radio and television ministry to reach the lost in Slovakia; and they have provided theological materials for Sunday schools and leadership training. Outreach projects have also touched children with disabilities and the Roma (Gypsy) population.

    The LCMS began work in Slovakia in 1993, remodeling a center for conferences and youth retreats, and providing food service for the poor.

    The Evangelical Church of the Augsburg Confession in Slovakia currently reports a baptized membership of 329,117 in 602 congregations and preaching stations, and it has a national staff of 302 ordained pastors and 171 teachers. The church operates nine schools and the Evanjelicka Bohoslovecka Fakulta Seminary.

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
