Mission and Ministry Work in Latin America


Rejoice with us as we spread the Gospel, plant Lutheran churches and show mercy across Latin America. Our missionaries and partner churches support 43 church plants, giving faithful witness in 14 countries.

We give thanks for the young men training to be pastors, and who will tell the Good News to this generation. Ongoing translation and distribution of theological books, journal articles and devotional materials in digital format ensure that our pastors and seminarians have high quality resources for reaching the lost, shepherding God’s people, and for continuing education.

More than 100 women across Latin America are enrolled in the deaconess program, studying God´s Word so as to be His hands of mercy alongside pastors and bringing the needy ones to His altar. Deaconess students have opportunity to serve the poor and people with disabilities in 16 different mercy houses across five countries.

Lutheran education is paramount in Latin America, reaching our young people with an incredible 155 schools in 10 countries.

Finally, we celebrate with you all, that through His Word, our dear Lord Jesus extends His church through His mighty Holy Spirit so that we might together make His Name known to those who sit in darkness.

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
