Chile

  •  Country Summary
  • The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod began supporting mission work in Chile in 1960. The Evangelical Lutheran Church of Chile, now known as the Confessional Lutheran Church of Chile, became a partner church in 1960.

    The Confessional Lutheran Church of Chile (IELCHI) partners with the LCMS and other partner church bodies in Latin America to educate pastors and other mission leaders through a Mission Training School. The LCMS also helps support their urban outreach in Santiago.

    The LCMS has supported nutrition, sanitation and anti-drug education programs in Chile, and the LCMS responded to the 8.8-magnitude earthquake and ensuing tsunami that struck central Chile in February 2010.

    The Confessional Lutheran Church of Chile is a sister/partner church of the LCMS. It works closely with the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Argentina, which operates a Lutheran seminary where many Chilean pastors are trained.

    The church has more than 170 members.

     

  •  Missionaries
  • Currently, no LCMS missionaries reside in this country. To search for missionaries serving in this region in other countries, please visit missionary search database. To learn more about the LCMS global mission team, visit www.lcms.org/missionaries.

     

  •  Partner Churches
  • A partner church is a church body with whom the LCMS has full altar and pulpit fellowship. Many LCMS partner churches are also members of the International Lutheran council, a worldwide association of confessional Lutheran church bodies. Some LCMS partner churches came into existence through LCMS-supported mission efforts while others have historic roots that pre-date the LCMS or that are sourced in the mission efforts of other Lutheran church bodies.

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
