Cuba

  •  Country Summary
  • The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod began mission work in Cuba (Isle of Pines) in 1911. In 1992, the constitution declared Cuba “secular,” but discrimination against Christians is illegal. In 1993, the LCMS restarted work in Cuba.

    The LCMS began mercy work in Cuba in 2001, supporting efforts to provide material goods to families affected by flooding. Since then, it has also provided the church with funds for hurricane relief efforts.

    Today, the LCMS continues to support the Lutheran church in Cuba with theological materials for Cuban leaders and by funding the travel expenses of short-term theological educators.

     

  •  Missionaries
  • The LCMS continues to support the Lutheran church in Cuba by sending theological education materials to Cuban leaders. Examples of such resources are Spanish Bibles and the small catechism with explanation, which are used to teach believers and in outreach to unbelievers in congregations’ communities. Support for mission projects in Cuba also provides for the travel expenses of short-term theological educators who visit to teach courses for laypeople and pastors. Advanced training for pastors and other church workers is not always readily available, and this is a vital way of supporting the church in Cuba and encouraging the believers there by reminding them that they are not alone in their faith. Pray for the continual growth of the Lutheran Church of Cuba and give thanks that God’s Word has been placed in the hands of many Cuban people.

    Your support allows the LCMS to continue mission outreach in this country. If more funds than necessary are received towards projects in this country, the additional funds will be used to support ministry in the same region. If you would like more specific information about these projects and ministry in this country or region, please contact us at 888-THE-LCMS (888-843-5267) or infocenter@lcms.org.
