The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod began work in Tanzania in 2002. Today, the LCMS continues to support work with a few dioceses of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Tanzania (ELCT), primarily in pastoral formation and church worker development and care, as well as walking with the Lutheran Church of East Africa (LCEA) in support for their seminary, tin roofs for congregations, and long-term partnerships between LCMS congregations and parishes of the LCEA focused on evangelism.


Meet the international team. We have more than 200 missionaries working around the globe.
