Alliance Missionary Lucas Elberhardt Nunes

Account ID:  ALA007

Rev. Lucas Elberhardt Nunes is a testament to the generational nature of church planting efforts by the LCMS Office of International Mission. A native of Joinville, Brazil, Pastor Lucas’ Lutheran heritage is the product of church planting efforts of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Brazil (IELB).  The IELB is the result of LCMS mission work, which began in Brazil back in 1900. Thanks be to God, the IELB has grown into the largest Lutheran church body on the South American continent. 

Upon completing his theological studies at the Lutheran University of Brazil, Elberhardt was ordained into the Holy Ministry and accepted his first call. Thus, in March 2021, he and his new bride, Agatha, set out on their missionary journey to the Dominican Republic. There Pastor Lucas serves as an alliance missionary in the capital of Santo Domingo. His youthful energy is valuable as he shepherds a mission congregation, makes home visits, and builds relationships in the local community through numerous outreach activities.

Both Lucas and Agatha are accomplished musicians. Lucas plays the flute, Agatha the piano. Agatha brings her musical abilities to the community, providing lessons to local youth. In addition, she and Lucas enjoy glorifying God with their musical gifts in the Divine Service and helping raise up future church musicians.
