Rev. Lucas Elberhardt, a church-planting pastor in the Dominican Republic, serves a mission congregation in Santo Domingo. Pastor Lucas leads worship services, teaches Bible classes, makes home visits, and works diligently to build bridges into the community. His robust youth outreach efforts include sports camps, youth days and music lessons, all of which include a devotion or Bible lesson. In addition to parish ministry, he currently supervises the fieldwork of two seminarians.  

Pastor Lucas completed his theological studies at the Lutheran University of Brazil. In March 2021, he was called by the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Brazil (IELB) to serve as an Alliance Missionary to the Dominican Republic. 

Both Lucas and his bride, Agatha, are accomplished musicians. Lucas plays the flute, and 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. The couple is expecting their first child in February 2023.
