With Latin American Seminaries at their fullest residential capacity, and with a burgeoning deaconess program taking off in the region, an additional seminary and mercy training center in Latin America was identified by Regional LCMS leadership as a critical need.

Project: Venezuela Mission

The Venezuelan Lutheran Church faces many challenges due to that country’s continued socio-political crisis.

Project: VDMA-Translation Team

The project, named VDMA, or Verbum Domini Manet in Aeternum (Latin for “ The Word of the Lord Endures Forever, Isaiah 40:8,” and a classic reformation motto) has provided pastors in Latin America with more than a dozen core theological books available in Spanish with plans to translate five more per year over the next three years
to eventually total 25 titles.
