The mission of the church has always been the faithful preservation of the means of grace to edify the church and to proclaim the Gospel to the world. Our work centers on people, speaking with them, preaching to them, teaching them, and having mercy for them. We invite you to partner with us in this work. Click on a project that interests you.

Project: Alliance Missionary Obot Ite

Pastor Obot Ite has served for over eleven years in Kingston
Jamaica. Pastor Ite is a third generation Lutheran from our
partner church in Nigeria. LCMS began church planting in
Nigeria in 1936. Ite, himself, grew up with an LCMS missionary
as his pastor. Now, he has come across the sea with his wife,
Abas, and little daughter, Goodness, to the Caribbean to bring the
precious Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the Jamaican people.

Project: Dominican Republic Mission

The mission in the Dominican Republic is 11 years old.
Five missions have been planted in Santo Domingo
and Santiago which are the two largest cities. Two
Lutheran schools are functioning alongside churches.
A seminary is being established in order to raise up a
new generation of Dominicans who might serve their
church as pastors and deaconesses.

Project: Deaconess Formation

Our diaconal focus aims to prepare women to head mercy
efforts vocationally in the congregation and also be in front
of our christian institutions whether they be schools,
orphanages. The program itself consists of offering three
years of courses offered intensively to Lutheran women in
Venezuela, Panama, Guatemala, Mexico and the Dominican Republic.

Project: Chile Mission

In the past 4 years the Chilean church has almost doubled in
size from 5 churches to 9. A new church plant in Santiago is
currently building a sanctuary and working towards putting
a school for people with disabilities on the same property.
Santiago itself is a city of over 6 million people, and multiple
other opportunities exist for planting even more churches
there. More pastors are needed.

Project: Cayman Islands Mission

The work of showing Christ’s mercy, spreading the Gospel and planting churches in the Cayman Islands dates to the early 2000s for the LCMS. As of the summer of 2019, the congregation established on Grand Cayman island, Safe Harbour Lutheran Church, is being served by supply missionary pastors. Plans are underway to return a permanent missionary presence to the Caymans.

Project: Mercy House: Castillo Fuerte

Having been begun by previous missionaries to address the
economic, educational and especially spiritual needs of the most
needy in Lima, Castillo Fuerte is dedicated to aiding the
communities around our mission sites in Word and deed while
preaching the Good News of Salvation that Christ has so freely given us.

Project: Belize Mission

The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod has had presence in Belize since 2002 when short term teams blessed a small fishing village on the Placencia peninsula in Southern Belize. The Belize Mission Society formed around these short term teams and continued to serve this diverse area through school scholarships, Bible schools, nutrition programs and mercy outreach. In response to requests from the Belize Mission Society, LCMS missionaries established a permanent presence in the country in June 2016, first working with contacts and relationships established by the Belize Mission Society.

As Provost he oversees the educational affairs and activities of the institution for residential pastoral formation. In partnership with our sister seminary, Concordia Theological Seminary in Ft.

Project: Alliance Missionary Sergio Maita

The Lord has blessed our young, growing Dominican Republic
Lutheran Mission (DRLM) with three congregations in the Santiago area,
the country’s second largest city. In the past, the mission has had to
juggle a schedule of often-traveling missionaries and guest pastors to
lead Word and Sacrament ministry. We did not have a pastor dedicated
to nurture these congregations through the preaching of the Gospel to an
ever expanding circle of people.

Project: Good Shepherd Lutheran Homes

In the last 10 years HLBP has worked in three government wards,
where intervention through visitation, staff training, working with
leadership and advocating has led to two of these wards of 300
individuals being significantly changed.
