The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod began supporting mission work in Chile in 1960 when the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Chile, now known as the Confessional Lutheran Church of Chile, became a partner church. The Confessional Lutheran Church of Chile (IELCHI) partners with the LCMS and other partner church bodies in Latin America to educate pastors and other mission leaders through a Mission Training School. IELCHI and The LCMS have a collaborative relationship for administering projects and working toward objectives for the region, including missionaries and volunteers supporting a mercy house for young people with disabilities.
