Project: Mexico Mission

Project ID:  MX0001-65707

In 1968, the Lutheran Synod of Mexico (LSM) entered altar and pulpit fellowship with the LCMS; the relationship has only strengthened, particularly since 2013. 

Mexico City’s Martin Luther Institute works with North American missionaries and Concordia the Reformer Seminary in the Dominican Republic to form pastors and deaconesses. The Mexican pastorate, which previously numbered three men, has more than tripled since the opening of the Dominican seminary, and more men are in the pastoral formation pipeline. As a result, the Lutheran Synod of Mexico is now focused on church revitalization and planting new congregations. 

A disaster response grant widened the scope of LCMS involvement in Mexico following a major earthquake; subsequent grants have further aided the Church in holistically caring for members. 

Involvement from US partners is crucial, given the number of congregations and connections in the border region and a constant exchange of ideas, and resources. The rollout of the new Lutheran hymnal in Spanish in 2022 is one of those excellent shared resources. Thanks be to God for past, present, and future growth!

Mexico’s proximity to – and shared border with – the United States positions it uniquely. Involvement from US partners is crucial, given countless connections in the borderland region and a constant exchange of people, ideas, and resources. Thanks be to God for past, present, and future growth!
