Cuba’s ranking as the largest Caribbean island positions it firmly within the scope of Latin America & the Caribbean Region. The LCMS first established itself on the Isle of Pines, known today as the Isle of Youth, 31 miles south of the Cuban mainland, in 1911.
The LCMS supports theological projects aimed at shoring up and encouraging the existing pastorate while also seeking others who desire a theological education. A young man from Cuba is currently studying as a seminarian at Concordia the Reformer Seminary in the Dominican Republic. He is but the first of many that will be the future leaders of the church in Cuba.
Alongside the theological projects, the LCMS assists with humanitarian outreach that provides for our Cuban brothers and sisters in both body and soul and reflects Christ’s mercy to the pockets of steadfast believers in Cuba and their surrounding communities. We thank the Lord of the Harvest, who has provided opportunities to strengthen the church in Cuba and provide for His people.
