Project ID: AM0002-62052
There is a need for trained Lutheran pastors to reach the lost throughout Asia with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This project provides scholarships for pastoral candidates to study at Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) partner seminaries and assists in the operating costs of these seminaries. In Asia, seven church bodies in different countries partner with the LCMS through eight seminaries to provide theological education for future pastors. In many cases, these students are from the countryside and attend seminaries far from their homes, with the intent of returning to share the Gospel with those in their remote areas.
The cost of educating a seminarian for one year in Papua New Guinea, for example, costs around $1,200. This is an extraordinary amount for students to raise. Seminaries typically have the capacity to add new students to their campuses and classes, but budget limitations are an obstacle to growth. It is important that the seminaries train these future pastors and leaders of the Lutheran church in Biblical truths and sound doctrine. Supporting scholarships and seminaries in Asia builds a foundation upon which the churches of Asia may continue to grow for generations to come.
