In the Asia region, we work to train pastors, church leaders, and laity to share the Gospel in word and deed. We also work with partners all over Asia to plant churches, show mercy, and provide Lutheran education.
In the Kingdom of Cambodia, The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) partners with the Cambodia Lutheran Church (CLC). A growing collection of Lutheran churches, the CLC proclaims the Gospel and demonstrates mercy throughout the country. The LCMS placed missionaries in Cambodia at the request of the CLC and with the support of Lutheran Church Canada (LCC). The missionaries provide mentoring and theological education for the CLC’s leaders, pastors, deaconesses, and lay people. The LCMS also supports selected CLC programs and projects. The LCMS seeks to strengthen the already-impressive capacity of the CLC’s leaders, to help them serve people faithfully in their context.
