Project: Mercy Center

Luke 6:36 reads, “Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful.” Showing mercy is part of our identity as Christians. Therefore, it makes sense that Lutherans in the Latin America & Caribbean region would intentionally focus on showing mercy. The creation of the Mercy Center, an institute of Concordia the Reformer Seminary and Mercy Center in 2017, provided a launchpad for this showing of mercy across the region.
