The Asia missionaries of the LCMS gathered in Chiayi, Taiwan, and they received theological practice, fellowship and support.
The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod began work in Taiwan in 1951. In 1966, the China Evangelical Lutheran Church (CELC) became an LCMS sister church. Today, the LCMS supports the Concordia Middle School and Concordia English Language Academy by providing GEO missionaries. They serve as English and Bible teachers. They not only server alongside local national teachers, they also lead chapel services, Bible studies, fellowship groups, and outreach events. Additionally, two LCMS career missionaries serve as professors at China Lutheran Seminary. The LCMS Asia regional office is located in Chiayi, Taiwan. It serves as a center of operations as well as a theological training center.
