Lutherans in Africa


The adage if you give a man a fish you feed him for a day, but if you teach him to fish you feed him for life is never more apt than with the mission of Lutherans in Africa (LIA). By training pastors, evangelists, and church workers, we are teaching not merely this generation, but the ones to come. In Africa, the lack of resources available for education, coupled with traditional beliefs and practices, leads to misunderstandings of the Living Word. From the congregational level to the national church body, an overwhelming need exists for basic doctrinal teaching for Lutheran pastors, evangelists, and deaconesses. Currently working in 20 countries, LIA addresses this issue by not only teaching confessional Lutheran doctrine, but by training African pastors to be the teachers in their own communities.
