2021 Kansas District Pentecost Offering


Shepherds Needed:

West and Central Africa


West Africa has a pressing need for well-trained, faithful Christian pastors. YOU can help by participating in the 2021 Kansas District Pentecost Offering. This year’s offering will again support theological education in West and Central Africa, with a special focus on the new local seminary in Guinea. Exciting things are happening there, with the help of Kansas District congregations!

Every gift matters, as do prayers!

To give a gift in support of this critical work, click the red “Donate” button (top or bottom of the page), which will take you to our secure online donation page. (Choose “West Africa Partnership” from the menu.) Alternatively, if your church is holding an offering, you could contribute there, or if you’d prefer, you can mail a check with “Pentecost Offering” in the memo line to LCMS Kansas District, 1000 SW 10th Ave., Topeka, KS 66604. 

Thank you for your support!

Francophone Africa Unpacked

Rev. Gary and Steph Schulte, LCMS missionaries in West and Central Africa, provide an excellent overview of the work in the region in this video, recorded in February 2021. Use it for a Bible study, watch with a small group, or watch on your own. We’ve put together a one-page video guide (with time markers) as a companion resource.

Ordination in Guinea

In late February, three men were ordained as pastors in Guinea. The men in the last photo completed their studies at the CLET in Togo and are now serving as vicars. Thanks be to God! (We also thank Rev. Tim and Beth Heiney for sharing the photos.)
