Rev. Ted Krey

As part of the ongoing reorganization in The Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod (LCMS), Rev. Ted Krey, a pastor of Lutheran Church–Canada (LCC) currently serving with LCMS World Missions in the Dominican Republic, will become the Regional Director for Latin America and the Caribbean, January 1, 2011. He succeeds Rev. Dr. Jorge Groh, who also served in LCC before accepting a call to the LCMS.

Pastor Krey, currently seconded to the LCMS, will continue his ministry in the Dominican Republic in addition to his new duties. In a letter to area church leaders announcing the appointment, Dr. Albert Collver, assistant to LCMS president Rev. Matthew Harrison noted Rev. Krey’s experience in Venezuela and the Dominican Republic made him “distinctly suited for leading the church’s work in Central and South America, particularly identifying new mission fields, developing new churches and training church leaders.”

Lutheran Church–Canada and the LCMS are currently discussing ways in which the two church bodies can work together in Honduras.

Actions of the LCMS Convention in July 2010 created a streamlined structure for the church body which impact the International Center in St. Louis and other areas of ministry around the world.
