Missionary Weekend




download 2Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) career missionary, Rev. Shauen Trump, will visit us on the weekend of April, 6-7, 2019. Rev. Trump will preach a sermon on “The Church in Antioch” on Saturday at 5:00 p.m. and on Sunday at 9:00 a.m. Following the Sunday service, breakfast will be served. Rev. Trump will give a presentation titled “God’s Work in East Africa” and answer questions about his overseas ministry.


As the LCMS Area Director for Eastern and Southern Africa, Rev. Trump works with other LCMS personnel serving in these regions of Africa and builds relationships with the leaders of partner churches. He also implements strategies, projects, programs and grants for roughly half the African continent, from Ethiopia to South Africa. Some of the largest and smallest Lutheran churches in the world are in this area, along with literally thousands of languages and cultures.


Rev. Trump’s wife, Krista, works part-time as the Africa Region Project Coordinator, an unofficial logistics coordinator for various events. Shauen and Krista have four sons — Josiah, Elijah, Isaiah and Jeremiah — who join them on the mission field. They are based in Nairobi, Kenya. You can learn more about them at www.lcms.org/trump and www.thetrumps.org.
