Rev. Dr. Edward and Monica Naumann

Serving the Lord in Eurasia


The Rev. Dr. Edward and Monica Naumann serve the Lord through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) in the Eurasia region. In his role as a theological educator, Edward works with local church leaders to train and form new pastors, to provide opportunities for ongoing theological education and to produce Christian educational publications. Through the relationships formed, Edward and Monica share the Gospel with the people in the communities in which they serve and live.

Edward was born in Bellshill, Scotland, and grew up in Middlesex, England. He received a master’s degree in Classics from The University of Edinburgh, Scotland. He received his Master of Divinity from Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, Ind. He also earned a master’s degree and a doctorate of philosophy degree in Greek and Latin from The Catholic University of America, Washington, D.C. Before serving in Eurasia, Edward served as an assistant pastor at Redeemer Lutheran Church, Oakmont, Pa. (2013–2015).

Monica is a native of Milwaukee, Wis. She received a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Valparaiso University, Valparaiso, Ind., Eurasia and a master’s degree in nursing from The Catholic University of America, Washington, D.C. Before serving in Eurasia, Monica was a Family Nurse Practitioner (2008–2015). Her hobbies include quilting, sewing, gardening and cooking. Edward and Monica have seven children — Martin, William, Charles, Robert, Emily, Alfred and Theresa — who join them on the mission field.


Pray for the Naumanns as they live and work in the Eurasia region and continue to learn the new culture and language. Pray for God’s provision of a good education for their children. Pray that the Word of God bears abundant fruit as Edward proclaims it through his preaching, teaching and writing. Let us give thanks to God that this family is serving His children in this part of the world.

The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod Inc., including Mission Central (in Mapleton, Iowa), is an IRS registered 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity.

A contribution designated (restricted) for a specific purpose when accepted, will be used only to fund expenses related to that purpose. Occasionally, we may receive more in contributions for a particular purpose than can be wisely applied to it in the foreseeable future or the purpose may cease to be feasible. In these situations, the LCMS will make reasonable attempts to contact contributors to apply their contribution differently. If a contributor cannot be contacted, the LCMS will use the gift to meet a similar pressing need that most closely matches the contributor's original intent. Consistent with Synod Board policy, no more than 13.5 percent of a charitable contribution may be allocated to administering gifts and communicating with contributors. Contributions received and accepted by the LCMS are deemed to be in agreement with this statement.
