Evangelical Lutheran Church of Argentina
Iglesia Evangélica Luterana Argentina (IELA)

Our church began November 1905 in Aldea San Juan, mostly among Russian-German immigrants. Today the work is done in Spanish. We have two emphases: Mission work: “Christ for all” and education to recover an evangelistic church. We also do social work in many places in Argentina. We own and operate one seminary and numerous colleges that have 4,200 students.

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.

Our Tax Identification Number: 43-0658188
