Help Urgently Needed for Pastor from India to Continue Working at Tamil Redeemer Lutheran Church Print E-mail
Pastory Rev. Prince Rajamony is from Kanyakumari, India. He was ordained in the Church of South India in 1999. He came to the United States in 2007, to work on a Master of Theology at Asbury Theology Seminary, Kentucky, and then moved to Chicago to work on a Ph.D. from Lutheran School of Theology in Chicago in 2009. While studying, he also began to pastor a small Tamil-speaking congregation of the Church of South India in Elmhurst, Illinois. In 2010, Pastor Rajamony and his congregation became disillusioned with the liberal theology of the American mainline churches with which they were associated.

Their journey toward the LCMS began when Pastor Rajamony met Rev. Jacob Gaugert, a pastor of the SELC district in Chicago. Pastor Rajamony studied Lutheran doctrine with Pastor Gaugert and was confirmed on 11/27/2011. He is delighted to learn confessional Lutheran doctrine because, as he notes frequently, it is the Word of God. In 2013, Pastor Rajamony's congregation began worshiping at Redeemer Lutheran Church (English district) in Elmhurst, Illinois. Tamil Redeemer Lutheran Church was born.

Pastor Rajamony

Pastor Rajamony is in the process of becoming a pastor of the LCMS through the colloquy process, which we anticipate will be concluded in 2014. At present, he is studying the Augsburg Confession and its Apology with great joy. Leaving the Church of South India was not easy because doing so meant the loss of significant financial backing but he and his people are resolute to adhere to the Bible's teaching.

In all the time he has been in the United States, Pastor Rajamony has been separated from his wife. Part of our goal is to bring her to this country to be with her husband and assist in his gospel ministry.

Part of the urgency of this appeal arises as Pastor Rajamony completes his Ph.D. and his student visa expires this month. In order to acquire the necessary religious workers visa, we must be able to demonstrate that he has the appropriate financial backing.

This story is not about a man or an ethnic group. It is about the gospel of Jesus Christ. In addition to his group that worships in Elmhurst on Sunday afternoons, he has also started a house church that worships on Sunday mornings in Des Plaines, Illinois. The Holy Spirit is opening doors for him to tell the good news about Jesus to Hindus, Hare Krishnas, Jehovah's Witnesses and many others.

Pastor Stiegemeyer

We need your help. His mission has the goal to become financially self-supporting by January 2016. In the meantime, you can play a role in preaching salvation to Tamil speaking people in the western suburbs of Chicago with your gifts and prayers. Our goal is to raise $30,000 to sustain this ministry until they are able to support themselves. Any help you can offer will be a blessing.

For more information, feel free to contact Rev. Scott Stiegemeyer at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or (630) 815-6344.

St. Matthew Chicago EL Comedor Popular Soup Kitchen In Need of Funds Print E-mail
The soup kitchen at St. Matthew Lutheran Church in Chicago, Illinois first opened their doors 27 years ago. Originally they were only open one day a week for lunch.

The majority are Hispanic, Anglo-Eastern European, and African American.

Throughout the year, beginning with the second Tuesday and Thursday to the end of the month, they always have a need of 10 to 12 volunteers to set up and serve meals.
