A Hmong Mission Board Administers the functions and operations of The Hmong Lutheran Mission of Eau Claire. The board represents each of the five Eau Claire/Altoona LCMS congregations.
A Recent History of LCMS Hmong Mission Work in Eau Claire Rev. Yia Vang began his mission work in Eau Claire to the Hmong in 1991 when he served as a vicar at Epiphany Lutheran. He is now serving at Hope Lutheran, Milwaukee, as well as Missionary-at-Large to the Hmong in the South Wisconsin District of the LCMS. A renewed outreach has been underway sine the fall of 1999. A Hmong Mission Task Force was formed from the representatives from the congregations in the Eau Claire area.
In the summer of 2007 we added a part-time Mission Developer, Rev. Joe Schultz (ret.). He serves the mission by helping raise visibility and to seek funding for the mission.
As of September 2016, Pastor Chou Vang was called to the Hmong Lutheran Mission of Eau Claire as pastor/missionary, and recently as of July 2017 as part-time pastor for St. Matthew. Pastor Chou Vang is married to his lovely wife, Sadie, for over 10 years. Pastor Chou Vang is a recent graduate from Concordia Seminary St. Louis, MO, with a Master of Divinity, and hopes to bring the gospel into the Hmong community and teach them the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit through Christ Jesus.
The Hmong Lutheran Mission of Eau Claire continues to reach out to the area with Hmong language worship services on Sundays, Bible studies, Hmong Vacation Bible School each summer, visitation to the Hmong community, and a radio ministry on WHEM 91.3 FM.
This mission outreach continues by God's grace through the support of the North Wisconsin District and area churches of the LCMS. If you want more information on this Hmong mission work, please call us at 715-834-4028 or contact Pastor Chou via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
