Darin Storkson is the regional director for our newest region, South Asia-which includes Australia, Bangladesh, East Timor, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, New Zealand, Singapore and Sri Lanka.
Darin Storkson served with LCMS World Relief and Human Care since 2005, helping to coordinate LCMS emergency relief efforts in the aftermath of the December 26, 2004 South Asia tsunami. He most recently served as LCMS World Relief and Human Care's regional director for Asia, until taking this post. Storkson resides in Jakarta, Indonesia.
The work of an LCMS regional director includes leading the development of all LCMS witness and mercy ministries and programs in the region, managing all LCMS and locally recruited personnel in the region, maintaining positive, dynamic relationships with partners and collaborating with Lutheran partners in support of new and existing mission initiatives, Lutheran evangelism and church planting.
Prior to his service with the LCMS, Storkson served as the executive director of the Bali Tourism Board, as a delegate of the International Committee of the Red Cross and as a business development consultant. While in Bali, Storkson and his long-time sending church, Resurrection Lutheran Church in Boron, Calif., had been conducting a small-scale educational and medical ministries in the remote villages of Bali. Storkson's family includes his son, Francis.
The LCMS is blessed to have Storkson and Quill join the international regional team, which includes Dr. Mike Rodewald, regional director for Africa; Rev. John Mehl, regional director for East Asia; Dr. Brent Smith, regional director for Eurasia; and Rev. Ted Krey, regional director for Latin America and the Caribbean.
The Rev. Dr. Albert B. Collver ..., 3 June 2012 [cached]
The Rev. Dr. Albert B. Collver III, LCMS director of Church Relations, and Darin Storkson, LCMS regional director for Southern Asia and Oceania, recently visited with officials from the Indonesian Lutheran Christian Church (ILCC) to di
Now with some 17,000 members, the ILCC has 90 congregations and 30 pastors, and the church has remained committed to upholding Scripture and the Lutheran Confessions, but is now looking to the LCMS for support and "the ability to become more sophisticated and learned theologically," said Storkson.
About nine months ago, the pastors of the ILCC elected a new leader, Bishop Aladin, and tasked him with implementing reforms that would strengthen the church's confessional stance. One of those tasks was discussing potential fellowship with the LCMS.
"They're taking a huge step," says Storkson.
The ILCC has a great desire, explained Storkson, to grow theologically, and the church's "pastors are in broad agreement on this point."
Storkson also recently approved an ILCC request for assistance to purchase clerical shirts and vestments for all of the ILCC pastors. The new clericals, albs and stoles will "help the Lutheran pastors to distinguish themselves from the academic gowns worn by most pastors of Reformed churches in Indonesia," noted Storkson. He also is planning an Indonesia Lutheran hymnal project within the next few years.
Leaders of the ILCC and the LCMS indicate that they look forward to continued conversation and the prospect of altar and pulpit fellowship -- a life together that is expected to strengthen both church bodies and expand the global network of confessional Lutheran churches having doctrinal agreement.
"The ILCC is a church that is basically saying, 'We want to be the confessional Lutheran church of Indonesia,'" said Storkson.
WR-HC staff consider Harrison “pastor at heart,” cite mercy work | The Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod [cached]
Darin Storkson, WR-HC regional director in Asia, referenced 2005 when, three months after the Asia tsunami, WR-HC opened its first international post in Jakarta, Indonesia. Harrison pointed WR-HC "toward a new paradigm of building internal capacity and operational capacity that we never had before," said Storkson, adding that he expects Harrison's leadership to "have a major impact on global Lutheranism." The former WR-HC executive director provides staunch support for international Lutheran partners "to implement their uniquely Lutheran ministries and to be the Lutheran churches they want to be despite pressures from other groups to be more ecumenical," Storkson said.
