Information for Pastors
Whether you are new to the ministry or new to the Lutheran Women's Missionary League (LWML), it is my privilege as the President of the LWML to welcome you on behalf of the members of this organization, the official women's auxiliary of the LCMS. For over 70 years, the LWML has focused on affirming each woman's relationship with Christ, encouraging and equipping women to live their Christian lives in active mission ministries and to support global missions. Over $100 million has been donated for mission work through the LWML since it was founded.
Please join the women of the LWML as they share their hearts for Christ in sharing the Good News with others around the world. We praise God for you and your dedication to share His love with those around you. The LWML website is full of wonderful resources and information. Take time to explore this website and see what has already been created for YOU!
The women of the LWML are:
- praying for you;
- ready and willing to assist you as you settle into your congregation;
- available to answer any questions you may have about the LWML;
- able to provide ready-to-use Bible studies and devotions that have been through the LCMS doctrinal review process; and
- prepared to share information with you regarding the missions supported by LWML, servant events, outreach activities, and much more.
We would encourage you to read the Lutheran Woman’s Quarterly, the official publication of the LWML. It is filled with inspirational stories, information about upcoming events, Bible studies, news from the teen group Friends Into Serving Him®, Young Women, and many other things that will be useful to you in your ministry.
We pray that you will daily find renewed joy in serving our Savior and sharing His love. May God bless your ministry to His glory.

Yours in Christ,
LWML President 2011-2015

Blessing of Convention Participants
"God go with you!" are words often shared by sisters-in-Christ as they prepare to attend an LWML event. How special would it be to receive a blessing read by their pastor during a worship service as they prepare to leave? Click here to access "Blessing of Convention Participants," a new document written by LWML Pastoral Counselor Rev. John Heckmann. Your LWML sisters, as well as the congregation, will be uplifted to hear the words of guidance, renewal, and protection.
