Dear Lucy Leader … Stepping up from Local Leadership

Dear Lucy Leader,

I love serving with my local LWML group, but I feel that I would now like to step up to be a part of the bigger picture. What are the requirements to be on the District Executive Committee?

Ready to Serve Rita

Dear Ready to Serve Rita,

LWML is indeed the leading group for LCMS women to be involved in ministry, Godly inspiration, and service. Being active on the local level is indeed a blessing. And you are right – there is more – so much more. Thank you for your interest in serving on the next level. Serving on the zone level is a great blessing and opportunity to learn the bigger picture before advancing to the district level.  

You can find many officer guidelines at

If you feel that God is leading you to serve in one of these positions, your next step would be to talk with your zone president. You can contact your district president to learn your zone president's name and contact information. Go to Click on the “Contact the LWML Districts” tab. Your zone president will be able to give you more specific information on your zone Executive Committee and let you know what positions may soon be open.

May God bless you as you serve Him in whatever capacity He leads you to serve!

Lucy Leader
