Dear Committee Member Want to Bea,

The first and most important qualification is to love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind (Matthew 22:37). The next important qualification is to be passionate about LWML and its mission.

Active and energetic committees are necessary for LWML to function at its best. Committee members who are enthusiastic, productive and use their talents and energies to fulfill the purpose of the committee are essential to the LWML.

Cooperation among committee members is important in ensuring that the committee accomplishes its goals. Communication is vital.

More is accomplished when members work on assignments between meetings. Being part of a committee that works together to serve the Lord is a rewarding experience.

There are committees on every level and in all ministry areas of LWML. Look for the committee that best matches your passion and skill set. To find out about committees in your local group or zone, contact the president at that level. To learn about committees in your district, check your district LWML website and look for the bylaws.

As a committee member, you play an important role in the success of the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League’s mission. Consciously seeking the Holy Spirit’s guidance — contributing the specialness that is you — actively fulfilling your committee’s purpose — enriching and enabling each other through mutual accomplishment — that’s how God’s people serve Him in love!

God’s blessings to you as you serve Him!

Lucy Leader
