Helping Organizations Participate Effectively (HOPE)



Women in Mission University (WMU) is a tool to educate all people about the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League, written and prepared by the LWML HOPE (Helping Organizations Participate Effectively) Committee. It consists of four sections that can be used individually in separate events, or all or some of the sections may be used together as a one-day event.

Using WMU is an ideal way to introduce LWML to LCMS women in your congregation, zone, or district who are not yet participating in the mission of the LWML. It’s also useful as a refresher for women who are already involved.

Each of the sections contain a PowerPoint and other helps. Visit the components from the More Info tab to the right or from the WMU page.

To download LWML PowerPoint presentations, RIGHT CLICK (or COMMAND CLICK) on the file and save to your computer.

To view saved LWML PowerPoint presentations, open in your PowerPoint program and open as READ ONLY. If you do not have PowerPoint on your computer, you can open and view by using Microsoft PowerPoint Viewer. PowerPoint Viewer is a free download from Microsoft. (PC only.)
