Serving Teachers Everywhere

WELS teachers today have opportunities for professional growth that previous WELS teachers did not. At one time, many WELS teachers longed for a degree program where everything they learned applied directly to what they did. They wanted to learn from and with other WELS teachers who understood their ministry. But until recently, the thought of such a learning community of WELS teachers seemed unattainable.

Today, teachers are only a few mouse clicks away from gathering with like-minded educators around common issues. Modern technology enables MLC to provide such experiences to an ever-growing number of WELS teachers. Through MLC’s master’s program, WELS teachers in 15 states and 1 foreign country are growing professionally - together.

MLC is dedicated to developing affordable ways teachers can grow professionally no matter where God places them. Our master’s students can continue their program even if they accept God’s call to another ministry setting. Thanks to God’s gift of technology, MLC instructors and WELS teachers in MLC’s master’s degree program form a learning community that supports, encourages, and builds each other up.
