Growth and Development
The purpose of the Growth & Development Committee is to:
- Engage groups so they grow in faith and in relationships as sisters in Christ.
- Engage all LCMS church workers and build relationships as we partner in spreading the Gospel.
- Encourage participation in LWML events and activities, involving women and church workers, and spreading awareness of LWML missions and service.
- Equip groups by providing resources that connect women with the mission and ministry of the LWML.
- Enjoy the benefits of Serving the Lord with Gladness!
The Lutheran Women’s Missionary League has a 75-year history and part of that history is the LWML Pledge which reminds us of our reasons for being in mission and our pledge of commitment to our Lord. Use this responsive reading to reaffirm your groups’ commitment.

Even very young women know LWML is not a secret club! Check out what these two young women have to say at their own tea party.
Women in Mission University (WMU) is a tool to educate all people about the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League. 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.
