LCMS teaches children of all ages

The command to “train up a child in the way he should go” has always been a challenge. Young people today are constantly being bombarded by messages from their classmates, the media and our culture that often seek to lead them away from Christ.

But Lutheran education, youth ministry and campus ministry are not passing fancies for the LCMS; they are hallmarks of our work in the world. Our young people are part of the Church of today, and they are the Church’s future. That’s why enhancing education and youth ministry is one of the Synod’s six mission priorities.

This month, please join the LCMS in focusing on the importance of raising our children in the faith, whether they are toddlers or teens.



For teachers and administrators

LCMS School Ministry serves as a national voice for Lutheran schools and offers valuable resources and services for teachers and administrators, including a national school accreditation program, school strengthening and revitalization services, leadership training, tips and best practices.
