While every institution has its strengths, Martin Luther College is distinctive. We are the WELS* College of Ministry. We exist solely to train future pastors, teachers, and staff ministers for the public ministry in the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. If you are considering service to the church in one of these capacities, then we are the college for you. [Emphasis added.]
