WELS Connection Video Series

WELS Connection Video Series

The WELS Connection video series has transported viewers around the country—and the world—in an ongoing effort to keep our Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS) congregations connected. Video has the special ability to bring the sights and sounds of our Lord’s work directly into our congregations. WELS Connection feature stories give viewers a first-hand look at nearly every aspect of our church’s mission and ministry—from home and world missions to youth ministry and ministerial education. Plus, the program reports on the work taking place within individual congregations across the country. It’s a “news you can use” approach—designed to communicate good ideas that other congregations and individuals might want to consider.

You are invited to view recent episodes by playing the video viewers shown below.

» WELS Connection - June 2019


The God-given mission of the church is to seek the lost. Knowing that, we rightly dedicate much effort and resources to reaching the unchurched and those who have never known their Savior. But that same zeal for missions should lead us also to recognize that we have a ripe mission field right in our own congregations, among family, friends, and neighbors who once worshiped with us but have now strayed.
