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.
