M4M Merging for Mission Information
M4M (Merging for Mission)

The WELS congregations in the West Allis area are currently evaluating and discussing our ministry impact in our community. Our congregation is participating in this process being led by WELS Congregational Services to explore the potential gospel ministry benefits that might be gained by partnering or even merging with other local WELS congregations.

Part of this process includes surveying members. The survey allows you to share your thoughts about our ministry and the possibility of partnering with other WELS congregations. All members age 13+ are encouraged to individually complete the survey by February 9.


M4M Merging for Mission Survey 

Your pastors and leaders truly want your honest input and insights as we wrestle with how to best serve Jesus Christ and carry out his mission in our area. Paper copies of the survey are available in the church entryway for those who are unable to access it online.


Joint Exploratory Committee (JEC)

Lay leaders from Good Shepherd's, Jordan, and Woodlawn Evangelical Lutheran Churches have been discussing areas where we can work together at both the church and school level to improve the delivery of ministry to our surrounding community. In order to thoroughly explore the options, the Join Exploratory Committee was formed with three members from each congregation:

Geoff Loper (Good Shepherd's)
Ryan Bogenschneider (Good Shepherd's)
Mark Kuether (Good Shepherd's)
Dennis Wieselmann (Jordan)
Michael Gittins (Jordan)
Brian Wickland (Jordan)
Jamin Wendorf (Woodlawn)
Aaron Kreel (Woodlawn)
Shawn Woller (Woodlawn)


JEC Mission Statement:

The mission of the Joint Exploratory Committee is to pursue ways to more efficiently utilize our joint resources in our church and school ministries, and to investigate where the facts lead us.
