WELS 2021 Call Reports

Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod

Pastor, teacher, and staff minister call report

The call report details when pastors, teachers, and staff ministers change positions within WELS. The Conference of Presidents oversees and coordinates the calling process.

*CRM: “Candidatus Reverendi Ministerii.” This means that a person does not currently hold a divine call but is eligible to receive one. He is a “Candidate for the Holy Ministry.”

*Obituaries: From now on, deaths reported on the call report will only be for called workers who are actively serving at the time of their death or for those who have retired from active ministry. This reflects the current Yearbook policy set by the Conference of Presidents.
