Manitowoc Lutheran High School Manitowoc, WI Wednesday, August 7, 2024

The deadline for submission of your completed profile, current harvest strategy, and expected attendance number is July 25, 2024. Please submit via email to tellingthenextgeneration@wels.net

General Information

Telling the Next Generation is a ministry provided by the WELS Commission on Evangelism, the Commission on Lutheran Schools, and Early Childhood Ministry. The program serves congregations of the WELS with planning, assistance, and resources for implementation of outreach strategies utilizing their Lutheran elementary school and/or early childhood ministry.

The presenters are WELS church and school leaders who are experienced with conducting school ministries with an outreach focus. In breakout sessions, the presenters and other advisors will work with individual congregations to advise them regarding outreach plans and strategies.

What a blessing and opportunity the Lord provides in our early childhood ministries and our schools to share the gospel with children and their families. Do you sometimes wonder if there are ways to connect with those families and connect families to the Word?

Workshop Presentations

1. Committed to the Word – The gospel is the means that the Holy Spirit uses to work/grow faith in the hearts of its audience. The Word teaches us the true definition of our church/school mission and guides us in our vision for carrying it out. It’s the Word that empowers our faith and directs our lives to serve Jesus and the people he leads us to reach with the good news of his salvation.

2. Relationships – Very important for utilizing our childhood ministries for outreach are the relationships that church, and school leaders have and strive to grow with each other and with school families. They work as an organized and determined team with focus on the precious souls they are reaching for Christ.

3. Harvest Strategies – A practical guide for congregations and schools to build relationships with the school children and their families, to develop an organized program for nurturing those relationships, and to strive to lead them to instruction in the Word. It’s the Word (1st presentation) that unites and motivates people doing ministry (2nd presentation) and compels them by the love of Christ to use the gospel in strategic ways to harvest souls for the kingdom (3rd presentation). Who should attend: pastor, principal, ECM director, education and evangelism leaders, and other interested congregational leaders and members.


Experienced pastors and teachers will serve congregations to advise them in the development and implementation of strategies. Those advisors will work individually with congregations at the workshop and stay in touch with them following the workshop to answer questions, offer advice, and provide resources.
