The Minnesota District (WELSMN) is one of the twelve Districts of the WELS (Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod). “WELS is a group of nearly 400,000 men, women, and children in nearly 1,300 congregations across the United States and Canada united by a common faith in Christ’s saving love. We are committed to a common calling—encouraging each other in our faith and sharing God’s gift of a Savior with the rest of the world.” (http://www.wels.net/about-wels)

Whether you are serving in ministry in this district, attending one of our congregations or ministries or visiting here for the first time, we invite you to join us in our walk with Jesus, the way, the truth and the life.
