When a congregation or board determines they will be requesting a call list to fill a teaching position, the calling body is encouraged to follow a set of guidelines, such as who to contact to request a list, the necessary form to complete, directions for conducting a call meeting, etc. There is also a set of procedures to follow for those who receive a call. These procedures insure that the process is done in good order and that the call will be a blessing for everyone concerned.

Contact your WELS District President for teacher and staff minister call list requests.
