The WISCONSIN EVANGELICAL LUTHERAN SYNOD (WELS), characterized as theologically conservative, is the third largest church body in America. All doctrine that is taught in WELS churches is also taught in WELS schools, such as Cross of Glory.
MARTIN LUTHER COLLEGE is the WELS pastor and teacher training college. Pastors who graduate from MLC continue their education at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon, WI. Teachers who graduate MLC have the opportunity to serve in WELS schools, such as Cross of Glory.
