Abdul Kalam, 11th President of India, once said, “To succeed in your mission, you must have single-minded devotion to your goal.” Martin Luther College’s mission is to train a corps of Christian witnesses who are qualified to meet the ministry needs of the WELS. With single-minded devotion, the MLC master’s program carries out that mission.
Graduation day at MLC has always been special. On that day God’s faithfulness is celebrated because he supplies workers for the harvest. Traditionally, those gathered praise God for moving hearts to respond to his call into ministry. Beginning in 2008 with the first MS Ed graduates, the day is also a celebration of God’s ongoing blessings to his church through veteran teachers. Here are some of the reasons we praise God for MS Ed graduates.
MLC Professor Jeffrey Wiechman has been added to the graduate faculty. On May 16 he graduated from the University of Minnesota with an EdD in Educational Policy and Administration.
