Foundations of Lutheran Teaching

Supporting & Equipping School Professionals for Ministry in LCMS Schools 

The California Nevada Hawaii District is launching the Foundations of Lutheran Teaching (FLT) program in the Fall of 2024. Foundations of Lutheran Teaching seeks to support and equip school professionals for ministry in Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS) schools. The FLT program offers five asynchronous online courses, each spanning eight weeks. These courses are designed for working school professionals to accommodate their busy schedules.


Our new Foundations of Lutheran Teaching program is ready for those who would like to enroll. I encourage you to consider this option for your non-Lutheran teachers, but this can be a great option for you as an administrator or director to strengthen your understanding of what we believe as Lutherans and how you and your school can be that much more effective in sharing the faith. The deadline for Fall registration is June 7. If you have questions or want more information, please contact Joel Wahlers.

  • Each course = eight weeks.

  • Spread over one school year (Aug '24 - Jun '25).

  • Scheduled sensibly, with the flow of school year in mind.

  • Practical and applicable.

  • Utilizing the cohort model.

  • No more than twice per course online together at same time.

  • $400 per course + one time $30 application processing fee.
