On Tuesday, July 17 the WELS Mobile app installed from the iPhone/iPad App Store, Google Play Store, or Amazon will be removed. Any users with the app installed on their devices will find that many of the features will no longer function correctly. The reason for this change is that a new WELS App is now available at This new app provides all the same functionality as the old WELS Mobile app and more. Please read all about it in a recent blog posted entitled WELS App Launches.

Call Reports

The call reports detail when pastors, teachers, and staff ministers change positions within WELS. The Conference of Presidents oversees and coordinates the calling process. Previous reports are listed below; at the bottom of this page you can also search previous reports or view the full archive.

NOTE: From now on future service changes such as retirements, resignations, positions eliminated, etc., will appear on the call report that includes the date that they are reported rather than the call report that contains the effective date of the service change.

*CRM: “Candidatus Reverendi Ministerii.” This means that a person does not currently hold a divine call but is eligible to receive one. He is a “Candidate for the Holy Ministry.”
