Meet our Staff

Bethany Lutheran Preschool is a member of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS). We are a world-wide church body with over a 150 years of ministry experience.  We're a Christ-centered, Bible-believing church body that operates the 4th largest parochial school system in the nation. 

This system includes 409 early childhood ministries, 318 Lutheran elementary schools, and 23 area Lutheran high schools. Right here in Saginaw, the WELS maintains an award-winning academy for high school students, Michigan Lutheran Seminary. Obviously we take to heart the words of Jesus: “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these" (Matthew 19:14).

Bethany Lutheran has high ministerial standards, and therefore relies solely on teachers and pastors who've been trained in the WELS ministerial-training system. The Called Workers who serve the children of our preschool are not only career professionals, but have a Calling to serve our Savior Jesus by teaching and caring for souls. We invite you to learn more about the WELS' unique ministerial training system...
