Martin Luther College is owned and operated by the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS). Formed from an amalgamation of Dr. Martin Luther College (founded in 1884) and Northwestern College (founded in 1865), Martin Luther College opened its doors to the next generation of church workers in 1995.
Choosing a college and a career path is no easy task. With literally hundreds of choices, you may feel confused, overwhelmed, and under pressure.
While every institution has its strengths, Martin Luther College is distinctive. They are the WELS College of Ministry. They exist solely to train future pastors, teachers, and staff ministers for the public ministry in the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod.
If you are considering service to the church in one of these capacities, then Martin Luther College is the college for you.
Christian leadership is what Wisconsin Lutheran College is all about.
Leadership isn't taught at Wisconsin Lutheran. It simply comes with the territory. Professors at the college lead by example. They get to know the students on a personal level and encourage them to accomplish more in and out of the classroom than they ever imagined.
Wisconsin Lutheran is often described as a warm and friendly campus, but that doesn't mean it's easy. Students who choose to attend the college desire a strong and challenging liberal arts program. They expect to be prepared for their future because that is what the college promises when they enroll.
That's Wisconsin Lutheran College's mission, after all; producing well prepared Christian leaders who understand the importance of serving others as they lead.

THE LUTHERAN CEILI ORCHESTRA was formed at St. Marcus Lutheran Church in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Mark Jeske has been the iconic pastor there for over 20 years. A purveyor of Irish music (he plays the bozouki and acoustic guitar), he founded the group in the early 1990s. The Lutheran Ceili Orchestra traditionally assembled annually for an all-Irish service there every March, around St. Patrick's Sunday. This special service was meant from the beginning to encourage awareness of the history of the Christian faith in ancient Ireland, as well as introduce the rich Celtic tradition of fantastic hymns and riveting music. I joined the group while attending Wisconsin Lutheran College in 2000 and was totally inspired by the concept. Over the next few years, I met many other Celtic-style musicians in other Lutheran Churches in the area, notably Gloria Schroeder, a fantastic fiddler from Faith Lutheran Church in Fond du Lac. I called her up one December to play a tune or two at Faith during their Christmas Candlelight Service. It was meant to be a one-time thing, but instead we were surprised by a strong, positive response. I started thinking that maybe this would be something that other churches would appreciate as well. So a few of THE LUTHERAN CEILI ORCHESTRA's core members started touring around to other churches during the year to spread our unique blend of Lutheran Hymns with traditional Celtic Tunes.
