Huntersville Lutheran is one of many congregations associated with an international church body called the WELS. The Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS) is a cooperating group of congregations headquartered in Waukesha, Wisconsin. Since 1858, the congregations of the WELS have been working together to do, as a whole, what individual congregations cannot. They train pastors, teachers, and other ministerial staff. They send missionaries all over the world - everywhere from Taipei, Taiwan to Huntersville, NC. They publish excellent theological and practical resources for the church. They do considerable relief work wherever there is need. Huntersville Lutheran is proud to be a member congregation of the WELS.
