"For as we have many members in one body and all members have not the same office, so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another. Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us: if prophecy, let us prophesy according to our portion of faith; or ministry, let us wait on our ministering; or he that teacheth, on teaching." Romans 12: 4-7
Martin Luther High School is an educational ministry of the Luther Church-Missouri Synod.
The school is owned and supported by 18 association churches.
Area pastors are an integral component of the MLHS Ministry. All association pastors are asked to lead chapels. Their leadership role in encouraging parents and students to choose MLHS as their high school is necessary.
Members from association churches make up the Delegate Assembly and the Board Directors which oversees the operation of the school. Lay members provide the prayer support, good will, volunteerism and financial support which is the lifeblood of the ministry.
The Parent/Teacher League is also an important contributor to the success of the MLHS Ministry.

“The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work. As it is written, ‘He has distributed freely, he has given to the poor; his righteousness endures forever.’ He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness. You will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God. For the ministry of this service is not only supplying the needs of the saints but is also overflowing in many thanksgivings to God. By their approval of this service, they will glorify God because of your submission that comes from your confession of the gospel of Christ, and the generosity of your contribution for them and for all others, while they long for you and pray for you, because of the surpassing grace of God upon you. Thanks be to God for his inexpressible gift!” 2 Corinthians 9:6-15
