Our Purpose

To guide girls to realize the joy of a Christ-centered life and how joyfully they can serve Him; their church; their family and their community.  LGP provides an avenue for girls  to develop leadership skills and to become service oriented, mission-minded young women.
"And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please Him in every way; bearing fruit in every good work, growing in knowledge of God."  Colossians 1:10

Lutheran Girl Pioneers (LGP) is a Christ-centered youth ministry for the girls of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Church and those in fellowship with the WELS.  It is our desire to inspire youth to realize the joy of a Christ-centered life, while building strong Christian character and values.
Although camping and building fires might come to mind when you hear of Pioneers, today Pioneers is so much more!  It is an opportunity for girls to discover and develop interests in many areas such as drama, art, photography, and leadership.
In a nutshell, Lutheran Girl Pioneers strives to help young girls grow up to be happy, confident  Christian women serving our Lord in their church, school, home and community.

Membership Info

Each girl in your caravan will become a member of an international organization when she joins Lutheran Girl Pioneers. She can look forward to enjoying many activities with her friends, but will also join a sisterhood of 7000 girls, all with one common goal: remaining "Loyal to Christ'.

Her membership will allow her, through the newsletter and district and national activities, to meet other Lutheran Girl Pioneers just like her who are having fun and learning new skills, all in Christian fellowship. The benefits she receives from our ministry go beyond the fun, fellowship, and learning that she experiences and extends to her family, church and community.

MEMBERSHIP FEES are the backbone of our not-for-profit organization as we receive no synodical dollars. The membership year for Lutheran Girl Pioneers runs from August 1 through July 31 of each year. Annual membership fees are due at the National Headquarters by October 1. You will want to remember to include not only the national fee per girl, but also your local operating expenses when you set the fee for membership in your caravan. The national membership fee helps us to maintain and strengthen the leaders in your caravan by improving our training and teaching materials and providing service and support to them.

Each caravan is unique in how it is funded. Most generally the membership required of each girl is submitted by her parents. Some caravans receive all or partial financial support from the congregation's general fund or are sponsored by an organization within the congregation such as Ladies Aid or a Men's Club. There exists no hard and fast rule as to how you finance your program.

Please email or call the National Office for more ideas on how to finance your caravan.
