Teaching Opportunities

School administrators who are looking for a teacher contact the district to receive search rights on the Lutheran School Portal. Click here to download the procedures. Lutheran school teachers need to have an updated LEIF on the Lutheran School Portal in order for their name to come up on searches. If you are not presently teaching in a Lutheran school with access to the Lutheran School Portal but are interested in teaching in a Missouri District school you may send your resume and list of references to Alan Freeman, Missouri District Director of Lutheran Schools.

GENESIS: Congregations which are considering starting a Lutheran elementary or secondary school can now receive help from Project Genesis. The Project Genesis was established to help congregations and communities to explore opportunities to start Lutheran elementary and secondary schools. The Department of School Ministry of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod has received a generous grant to provide consultants, feasibility studies, and assistance in initial organizational planning for new Lutheran elementary and secondary schools. For further information and/or application forms, please contact the Missouri District Director of Lutheran Schools, Alan Freeman, at (314) 317-4567 or go to GENESIS Web site.
