Church Worker Update and
Commissioned Minister Information Form

Church Worker
Update (CWU)

The Church Worker Update (CWU) system serves as the single, centralized location for all Rostered church workers to review and update their personal and professional information. This information is then used by the LCMS Synod offices, District staff, and the Council of Presidents to help supervise and support workers in their current Call and assist them in filling current, open positions. If you are a Rostered church worker, be sure to update your information today!

Commissioned Minister
Information Form (CMIF)

The Commissioned Minister Information Form (CMIF) system takes the information entered into the Church Worker Update (CWU) system by Commissioned Ministers and gives Districts and individuals the ability to search for individuals to fill Called positions. This recently replaced the Lutheran Educator Information Form (LEIF) and now includes greater functionality and is tailored to all classifications of Commissioned Ministers.

There Are Over
Rostered Workers
Serving More Than
Districts and the World
