The Church Worker Update (CWU) and the Commissioned Minister Information Form (CMIF)
The Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod maintains a searchable database of all Commissioned Ministers. It is the responsibility of each Commissioned Minister to keep their information updated. Updates are made on the Church Worker Update (CWU) system. UPDATE CWU
Church Worker Update
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 replaced the Lutheran Educator Information Form (LEIF) and now includes greater functionality and is tailored to all classifications of Commissioned Ministers. Link to CMIF Search. Please contact the District office for search access.
