About the LEAP Alliance
Since early in 2011, representatives of twenty-three Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod churches/schools in the Great Lakes Bay Region of Michigan have collaborated on strategic planning and action – the Sustainable Lutheran Schools Project, seeking to affirm, support, and enhance Christian educational ministries in our churches and schools. The structure, planning, and actions have been known as the Lutheran Education Advancement Plan, with a vision statement that has been and remains: Advance Lutheran Education for Future Generations Across the Great Lakes Bay Region. From January of 2013 through December of 2015, planning and action occurred under leadership from the “LEAP Implementation Team,” and further planning and action came through many task forces. In December of 2015, following study and development, the LEAP Strategic Plan became the LEAP Alliance, and the LEAP Implementation Team became the LEAP Alliance Board of Participants.
To build and encourage successful collaboration among all congregations and to ensure excellent and financially stable pre-kindergarten to high school Lutheran schools.
LEAP Board of Participants
The LEAP Board of Participants consists of 24 members and meets once a month. They collaborate among themselves and in sub-committees to meet goals set by the strategic plan.
