Reminder to Review your LCMS Church Worker Information Annually

Published on July 26th, 2019

This is a friendly reminder that the time of year has come to log into the church worker update site at to review and update your information for the LCMS Locator and the next edition of The Lutheran Annual. The church worker update site is also where you update your Commissioned Minister Information Form (CMIF). Your CMIF information is used by LCMS districts to help connect Commissioned Ministers with open positions throughout the Synod.

Even if you have no changes to make right now, you are encouraged to log in to make sure you can access the site for future updates. The site is accessible 24 hours a day all year-round.

Please note that every night the information entered in the church worker update site is refreshed, and any changes that are not saved using the submit button will be lost. For this reason, even if you are not finished updating your record, please submit any changes you make before exiting/logging out. You can log back in at any time to complete additional changes.

If you have misplaced your personal login information, please contact our office at Include your full name and address, and someone will get back to you within two business days.

Address are always updated when you make changes.   CMIFs of active & candiate workers are not released to the searchable database unless the Ministry Philosophy section is current & complete and at least two references are provided.
