Lutheran Girl Pioneers (LGP) is a Christ-centered youth ministry for the girls of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Church and those in fellowship with the WELS.  It is our desire to inspire youth to realize the joy of a Christ-centered life, while building strong Christian character and values.
Although camping and building fires might come to mind when you hear of Pioneers, today Pioneers is so much more!  It is an opportunity for girls to discover and develop interests in many areas such as drama, art, photography, and leadership.
In a nutshell, Lutheran Girl Pioneers strives to help young girls grow up to be happy, confident  Christian women serving our Lord in their church, school, home and community.
