Faculty & Staff News

Mr. Matt Moeller has accepted the call he received to serve as the senior administrator and high school and junior high school principal at Illinois Lutheran Schools in Crete, IL.

We are thankful for Mr. Moeller’s 23 years of service at KML as teacher, coach, curriculum coordinator, and, most recently, as our Director of Instruction. He has been a blessing to many, and our KML ministry has been advanced through his selfless work and humble servant leadership. Please pray for Mr. Moeller, his wife, Amy, and his family as God leads them through this transition of ministry.

Join us in welcoming Mr. Dave Murphy to KML as our new Director of Operations, filling the vacancy left by Mr. Jody Hansen’s retirement. Mr. Murphy and his wife, Susan, have been blessed with three children who are past and current Chargers: Kylee (’17), Garrett (’24), and Mollie (’25). The Murphys are members of St. John’s, Lannon.



Let’s Grow Together Campaign Update

As we are coming to the end of our two-year campaign, and God has certainly blessed us, we know we aren’t finished yet. These next few months are critical as we look for additional funding to ensure a successful campaign and the funds necessary to complete the expansion. Every dollar raised and pledge received reduces the need to borrow for the project. So thank you for your generous support enabling more students to receive a Christ-centered education at KML.

For more information, visit or contact either President Jamie Luehring ( or Director of Mission Advancement Wendy Breimon (

The time is now. Let’s Grow Together!



THANK YOU for Supporting the KML Ministry!

Thank you for your generous support of the KML ministry through KML’s 2024 Golden Gala. We truly appreciate your support.

Initial estimates indicate a gross income of over $210,000. Proceeds from this event will be split with a portion going toward the Let’s Grow Together campaign and a portion to the student assistance fund, ultimately allowing more students to attend KML for a safe, quality, Christ-centered education.

Thank you once again for being a part of the KML family and helping our students. With your continued support, we can continue to carry out our mission of educating for life and for eternity.
