Rev. Karl Bollhagen, pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church in Hampton Iowa, joins Andy and Sarah for our Set Apart to Serve Series to talk about the need for church workers in the LCMS today, how pastors and congregation members shape the culture in a congregation to support young people pursuing church work vocation, what is key to cultivating a culture that raises up church workers, and how he and others in his congregation speak to youth about church work vocations.

Christ’s church will continue until He returns, and that church will continue to need church workers.
Set Apart to Serve (SAS) is an initiative of the LCMS to recruit church workers. Together, we pray for workers for the Kingdom of God and encourage children to consider church work vocations.
Here are three easy ways you can participate in SAS:
1. Pray with your children for God to provide church workers.
2. Talk to your children about becoming church workers.
3. Thank God for the people who work in your congregation.
