Rev. James Cleland, Associate Pastor at St. Mark Lutheran Church & School in Houston, TX, and Student Recruitment Ambassador with Concordia Seminary in St Louis, joins Andy and Sarah for our Set Apart to Serve Series to talk about his winding journey into church work, how his experience as an educator has served him in his pastoral formation and now as a full-time pastor, and his encouragement to others who are considering church work.

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.
