Rev. John Zimmerman — pastor of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Scranton, PA, and Marli Ockander — teacher at Sioux Falls Lutheran School in Sioux Falls, SD, join Andy and Sarah for our Set Apart to Serve Series to talk about their paths to becoming church workers, how they overcame barriers in their paths, how their church and school became part of the Set Apart to Serve Pilot Program, the goals they have for church worker recruitment, and challenges they’ve encountered when talking with young people about 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.
