Dr. Tom Egger, president Concordia Seminary in St. Louis and professor of Exegetical Theology, joins Sarah for our Set Apart to Serve Series to talk about his path to becoming a church worker, how relationships made a difference in his vocational path and also in the lives of the students at Concordia Seminary, how residential pastoral formation is a blessing to the Church, opportunities for pastoral and diaconal formation at Concordia Seminary, and his encouragement to those people who are considering church work vocations. Learn more about Concordia Seminary at csl.edu.

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.
