Rev. Joshua Brakhage, Associate Pastor at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Edmond, Oklahoma, joins Andy and Sarah for our Set Apart to Serve Series to talk about his career in television broadcasting before becoming a pastor, what shaped his decision to change careers and start a new journey as a church worker, his journey through seminary as a second-career church worker, how his previous career helps in what he does now as a pastor, and how his congregation encourages students and second career adults to consider 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.
