Feature ‘Immerse Without Drowning’ : The importance of vicarage on pastoral formation

“It’s not really a question of need,” Vicar Mark Gaschler said. “It’s a question of great joy, of the great opportunity that we have, that God has called men to go out and to bring out His Gospel.” Gaschler, a student at Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, was the 32nd vicar to serve at Trinity Lutheran Church in Norman, Okla., under the supervision of the Rev. David Nehrenz, newly elected district president in the LCMS Oklahoma District.

A vicar is a pastor in training. These men are assigned by the Synod’s Council of Presidents, acting as the Board of Assignments, into congregations around the country for a year of hands-on learning under the supervision and mentorship of an experienced pastor. They are not assistant pastors, noted Nehrenz. Instead, they are learning the craft.

October 2022 Life Together Digest with President Harrison


In this Life Together Digest, the Rev. Dr. Matthew C. Harrison, president of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS), discusses Church Worker Appreciation Month.

Harrison introduces the Set Apart to Serve church work recruitment initiative, which is examining the struggles with church worker shortages in the Synod and providing resources for pastors, teachers and other influencers to encourage children to pursue church work. 

He encourages us to pray and give thanks for our current church workers, and to pray to the Lord for new pastors, teachers and other church workers (Matt. 9:36–38). 

"It's His harvest, they're His workers, and He'll send them. He bids us to pray," says Harrison.
