Recruiting for a More Diverse Ministry

In Word and Work: An Intersection, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, President Dr. Dale A. Meyer sits down with Director of Recruitment Rev. Micah Glenn (’16), an African American pastor in the largely white LCMS. The two men talk about the need to recruit more pastors as well as the need to recruit pastoral students from diverse backgrounds. They also discuss Glenn’s first call as a missionary to Ferguson, Mo., in the aftermath of the Michael Brown police shooting and today’s continuing calls around the world for racial equity for Black people in light of the death of George Floyd during an arrest in Minneapolis, Minn.

In the audio version, hear an address from Glenn at the 2019 National Youth Gathering, “Do We Really Need to Talk about Racism?” You can download the episode in video (mp4) or audio (mp3) format at the Word and Work Scholar page.

Word and Work: An Intersection is a video and audio program providing a behind-the-scenes look at ministry where everyday life and God’s Word meet. It is broadcast on KFUO Radio every Thursday at 2:00 pm CT.
