Sarah Harms

Serving in Russia



Sarah Harms serves through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) in Russia. She works with the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Ingria (an LCMS partner church) helping them assess the needs of the local community. She also assists them with youth programs as needed. In addition, Sarah is involved with crisis pregnancy centers around the city that focus on mentoring former orphans. When necessary, she facilitates English-as-a-Foreign-Language (EFL) classes and helps to coordinate youth summer camps in the LCMS Eurasia region.

Sarah grew up in the St. Louis, Mo., area, where she is a member of Chapel of the Cross Lutheran Church in St. Peter’s, Mo. She earned a bachelor’s degree in lay ministry and theology from Concordia University Wisconsin, Mequon. Prior to her deployment to Russia, Sarah completed two years of service with the LCMS in Silesia, Czech Republic, where she worked with the Silesian Evangelical Church of the Augsburg Confession.


Pray for Sarah as she lives and serves in Russia. Ask God to guide her as she makes connections in her community, allowing her to fulfill the role which He has called her to do. Pray that she has peace of mind and of spirit as she adjusts to the Russian culture and learns the language of the people to smoothly assimilate. Ask God to present clear opportunities for her to cultivate meaningful relationships in her life locally so that she is blessed and can be a blessing to those around her. Let us give thanks that Sarah is serving God’s children in this part of the world.

The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod Inc., including Mission Central (in Mapleton, Iowa), is an IRS registered 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity.

A contribution designated (restricted) for a specific purpose when accepted, will be used only to fund expenses related to that purpose. Occasionally, we may receive more in contributions for a particular purpose than can be wisely applied to it in the foreseeable future or the purpose may cease to be feasible. In these situations, the LCMS will make reasonable attempts to contact contributors to apply their contribution differently. If a contributor cannot be contacted, the LCMS will use the gift to meet a similar pressing need that most closely matches the contributor's original intent. Consistent with Synod Board policy, no more than 13.5 percent of a charitable contribution may be allocated to administering gifts and communicating with contributors. Contributions received and accepted by the LCMS are deemed to be in agreement with this statement.
