Sarah Harms

Serving the Lord in the Czech Republic


Sarah Harms serves the Lord through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) as a GEO (globally engaged in outreach) missionary in the Czech Republic. In this role, Sarah works with the Silesian Evangelical Church of the Augsburg Confession (SECAC) and Project M.I.S.E. In the Czech language, Project M.I.S.E. stands for Mobilizace, Integrace osobnosti, Společenství, Evangelizace. Translated into English, Project M.I.S.E. stands for Mobilization, Integration, Fellowship, Evangelizing. Project M.I.S.E. started as a missions initiative from the Silesian Church with the intention of being the mission branch of this church body. Most recently, Project M.I.S.E. adopted the vision of 21/10, starting 21 mission groups over the next 10 years. Sarah bears witness to the Gospel through her participation in this initiative.

Sarah teaches conversational English in various traditional and non-traditional learning environments on a weekly basis. She leads Bible studies on topics of interest for non-believers and believers alike. During the summer months, Sarah also helps coordinate and facilitate LCMS short-term mission teams and events focusing on teaching the English language using Bible-based materials. As needed, Sarah assists other LCMS missionaries serving in the Czech Republic with existing projects and events and helps to teach members of LCMS partner churches Lutheran doctrine and catechesis.

Sarah’s hometown is St. Peters, Mo., where she is a member of Chapel ofthe Cross Lutheran Church. She earned a bachelor’s degree in lay ministry and theology, withan emphasis/specialization in missions and evangelism, from Concordia University Wisconsin,Mequon. Prior to serving as a missionary, Sarah completed lay ministry internships at MountCalvary Lutheran Church, Milwaukee, and Chapel of the Cross Lutheran Church, St. Peters,Mo. She also served on a short-term missions team at a Christian kids camp in Hungary in2010 and 2011 and shadowed LCMS missionaries while participating in short-term missionwork in Lima, Peru, in 2015. In her free time, Sarah enjoys hiking, writing, reading, traveling,music, spending time with family and friends and learning about history and other cultures.


Please pray for Sarah as she serves in the Czech Republic. Ask God to give her strength as she adapts to the culture and learns the language. Pray for her family and friends who are still in the United States. Pray that God helps her make meaningful connections and that the Gospel takes root in the hearts of the people of the Czech Republic. Ask God to give Sarah patience, peace and resolution to do the work He has called her to do. Pray that, through God’s grace and the Holy Spirit’s power, Sarah is successful in her witness to God’s love and the Gospel. 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 12 percent of a charitable contribution may be applied to administering gifts and communicating with contributors.  Contributions received and accepted by the LCMS are deemed to be in agreement with this statement.
