Life’s work

What do an engineer, a writer, two youth ministers, a scientist, and a photographer have in common? While their tools may vary, each has been called by God to build the church. We asked these six people to reflect and share how God called each of them and how they responded—and continue to respond. Their stories attest to how our common baptism makes us all builders in the reign of God.
