We’re incredibly grateful to be able to have six Branch folks share their stories of vocation.

In this series you’ll hear how they have come to understand what vocation means and how it has impacted their lives. We hope these stories of discovery and disappointment, joy and growth, inspire you to explore and live into whatever your vocation may be.

The first story is from Jason Kotarski.

 

“I wanted to be a millionaire.”

Is that the definition of success?

How can we redefine success in business?

How can we use our experience to make a difference in other people’s lives?

Sometimes that looks like taking very small, but intentional steps. And sometimes, there are big steps to take and it involves starting businesses so that someone else can thrive. Here one such story, as told by Scott Friesen here:

 

Living Like They Believe” is a four part YouTube series, telling the stories of 4 people who are living out their vocation. In this story, Anthony Suber, an artist, tells how his work transformed after he was baptized. Creating art is one way to tell a story. Suber compares his artistic process to that of Jesus as he told parables.

Take 8 minutes to watch his story and hear how Suber’s work was transformed, as he views his art as a tool of transformation for others. Even when the end-product is not exactly how he envisioned it, he trusts that the work of his hands can bring transformation and healing to others.
