set apart was founded by Brent and Kristin Morris on September 1, 2010.
BRENT MORRIS [Executive Director + Founder]
Brent believes this biblical truth: people are set apart, not because of who they are, but because they were made by the hands of God. Jeremiah 1:5 says, "Before God formed us in the womb, He knew us..." God is an artist, and we are all the art of God. Brent has spent a lifetime discovering what that means and is passionate about sharing what God has taught him: we were made for a holy purpose. Believe it. Be living it! After graduating with a B.A. in Art from William Jewell College, Brent was blessed to have a two-year apprenticeship with renowned artist Mark English, followed by a 13-year career at Hallmark Cards where he held a wide range of creative, innovative and product development roles. His last four years were spent in leadership and liaison roles, helping to launch a new subsidiary and then working with other subsidiaries to leverage Hallmark’s creative resources and innovation. In September of 2010, Brent resigned from Hallmark to pursue the call to full-time ministry when God placed this charge in his heart: “Stop focusing on product and start focusing on people. Help them do what I created them to do!” In response, Brent founded set apart. He is tremendously blessed to work alongside his wife and two children as they actively discover each day what God has set them apart to do...and to help others do the same.
KRISTIN MORRIS [Managing Director + Founder]
Kristin uses her creativity to point people to Jesus and propel them into their purpose. This is her personal and professional mission, which God has been growing in her for as long as she can remember. As a child, Kristin spent much of her spare time making handmade gifts for friends and family, and is still doing that today. She has a passion for creativity in many forms and is forever exploring new techniques, media and materials. Her tools usually include the computer, the pen, and the camera. She first took her creativity to market while in college by starting a photography business. Since graduating with a B.S. in Secondary Education in Spanish from Kansas State University in 1996, Kristin has served in international ministry and worked in both for-profit and non-profit business sectors in the areas of communications, project management, social media marketing and graphic design. Kristin co-founded set apart with her husband, Brent. She deeply treasures the journey with him and their two beautiful children as they live out their missions together for the Lord.
