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.
