As a promising new lawyer, Jay Martin would have seem like a guy out of place in the projects of Little Rock, Arkansas, shooting hoops, befriending fatherless kids, and introducing them to Jesus. Since then, Jay has enjoyed a prominent career in law and politics. Yet, despite his vocational demands, Jay continued his outreach. Today it has grown into a vital ministry that is reaching hundreds of Little Rock’s needy kids and their families for Christ.
As an eye-witness of what God can do with someone who wants to make a difference, Jay presents ample evidence for why your vocation need not limit your ministry potential. His story is convincing testimony that, no matter how demanding your career is, if you have a passion for helping others, then Jesus is ready to use you!
