Brother Erik on Service Through the Franciscan Lens

“You have one life, how are you going to spend the time you got? What kingdom are you going to serve?”

Br. Erik Lenhart has followed a vocation to dedicate his life to serving the poor as a a Capuchin Franciscan friar.  His journey includes 2 years at West Point Military Academy and a year as an AmeriCorps volunteer (CapCorps volunteer) with Capuchin Youth and Family Ministries (CYFM). In this interview we touch on what it means to serve as a way to selflessness and the importance of service in discerning ones calling.

Quick disclaimer: the Next Generation of Service is not affiliated with a specific religion however we recognize the role spirituality and worldview play in ones journey toward purpose and orientation to service.
