Trey Shirley believes there is more to his work than simply teaching his students at Wayland Baptist University the finer points of graphic design.

Part of Shirley's goal is to help students understand how they can use their chosen vocation as an instrument of ministry. He hopes students understand that as they work in graphic design or the arts, they should not lose touch with their faith.

"All work is kingdom work," he said.

Shirley encourages students to explore how they can make an impact on the world by combining their faith and their vocation.
