Art of Stone

Experience for unique, striking, beautiful, custom-crafted and artistic stonework. LS31 Lead Volunteer, Jesse Martin, has a background in masonry and especially loves stonework. Masonry is among the oldest trades, and many scholars believe Jesus was likely a stonemason. The Greek word “Teckton” means builder. Evidence to clarify exactly what Jesus was a builder of isn’t available, but in the regions where Jesus lived everything was built from rock (millstones, winepresses, houses, and more). In the Jewish culture of the first century, fathers would normally begin to teach their sons a trade by age twelve and help them find a wife at age twenty.

Jesse has close contact with one of the best masonry contractors in the Southeast that fully supports missions and the Lord’s work. While Jesse’s time may be limited to personally lay your stone, he can direct you to your best options for cost effective stone work, and even brick, block, and precast.
