The Power of Diverse Relationships with Chris Lambert
In 2010, Chris Lambert started Life Remodeled, centered on building houses from the ground up in six days that were deeded to deserving families. After three years, Lambert partnered with the Detroit Public Schools to refocus Life Remodel’s efforts on under-resourced high schools and their surrounding neighborhoods, evolving into a transformative citywide community rebuilding initiative.
Over the last five years, Life Remodeled has mobilized over $26M and more than 55,000 volunteers from business, community, and church organizations to set the groundwork for sustainable change in four Detroit neighborhoods, each focused on bettering public education and creating safe passages for attending students.
After speaking at a conference in Indianapolis, Chris Lambert stopped by the Truth At Work studio to visit with Ray about bringing God’s Kingdom to the community of Detroit through service initiatives that transcend race, politics, socioeconomic status, religious background, and social standing.

“Knowing who you are, knowing what your gifts are is so essential to you being able to figure out what role you play.”
