Soon after becoming a Christian, Staten Island native George Zaloom's international real-estate business fell apart. The only thing he had left was his automotive business, Zaloom's Auto Repair. After an innocent question posed by the father of a friend, Zaloom embraced the mundane work of oil changes and tire rotations with one phrase: "Yes, I'm the mechanic."

In this short film from City film director Nathan Clarke, Zaloom describes the joy of work—a joy that matches that found at home and at church: "If you can't find joy eight hours a day, there's something wrong."

Yes, I'm the Mechanic

Auto-repair shop owner George Zaloom says there's no reason why every Christian shouldn't find joy at work.
