In his ear­ly years, he worked as a black­smith. He was al­so the first jus­tice of the peace in Sum­mit town­ship for 14 years.

On June 16, 1855, the day of his bap­tism, Lint was made a dea­con of the lo­cal con­gre­ga­tion of the Ger­man Bap­tist Breth­ren church in Mey­ers­dale, Penn­syl­van­ia, un­u­su­al for such a new mem­ber.

At the time he en­tered the min­is­try, he had been teach­ing vo­cal mu­sic, but had to dis­con­tinue the class­es due to his new pas­tor­al duties.
