It’s July 1st and that means it’s time to begin our summer internship. This morning I was joined by a group students who are ready to grow spiritually all summer long. It’s been a busy few days leading up to the start of internship, but when the students pulled into the parking lot I knew it was worth all the pressure I was feeling.
This year we have four of our youth staff members helping organize and operate the internship. Interns meet and work at the church on Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday each week for the months of July and August. They work together on ministry projects, receive teaching from our church staff, study the Bible, read a few books, and enjoy hanging out together all summer long.
I love the time we get to spend with our students throughout the summer. It’s fun to see them grow spiritually, and not just take the summer off from God and the church. Helping students develop a love for God and his house is truly one of the coolest parts about my job. I’m looking forward to a busy and productive summer.
