June 2017

One of my favorite things about the summer ministry is working with our interns. I am very thankful that our church decided many years ago that this was important enough for us to invest in. There have been many college students minister alongside us and assist in our summer programs. This has been a very successful ministry. Some of these students have gone on to become pastors, missionaries, music leaders, and Sunday school teachers.  Most are actively serving our God in many different professions as they participate in the ministry of their local churches.  It has been exciting to see how God has used these students for His glory.

We are excited to have two interns with us this summer. Steven Schall will return to work with us from Indiana State University.  He is involved with the BCM leadership there and is very excited to return this summer. Steven is even bringing his own vehicle filled with supplies that he thinks he needs for the summer. He did an outstanding job last year and is excited to return.

Allyssa Schaff will also be interning this summer. She grew up in our church and over the past couple of school years has been very involved in ministry. She teaches in our SWAT program on Wednesday nights and has been an important part of the BCM leadership team at Casper College. She is well respected among our youth, who actually recruited her to intern.

Both of these interns will be heavily involved in ministry this summer: helping with VBS, going to Haiti and Canada on our mission trips, going to Children’s camp and Summit as sponsors and many other ministries.

I am thankful for the involvement of our church family in the lives of these students.  Our willingness to bring these students on as interns gives them a safe, encouraging environment to develop their skills and gifts in ministry.  Not every church is willing to put in the resources and time to invest in students like this. Many former interns share about how valuable this experience was for them as they gained experience and developed skills for ministry.

It is important for our church family to take the time to get to know these students. They are more than hired help for the summer, but are a valuable part of our church. Take them to lunch or have them over to your home for a visit.  Pray for them and encourage them in their ministry.  Help make this summer an experience that will have lasting impact on not only their lives, but the lives of those they minister to.
