May 2018

One of my favorite things about the summer ministry is working with our interns.  Over the years we have had many college students work with us to assist in our summer programs. This has been a very successful ministry with many of these students going 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 three interns with us this summer. Alyssa has grown up in our church and interned with us both last summer and during the school year as well. She will be entering her final year of college in the fall where she will graduate with a degree in elementary education. Cody and Olivia will be coming to us from Indiana State University.  They are both involved with the BCM there, serving on the leadership team and are very excited to work with us this summer. These interns will be heavily involved in ministry this summer. They will be helping with VBS, going to Canada on our mission trip, going to Children’s camp and Summit as sponsors along with 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.  I often talk to former interns and listen to them share about how valuable this experience was for them as they gained experience and developed skills for ministry.

For this ministry to be as successful as possible, 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.
