“I was grateful for the intentional care I received...  my supervisor showed genuine concern for my progress and spiritual growth during our meetings, and he has helped me become significantly more self-aware by mirroring the language I use and the feelings I express to him.”

– Dalen Small

“Dependence on the Lord was a large theme over the summer that I just needed to learn about; it started out rough because of specific challenges but I realized a lot of it was rooted in my inability to depend on the Lord and trust His promises.”

– Kejuan Robinson

“The wide variety of classes touched nearly every part of my life, illuminating my sin and God's holiness. I felt close to the Lord in ways I hadn't before, because I was learning all this information about Him, but also because I was processing it with Him.”

– Melissa Goldstein

“To be honest, this summer was challenging, but a good challenge. Not only did this internship provide the opportunity to learn more about God, but also to learn more about myself, specifically as a leader. I was put into roles that I had never been in before and asked to take on new responsibilities within the church. Being able to sit down with my supervisor and get honest feedback on how I handled those responsibilities helped me to better understand myself and the gifts that God has given me. “

– Jonathan Gaminde

"There was a special weight that I carried this summer as an intern supervisor and I didn't take it lightly. I learned how to mentor someone and care for them in such meaningful ways like prayer and intentional conversations that forced me to grow as a leader. I learned the value of building relational credibility that allowed for accountability and growth in special ways!"

– Morgan Behrens

“She challenged me when I didn't truly share or stayed in my comfort zone; she encouraged me when I was vulnerable. She offered a safe space for me! I loved the way she was able to speak into me, calling out things I didn't see in myself and encouraging me to lean into them!”

– Sarah Swoap
