This year has been a life changing experience, at the beginning of the year I had a lot of preconceived ideas already of what to expect out of my internship. After a few months I knew for sure that I knew nothing about youth ministry until I started internship. So being put to hard work and taking on some big responsibilities, I learned a lot of the fundamentals of leadership and even servant hood. God has literally put me into a place to receive all that I can from Pastors Allen and Kristin and see a whole new light on student ministries. Even in my relationship with the Lord, I have been taken to a new level and it’s not even over yet! My love walk has been provoked so many times by people that I literally have to walk in love every day. (Thanks Howard) Anyways, as I reflect back on the year I realize that you definitely have to know you’re called to youth ministry or else it just won’t go well.
Also throughout the year I really got to see the behind the scenes of the lives of Pastors Rodney and Adonica and I know that they are the most legit and tender-hearted people I know. And I thank them for all the sacrifices they have made for us. It’s truly an honor to be an intern under their ministry. And really money can’t buy the experiences that you will receive from this internship.
