Sept 16th Launched the Kickoff of our History Makers 2013 internship program. This year’s inaugural program is now officially underway with 8 interns coming from 4 different churches to spend a year training and serving with the Seattle Church of Christ. The interns will train here in Seattle for the Fall and Winter, then be sent out this Spring to serve in different Northwest Churches putting into practice all they learned. This Summer, they’ll be heading to Birmingham England to work with Andy and Tammy Flemming before returning to Seattle to finish the program.
Tuesday, we met for an inspirational staff meeting that included ministry staff from the South Sound and North Sound Churches of Christ. Wednesday, we kicked off our two day Ministry and Missions program that brought in more interns and student leaders from Bellingham and Calgary. The group listened to a lesson from Daren Overstreet in the morning and then were out on the UW Campus sharing their faith all afternoon and evening and after only 2 days, as collective group, they have already invited over 500 students to share in the Gospel! We want to thank the NW Churches for their faith and shared vision to grow in leadership and faith on Campus!
As the program gets started we want to officially recognize Allie Struzyna (Seattle), Edmund Pascual (Anchorage), Elliot Richards (Seattle), Kaley Nunez (Triangle, NC), Madeline Martin (Seattle), Nikhil Pattni (Vagas), and Whitney Valez (Anchorage) for their sacrifice and commitment. We’d also like to thank all the host families: the Keysers, Holmans, Martins, Murrells, Richlins, and the Northgate Single men for their faith and love.
