Summer Internships Underway

The Leadership Center is thrilled to host ten summer interns from George Fox University and Warner Pacific College! We are facilitating internships at new sites this summer including Love INC in Newberg, Called to Belong in Portland, Sanctuary Church in Gresham, and Eastside Free Methodist Church in Portland.

Here is a brief spotlight on one of our interns, Rachel Payne, a senior and Christian Ministries major at Warner Pacific College.

“This summer, I have the amazing opportunity to intern with Di Endicott, and Northside Church. They will be helping me to better engage my calling in seeing first-hand what it looks like to work with full time pastoral ministry. I am looking forward to seeing what God has in store for me this summer, and diving deeper into my calling. I have been so blessed to get to know Trisha Welstad over the past year, and am excited for the work she is doing helping people such as myself engage in internship opportunities. Working with The Leadership Center has helped me grow so much over the last year and I am happy it happened. I know this summer holds so much for me, and I’m excited to keep growing.”

Please pray for our interns and our sites as we navigate each students calling and passion for service within our local contexts.
