Summer Stories 2010

"Honestly, being a part of Wellspring has given me hope again in the church and its ability to be effective in changing lives and changing the world."
-- Melanie Fox, Pelham, AL
-- Summer Placement:  Wellspring United Church of Christ, Centreville, VA

 

"I realized then and thre that yes, a career in missions is what God has called me to do.  I had thought and prayed about it for years, but I never really knew if missions would be a full time thing or an 'after work' kind of thing."
--Katy Kammerdierner, Fort Oglethorpe, GA
--Summer Placement:  Back Bay Mission, Biloxi, MS

 

"After my summer at Metro, I began to think maybe it is not about being super efficient through having more crafts, more recreation or even morning celebration.  Maybe it is about the simplicity of being the presence of Christ at all moments."
--Lindsay Pruiett, Birmingham, AL
--Summer Placement:  Rauschenbusch Metro Ministries at Metro Baptist Church, New York, NY

 

"However small these projects may have seemed, I knew I was making an impact ... the summer was truly a great experience for me."
--Matthew Johnson, Nashville, TN
--Summer Placement:  Rauschenbusch Metro Ministries at Metro Baptist Church, New York, NY

 

"My experience in Toledo this summer pushed me into a new comfort zone and emphasized the importance of justice ministry within my life and within the life of the greater church.  The work that Nu-Vizion performs fills gaps within the broken system of society."
--Cassie Howe, Alstead, NH
--Summer Placement:  Nu-Vizion United Church of Christ/Sylvania United CHurch of Christ, Toledo, OH
