1. I learned some new or unique ways God may want to use me in ministry and how that fits into my life now, being placed in the marketplace.
2. Learning about habits and intentionality with my time. Prioritizing the Lord and knowing that if I put him first the rest will follow.
3. Because nobody knows what they are capable of until they try. Putting themselves into new ministry opportunities and intentional personal investment will always teach you more about yourself of what God has for you.
1. I grew in maturity, humility, confidence, and mostly intimacy with the Lord. This internship produced more growth in my walk with Jesus than any conference, class, or training I’ve ever gone too.
2.The Way From Here (Old and New Testament) answered so many biblical questions that I had, and put me into new perspectives I would never have otherwise thought. John Lewis come was very encouraging, and shed a whole new light on the heart of the Word and what actually is happening through the eyes of God and His people.
