For the last year, I have been fortunate enough to learn and grow in ministry here at theCross. When I arrived here last May I was working in Camp Cross as a college intern from Concordia University in Ann Arbor, Michigan. In January, when my collegiate internship was complete, I was offered a six-month contractual position to stay on staff and lead our Kid’s Ministry in Mount Dora. It was a blessing for me to be able to help out in a time of transition for the program while continuing to enhance my skills in ministry.
I am so grateful to have been able to both fill a needed position here at theCross for the last year and to fulfill the requirements I needed to graduate from college. I have now graduated with a degree in senior adult care services, and I have been heavily praying about pursuing a job in that field. I am open and willing to see what God has next for me. Because I am interested in pursuing work in this field, or a field similar, I feel led to finish out strong through July 15th as Kid’s Director of Camp Cross, and then, to pass the torch to the next wave of leadership. I will certainly still be around church, and fully supportive of the ministry here, and am looking forward to continuing to serve on our awesome Dream Team as part of this faith-filled family of Jesus followers!
Some of you may have questions about our Kid’s ministry moving forward. While we may not have all the answers, I believe the timing has worked out well, as we are welcoming Sydney, our new Concordia University Intern, at the beginning of June. We will work to get her plugged in as quickly as possible to make this transition as smooth as possible.
The sermon series that we are in, “In Transit,” is hitting close to home for the church, for personal life, etc. and we are truly trusting in God and His ability to provide the right people at the right time!
If you have any questions, please feel free to send me an email. I would love to talk with you!
