The ENGAGE Internship was just what I expected, and more! I knew I would receive quality training for Bible study and small-group leading, and that I would live in a community of like-minded individuals. What I did not realize was how God was going to challenge me to grow both in His Word, and in real, sanctifying fellowship. There is something special about a whole summer where the Word of God is the focus, and where everything is covered in fervent prayer. I will continually look back on this internship with thanksgiving. Every aspect of it was pertinent in preparing me to return more fully equipped to serve my community at home.
