The internship at Richland Creek was a big blessing to me. It confirmed an already growing desire for ministry in me and made me want to pursue it even harder. I really enjoyed the team environment that the staff and pastors did so well to create as well as the opportunities to learn from and ask questions of pastors who have been walking in ministry a long time. Another big blessing was the many opportunities to take ownership over a task. Whether it be a game at an event or a small task behind the scenes, and even two sermons, I got very valuable experience and a better understanding of what ministry is really like.
