This summer, I have the privilege of working as an intern with Stateline Youth for Christ. I get to spend time working with a team of amazing people whom all share the goal of helping at-risk youth reach a healthy relationship with Christ.
In the last four weeks, I’ve had the chance to bridge the gap between my gifts and my passions. Each day in the YFC office, I’ve been able to help make an indirect impact on the youth in Rockford. Working with YFC has allowed me to gain experience doing administrative and support tasks, while still having the chance to work with and impact the youth in our city. The team has helped me to learn more about myself as an individual and as a member of a team. The diversity within this amazing group of people helps to ignite creativity and productivity within every one of us, especially myself. The work that I’ve been able to do myself and observe others doing has inspired me in ways that I never expected.
In addition to the amazing work I get to do in the office, next month I will have the chance to serve as a cabin leader for the middle school summer camp. While at camp, I get to spend time with youth one-on-one and have the chance to make a direct impact on their lives. For students, summer camp tends to be a life-changing experience and the catalyst for them to say “yes” to Christ. So, I’m very excited about this opportunity, and can’t wait to see what God does for us all at camp!
During the closing half of my internship, I hope to continue learning about how the Youth for Christ organization works behind the scenes and being an asset to the Stateline Youth for Christ team. I will have the chance to be more hands-on with our youth, attending City Life sessions and being able to attend building time with students. I ask that you all continue to pray for us and the work that we’re doing in the months to come!
