Meet the Summer Interns for 2018

June 21, 2018


It’s summer and that means that New Life and the nZone have NEW summer interns! Our Internship and Residency program is an exciting way for us to train college-aged students for a potential careers in ministry. Not only do the students learn a ton and get plenty of hands-on training, but they are vital in helping New Life accomplish our summer ministry goals.

Introducing our four Summer Interns for 2018.

Abby Barron, nZone Camp Intern, Johnson University

Fun Fact: One of my dreams is to meet Taylor Swift and become best friends!

Why are you here this summer? I came to the nZone to learn more about sports ministry in a way that I never have before. I’m passionate about loving others and being active, so the values and purpose of both New Life and the nZone allow me to do that in a way that pushes me in my faith and in my growth as a student and as an athlete. I’m excited for the rest of the summer!

Brealle White, Children’s Ministry Intern, Mid-Atlantic Christian University

Fun Fact: I lived on a giant wooden boat for three weeks as my family traveled from NC to FL.

Why I’m at New Life: I trusted in the Lord throughout the internship process to guide me to a place where I would learn and grow in tremendous ways and come out better equipped to advance His kingdom. 

Chase Rigdon, Student Ministry Intern, Johnson University 

Fun Fact: My Team and I Won the Solar Car Race Tournament when I was in elementary school.

Why I’m at New Life: After asking some of my friends about their internships I got positive feedback about New Life from one of my Friends. Also I thought that working in student ministry would help me become more well rounded in doing ministry as my major is Preaching and Church Leadership, and does not focus on student ministry that much. I felt that this would be important because often times the first job you get coming out of getting a 4-year degree in ministry regardless of its focus involves working in either  children’s or youth ministry from what I understand, and I want to be able to effectively show those kid’s Christ in the best way I possibly can. Having experience doing this beforehand would surely help that to be done in a more effective way than if I had no experience.

Christopher Mitchell, Student Ministry Intern, Cincinnati Christian University

Fun Fact: I was adopted from Russia when I was 9 months old.

Why I’m at New Life: I am here to do ministry. To learn more about student ministry and get hands on experience in the ministry.
