Kylee Crook (2018 Student Ministry Intern)
Over the course of the internship, many takeaways, lessons, and skills were learned and attained. However, nothing more significant comes to mind than what I felt, learned, and experienced through the presence of God. I watched myself come alive and be set free in the tenderness of His nature, and communicated with Him in ways that were so evident to who I am, and the way that He created me. I experienced His creativity firsthand in the way that He talked to me and used community and counsel to heal me. I sat in awe and wonder of His kind and powerful nature as I witnessed God speak to others and myself about fellow sons and daughters of His as He gave an ever present reminder that humanity at its core is good, and He has created each of us to help each other, and heal each other in ways so unique to the manner in which we are created.
He showed me heaven on earth amongst a community that is doing life in His name. I experienced how incredible people are when they walk in an identity so divine and so heavenly. I experienced community that heals through truth, challenge, continual acceptance of who each person is, and boundless grace that has no barriers. A view of church leadership was restored that I didn’t know I needed as I watched those mentoring me be unapologetically themselves in every scenario. Generosity flows abundantly from the HopeCity community as I always felt welcome, taken care of, and provided for. Through community, I experienced the epic provision of the Father, and how he cares to take care of us.
Anyone can do a summer internship and add it to their resume. However, if you want to
be challenged, grow, and experience simultaneously your full potential in the Father and His radical love for you, I encourage you to embark on this journey. If you want to experience heaven on earth, HopeCity Internships is the place for you.
