  • SAM ROBINS:

    PROJECT TRANSFORMATION INTERN SUMMER 2015

    Project Transformation is an experience that helped me grow physically, emotionally, and most importantly spiritually. The work itself was demanding. I would wake up Monday through Friday at 6:30 am, get ready as quickly as I could and be downstairs ready for our meeting by 7. The rest of the day was wrought with crying, kids bickering, the struggle that is getting kids to want to learn in the summer, and often frustrating problems that would seemingly appear out of nowhere. It was undoubtedly one of the most difficult and stressful jobs I've ever had. But, in the midst of all of that, there was beauty. When a word a child hadn't known before finally slipped out from in between their lips, and they conquered a pronunciation they'd struggled with for weeks that was beautiful. I had a young man confide in me his feelings about his father’s recent overdose and how he figured he had no choice but to follow the same path. I caught him at Urban Camp smoking pot, and of course had to have him removed from the camp. But I spent that whole day, until his mother arrived, speaking earnestly with him. I laid my heart out, and I told him he was loved. I told him weed, pills, alcohol and everything of that nature couldn't bring him the sense of belonging he desired. I told him, for me, I found that in Christ. I told him I found that in the love of my friends and family. I told him I found it in my education. I shared with him how I'd struggled with similar things at his age and that he'd figure it out. At the end, he cried and hugged us, and said 'okay'. I never knew I could help someone in that way. I never realized I could open myself and share my heart in the pursuit of healing another. THAT is how Project Transformation grew me. It forced me to be in situations I never could've foreseen, and it forced me to act with empathy, compassion, and love. This skill is something I cherish. It's something no classroom, no instructor, and frankly no person could truly teach. Project Transformation packed a lot of lessons into a single summer. I learned time management with all of the constantly rotating classes. I learned how to teach in a way that excited the children and caused them to yearn for more. I learned how to set aside my pride, put on a wig and make a fool of myself. I learned how to accept the pain inherent in poverty, when a little girl tells you that the (awful) food bank food is the most delicious meal she's had in months. I learned how to work all day teaching kids and all night making lesson plans and attending meetings. I learned how to work with VERY difficult people and how to enjoy working with some of the loveliest people I’ve ever known. I guess, the last thing I'd say, is that I just learned how to set aside all of life's unimportant nonsense and serve.

    C2K INTERN - SUMMER 2015

    As a Manager at Connect to the Kingdom during the summer of 2015 I: learned how to build stairs, scheduled interns to work various shifts, fine tuned my design skills, greeted hundreds of students from across the country, cooked for 150 individuals in a house kitchen, and delivered furniture to families recovering from homelessness. These are all things I believe come with the territory of working for a non-profit. At the end of the summer, I was rehired to continue working for C2K and Tyler Street United Methodist Church as a school year intern. Internships are broken down into six categories: C2K, Pastoral, Children, Youth, Administrative, and Music. C2K’s school year internship program focuses more heavily on growing interns in life experience, as we are assigned weekly homework to aid in our time/financial management, and call discernment. Working and growing in faith with five other young adults has been an amazing opportunity for me, as I have learned to communicate my spiritual struggles in an open and vulnerable community. Living on campus at Tyler Street UMC has granted me hands on experiences in ministry that I know cannot be match anywhere else. I am now managing 10th Street Grind, a coffee bar housed out of Tyler Street UMC’s new contemporary space, and have found great joy in exploring this new role. I have learned to speak freely about Jesus Christ, and become very comfortable sharing his love with strangers as I am often approached by those in need on the street. As our calendar quickly fills up, I become more and more excited about all of the new faces I will see from across the country in 2016.

  • RYAN STEIL: BRIDGEPORT CAMP INTERN SUMMER 2015

    Working as a summer intern for Bridgeport Camp and Conference Center was an extremely rewarding experience. The relationships that I was able to make with the staff, directors, counselors, and many of the campers will remain irreplaceably close to my heart. Growing up and attending Bridgeport Camp, myself, as a camper, made this opportunity to serve, each and every day, even more meaningful to me, and my faith journey. While this position is definitely service oriented, with many late nights and early mornings, the satisfaction of supporting a younger group of individuals grow in their faith is phenomenal. This past summer has really opened my eyes and I greatly appreciate the opportunity I had to work at Bridgeport Camp and Conference Center.
