Hosting Interns

December 12, 2022

In this SLN monthly gathering, members of the SLN team share their thoughts on hosting interns with a particular focus on summer student ministry interns.

“I have really enjoyed participating in these monthly Zoom calls with other youth leaders! It’s been a breath of fresh air, reminding me I’m not alone in youth ministry. I’ve appreciated the connections I’ve made with other youth ministers in the Province. And it’s nice to have a chance to reflect on how I’m doing and share that with others in a non-threatening, safe environment.”
