“Interning at Fellowship – specifically with the Middle School Ministry – has been an incredible learning experience; I loved being able to work with such a diverse Family Ministry Team and group of volunteers. I’ve been able to work personally with awesome mentors and have felt seen, heard, and valued in both my role and contributions.”
