Day Eight -August, Student Interns

Every August we say goodbye to our Urban Ministry Interns and welcome our Social Work Interns.

Each summer, Steven and Kyndra, at River City Church, co-mentor college students through a ten-week internship program. It’s an amazing time for our interns to experience urban ministry with the homeless people who we see at RCM every morning, and work with at-risk youth in an inner-city church every afternoon. We grow very close during this time and build lasting relationships with some truly beautiful young people.

Throughout the school year, Marci supervises all our social work interns in their field placement. We a proud to provide an exprience where our interns can learn first hand how to engage with people in all sorts of life circumstances. They help connect low-income and homeless people with resources and staff the housing program we talked about earlier this week. We love to watch how our interns learn and grow and we bennifit so much for their hard work.

We are grateful for our partnership with great schools like Harding University, Oklahoma Christian College, the University of Arkansas, UA Little Rock, and Baptist College. We love what each student brings to the table and they are wonderful reminders of why we do what we do. Our ministry could not be what it is today without the many student interns who serve with us every year.
