For the fourth year, Christ College is hosting a team of young adult interns for the summer. As a former intern, I’m pleased to present this year’s group. You can read more about the history of the Christ College Residency Program here and hear about my own experience.Christ College Residents 2013

Led by Dr. Jason Hood, the Christ College Residency Program provides discussion two mornings a week during a series of lessons dealing with the subject matter that Jason describes as “the architecture of the Christian faith and its implications for our life as disciples in God’s world.”

The rest of the interns’ time during the summer is spent serving in their particular ministry areas. Six are serving with the student ministry, two with worship and production and two in missions—one with Advance Memphis and one with the serving & outreach office at Christ Church.

They have already completed their first month and will be with us until the end of July. Welcome these interns as you see them around campus!
