Our interns are active in every part of our ministry. From brewing coffee to setting up rooms before events, designing event posters to baking for small groups, our interns work to turn this building into a welcoming space for their fellow students. In Liturgy of the Ordinary, Tish Harrison Warren quotes a sign that “hangs on the wall in a New Monastic Christian community house: ‘Everyone wants a revolution. No one wants to do the dishes.’” Her thesis in this chapter is that the small, quotidian moments of our lives form us and reveal us in deeper and more significant ways than our dreams and ideals ever could.
In a University context that (with good reason) encourages students to dream big, strive for greatness, and lead their peers well, this Intern Program is all about washing dishes. We are continually seeking to worship the Lord by doing the small things–taking out the trash, tidying up spreadsheets, scrubbing coffee stains off the walls–in community. A common slogan in our program is WBT–“We’re Better Together.”
We have a wonderful team of interns who work here because they love the vision of Christian study and hospitality that is central to our ministry. They are ready to roll up their sleeves and wash some dishes. Get to know our current team below!
