Summer 2020 Photography Intern

8. 07. 20

This summer has been such an incredible summer. I felt like a sponge–absorbing truths from speakers, scriptures, and new friends. I learned a lot about not being a friend to go outside of my own gifts. I felt like God grew me a lot in areas this summer that I didn’t expect. Being able to take on more outward leadership roles that, internally, I felt like I wasn’t very capable of doing. An example of this was being able to co-host revival July Revival Night. That night showed me that if I am willing–God will use me. I am so thankful that I was able to work with this amazing team this summer. Even though this summer is over, I am so pumped that my mission is still the same–to go out and use my gifts to show people Jesus.

I have been learning so much through being a photography intern at Pulse. One way I have been really pushed this month in this internship was being able to co-host the July Revival Nights. I have experienced these kinds of roles in worship team settings, but never really in an actual speaking role. It pushed me out of my comfort zone. It made me realize that I enjoy being in these kinds of roles, and being able to be used that way to bring other people to the gospel.

I found the Pulse internship program through Emily Langley. I have known Emily through mutual friends, and I was aware that she was part of the staff at Pulse. As a result, I decided to reach out to her and ask her if Pulse had internship opportunities. She replied with “YES!!” and I applied for the opportunity immediately. I knew that Jesus was calling me into ministry in some way, so it felt to me as though this must have been it. It was even better to also  be able to use my creative gifts. My heart is for people to know Jesus, so I’m excited to be a part of an organization that wants to share Jesus with others.

My first week at Pulse was full of joy, sorrow, and challenge. I feel so pumped to be part of this awesome group of people. Even over Zoom, I already feel connected with a majority of people. I love the passion that everyone has to serve Jesus. I have appreciated how open everyone is in their joys and struggles. I think the hardest part of the week is feeling a little sad we can’t all be in person. I know Jesus has a plan and a reason for what’s happening right now, and it is a blessing to be part of this team during a time like this. I am also still adjusting to figuring out more of a schedule, but that will come with time.
