S. S. — Children's Ministry

Interests/Passions

I am passionate about children because there is such an opportunity for ministry with children. They believe that they can be anything they want, and I want to encourage them in a positive way to keep reaching for the highest potential that they can; to not give up. The adolescent stage is critical because that's where they begin to become the person they will be - character wise. If I can help them have a good character and teach them to be ethical, as well as give them a godly foundation, then that's what I want to do.

Long term, I want to counsel women and children in sex trafficking because I feel passionate about that. I want to make the people around me more aware that sex trafficking isn't just a thing in other countries, but that it happens here in America. I think that churches also should be more aware of it and find an organization that helps making sex trafficking aware and help them out in any way possible. I would really enjoy helping a church with that and setting up some sort of contact between the two.

Needs:

I am looking for a paid, part-time position in a church or ministry. I will need a place to stay, and possibly help with transportation. I am looking for an internship that will help me build my experiences towards my long-term goal of counseling. 

Experiences:

I am currently working on my Associate's degree through LPC–Ignite and will be graduating at the end of this semester. After that, I plan on getting my Bachelor's degree through Life Pacific College. I have served in children's ministry at Hagerstown, MD for a summer internship and I have helped out at kid's camp. I will be an asset to your ministry because I love children and I love finding their potential and helping them achieve it.
