This summer was a wonderful learning experience for me in my new role as Director of Missions & Recruitment. I had two amazing Interns in Roland & Mattie who I can honestly call friends. As much as they learned from me, they also taught me. From our time I have seen how I can make our internship program better. I want to make sure we as an organization help them grow interpersonally as well as spiritually.
With the help of the interns, MACC Development hosted two mission teams this summer. Cleveland Chinese Christian Church from Cleveland Ohio and Grace Life Community Church from Bristow Virginia were the first groups to stay in our new missions room. They had a great experience being in our community for a week. They really enjoyed being able to spend more time with those from the community during dinner and during our teaching/discussion times.
I am now prepping for next summer by recruiting churches and other organizations to choose MACC Development and Detroit for their Missions Trip destination and recruiting interns.
