Summer Interns

by | Jun 4, 2024

It is a great delight to be able to welcome Amelia Hunt and Ben Cleveland to join us as summer interns (through a summer intern programme organised by the International Mission Board). Both of them live in Athens in Georgia (USA). They also both attend Prince Avenue Baptist Church. 

We’re very excited to have them with us over June and July. Whilst with us they are going to:

  • Serve on Sundays 
  • Serve the various activities that we run throughout the week
  • Learn about church life in a post-Christian culture
  • Do some street evangelism with Chris
  • Read a few chapters of LEAD by Paul Tripp with Adam 
  • Support the staff team
  • Eat plenty of food with people/families from the church 
  • And hopefully have lots of fun with us!

Please do be praying that this summer intern programme is a really fruitful experience for both Ben and Amelia and that they are able to contribute to the life of ECC.
