It’s that time of year again!
Each summer Campus Outreach chooses a group of interns to help serve the Project and staff, as well as those who are back home: family, friends, and supporters.
We have six individuals part of the Communications and Finance team this summer.
Our finance go-to man this summer is Jacob Klimek, a senior at the University of St. Thomas and also the team leader for the House of Jacob, one of the five teams on Project (Students are put on different teams for the summer in order to get to know more people on Project). Jacob is using his talents to help serve the Project by organizing and handling all of the finances. His tasks include sending out support updates to students showing the amount they have raised and also handling reimbursements for those who have raised more than the cost of Project.
Weston Smith, a first year from the University of Northwestern, is heading up the web content, which includes uploading and managing the audio from all of the talks. This is great if you happen to miss a talk or if you want to go back and listen to it again, and again, and again. Also, for those of you who are not in Myrtle Beach, SC you can go to Summer Training Project website and listen to the podcasts to hear what we're learning!
The woman behind the camera lens is Emily Durenberger, a sophomore from Bethel. She will be using her photography skills to capture all of the fun snapshots from socials, talks, and everything else on Project. You will be able to see all the photos on Instagram, Twitter (follow @COMSTP) and Facebook.
Andrew Brinkmann is a freshman at the University of St. Thomas and will be the videographer at Project. He will record all the memorable moments and action shots such as spike ball and pool-ball. These videos will available for your enjoyment on the Campus Outreach website.
Last but not least, we have our communication interns in charge of the blog, STP portal, and social media. Briana Williamson, a sophomore at the University of Minnesota, is the primary blogger who will also be updating and posting the social media content.
Finally, this leaves me, Jordan McCauley! I am a sophomore at St. Thomas and will primarily be in charge of the STP student portal, MailChimp, Instagram posts, end of the summer support update and blogging once a week. The portal allows students to access information on talks, deals in the area, and announcements. MailChimp is a great tool for those who want to have a template for updating their supporters. The support update is a good final summary for those back home to hear all the exciting things that happened this summer.
Well there you have it, all of the 2015 STP Interns. We are very excited to get into our roles this summer and do our best to serve everyone on Project!
Please pray for us as we take on the various tasks and balancing our work with growing closer to Christ.
