Undergraduate Interns: Trading Fear for Courage

As the Undergrad Internship was being promoted, I felt strongly that the Lord was directing my attention to it. I had no idea if I would be “suited” for the internship, but I knew that it wasn’t just my own decision to go for it — God was allowing me the chance to step out of my comfort zone and pursue Him.

God has used this internship as a season of waiting and transition.

 

I knew I wanted to go into entertainment production after college, but that was the extent of it.

Being a Flood intern allowed me to hone in on the skills I knew I had and those I never knew I had but that God brought out in me. As someone who has been attending the San Diego Campus for a few years, interning at the North County Campus sounded daunting, especially as an introvert. And now as a leader at that campus, I can see my growth and increasing trust in God’s plans for me.

A personal highlight was being a part of planning the Christmas Collective at Broadway Pier. The Christmas Collective has always been my favorite thing about Flood, so being part of making it possible as a Special Events Intern was a dream come true. It brought me joy and was a good reminder that He does see me, my passions, and He loves to make dreams come to life.

Beyond my responsibilities, I have appreciated developing meaningful relationships with my supervisors who always looked out for me and affirmed me in my roles. Both as an intern and simply a follower of Christ.

I have been loved so well and every contribution I made has mattered.

 

Through my experiences here God has taught me to be less fearful of what’s ahead and more courageous to act on His promises. My love for Flood has only grown since my freshman year – It has only become more real.
