"What would you say to someone who is considering applying for the PVC Internship Program?"

“Do it. The PVC Internship Program is incredible. I believe that if you are considering the internship program, God has put it on your heart for a reason and you should absolutely do it! It is a great way to grow and figure out what you want to do. Any team you pick, is welcoming and is open to teaching you more than one thing – they become your family and want what’s best for you. Lastly, I want to say if you decide to do that internship, go into it with an open mind and be open to learn anything you can. God will change your life through this program if you allow Him to.”

"What led you to the PVC Internship Program?"

“I was super excited when I heard about the internship that Palm Valley Church provides. I had always had the desire to work at my local church, to be hands on in every area needed, to be knowledgeable on the ins and out of what it entails to make the weekend service happen. Volunteering often was the closest thing to it and getting to know the team I serve with only made me want to be in this environment even more.”
