On August 5th, Blair Riddle completed her KBF Missions Internship. Blair served KBF well for twelve weeks this summer in numerous capacities. The goal of the internship is to provide a space for a young college student/seminarian to work alongside the KBF Associate Coordinator for Missions and engage with moderate Baptist life in Kentucky. The internship serves as a place for learning, connection and exploration into the various possibilities for ministry through KBF/CBF life.
Because of her time working as the KBF Intern, Blair has been exposed to ministry opportunities such as Extreme Build in McCreary County, Disaster Response in Middlesboro, summer church groups in Nada/Owlsey County, as well as a variety of local church missions. Blair's summer project required her to assist Josh and the Mission Work Group in compiling information from KBF churches regarding their local missions involvement.
Through her efforts, KBF has the beginnings of a usable Missions Asset Map which will allow churches to resource one another through the KBF website. (More information about the Missions Asset Map will be available this fall). KBF is grateful to Blair for her hard work and leadership this summer and sends her back to Hope College (Michigan) with God's blessings as she embarks upon her senior year.
*The KBF Missions Internship program is typically 12 weeks each spring, summer, and fall. If you are interested in learning more about the KBF Missions Internship, please contact Josh Speight at firstname.lastname@example.org
