Welcome, Summer Interns!

Our summer interns start THIS Tuesday, May 19th! We are so excited to finalize summer planning and schedules, which will be done by the end of the week!

In the meantime, meet the 2015 summer interns!

CollinCollin Jones

I’m a sophomore at the University of Kansas and currently a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity. I plan to major in business administration. I’ve been a part of VPC my entire life and have enjoyed working in the child care department, and being a part of the Village youth group. My favorite part about being a youth at Village was getting the chance to serve others on mission trips.

GraceGrace Cantril

I am a sophomore at the University of Kansas. I’m currently studying Visual Communications with a concentration in Marketing. This past winter I ran the Memphis Marathon for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Village Church is where I grew up.  My junior and senior year of high school I was a youth deacon here at Village! I have continued my faith journey while at KU by participating in a Bible study called Discovery, run by College Young Life, and attending church at Velocity Church in Lawrence. I am excited for an incredible summer embracing the Village youth!

HannahHannah Ratliff

I am sophomore Sociology major at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I grew up at Village & am so ecstatic to be working with my church family in the youth department this summer. My    passions include but aren’t limited to: baking, the mountains, bad romantic comedies, travel, dogs of all shapes and sizes, crafting, and Chaco’s. I hope to make many meaningful connections in the church youth’s program this summer and enjoy the fellowship this congregation offers.

NathanNathan Are

My name is Nathan Are and I’m in my third year of studying English at Macalester College.  I grew up at Village and have fond memories of eating leftover communion bread, working as a custodian, and attending every youth event possible.  Live music, Raisin Nut Bran, biking, and electric blankets all share a special place in my heart. Panera always impresses me, and parallel parking remains an elusive skill to which I aspire. But mostly, I’m eager to return to the Village community to see what goofy and love-filled things you teach me this summer.
