Summer Ministry and Job Fair gives students options for service
Riverside, Calif. (Feb. 8, 2018)—More than 40 conference centers and ministry groups participated in the Summer Ministry and Job Fair on Feb. 7 at California Baptist University. The Career Center at CBU hosted the event that offered students internships and summer ministry opportunities.
Marc Lemieux, a Christian studies sophomore, stopped and chatted with numerous ministry representatives. Lemieux said he is interested in serving others over the summer break.
“I’ve learned that change for one’s heart and soul comes through service,” Lemieux said.
Valerie Hernandez, a public relations junior, has a desire to develop her faith and
work with children over the summer.
This will be my last summer before graduation. I am looking to grow my relationship with God through service,” Hernandez said.
Emily Miller, an exercise science student, found an internship through the Summer Ministry and Job Fair two years ago. She worked at the Salvation Army’s Mt. Crags and Gilmore Camp and Conference Center for the past two summers. This year she returned to the fair to explore other opportunities for service.
“I’ve learned how to grow in my faith at these camps but also how to work with people,” said Miller of her time with the Salvation Army.
