JCB Interns – Sophia Porter and Jaquan Reeves

Sophia Porter

What made you want to be an intern?  I wanted to be an intern because I wanted to learn how a youth group and church works. I want to study Christian Ministries in college, so the internship has been teaching me a lot of tools of working in a church.

What do you see your role at JCB to be?  I see my role to be a friend to others in the youth group.

What have you been learning about God in this season?  God has been teaching me to find true grace and love for my fellow peers.

What is something you do for fun?  I like to eat cheese fries and watch movie trailers (not the whole movie, just the trailer).

What the youth staff sees in Sophia:  Sophia is our mama bear; she leads with a fierce, authentic heart for others. If you know her, you immediately sense her zealous spirit & feel inspired to serve others. She has a creative mind that allows her to see past what is and imagine what could be, while her gift of wisdom allows her to think far beyond her years. It has been a joy to have her on our team and see the incredible legacy she is leaving behind at JCB!

 

 

Jaquan Reeves

What made you want to be an intern?  I wanted to do this internship because I wanted to spend time in a church environment, so I could continue to grow. I want to be closer to God and felt that this internship could help me do that.

What do you see your role at JCB to be?  I see myself to be a role model for other students at JCB and a help to the youth staff as they plan events.

What have you been learning about God in this season?  I have been learning about God’s faithful presence in bad situations. God does not leave us when things get hard. God is who He is for a reason.

What is something you do for fun?  When I am not playing sports, I like to work out and spend time with my friends.

What the youth staff sees in Jaquan: Jaquan is our gentle giant; he leads with a peaceful, quiet strength that others are quick to follow. His life is clearly marked by his pursuit of integrity and humility. He carries a compassionate heart to see and serve others everywhere he goes, with the courage to seek to do what is right every circumstance. It has been a gift to have Jaquan a part of our staff, as we see the incredible effect he has made on everyone around him.
