You may have heard the term "Summer Students" or "Summer Interns" thrown around a lot lately. Well, that's because these college students do quite a bit of ministry work here at St. Peter in the summer.
Each summer, St. Peter acquires two students from our pastor/teacher training school, Martin Luther College (MLC). One male and one female have the opportinity to spend 12 weeks in beautiful Colorado as interns at church, fetching coffee for Pastor, making copies for the secretary, and babysitting the staff minister. Just kidding. It's so much more than that! The interns have the opportunity to get thrown into real ministry life; a taste of what it could be like when they are called workers. For instance, the pastor-track student assists with worship: preaching the liturgy on Sundays, planning worship, and eventually preaching their own sermon. The teacher-track student gets, well, teacher experince through events like Kids' Nights, VBS, Jesus Cares, and Sunday School. They work together and play a part in virtually every event here at St. Peter during the summer: everything from Bibe Information Classes (BIC) to attending Rocky Mountain Christian Camp in Leadville.
