Brooke Cobb is Kirkwood's current Ministry Intern. Brooke has accepted to the Young Adult Volunteer (YAV) 2018-2019 Program, a one year faith-based service program for young people ages 19-23 years old. Here's a little bit more about Brooke and what she will be doing as a YAV:

My name is Brooke Cobb I am 23 years old. I have been blessed with the opportunity to be the Ministry Intern at Kirkwood Church, my home church, for Spring 2018 under Pastor Hope. I am learning so many different aspects of work in ministry. Through this internship at Kirkwood, I also felt God calling me to give Him a year of service this next year, even though I didn't quite know what that looked like at the time. 

A short time later, Pastor Hope presented the Young Adult Volunteer Program to me. After applying, I was accepted and assigned to Chinook, Montana! I will be leaving on August 20th to start my journey as a Young Adult Volunteer, and for the next year will be living in Chinook, Montana. I will have the opportunities to work with a preschool, as well as tutoring students in elementary and high school. I will also gain valuable experience while leading youth groups and spending time with the senior citizens in Chinook. 

I can't wait to take advantage of this awesome opportunity to continue to grow in my faith and prepare for my life in ministry. I need to raise $4,000, I have a deadline to raise $2,000 by July 1st. My final $2,000 is due by January 1st. Thank you so much for praying for me. Anyone able to help me out financially is also a blessing to me. I appreciate my church family and friends supporting me as I take this next step in service to Jesus Christ!
