First Baptist Church, Jefferson City has a long tradition of hiring interns to serve in our various ministries. We view ministerial internships as opportunities to allow young people explore their calling in ministry and to get their toes wet in church ministry.
This summer, a FBC member, Hogan Brock will serve as our youth ministry intern. Hogan is a senior studying religion at Carson-Newman University. He is engaged to Rachel Clingenpeel, also a senior at CN. Hogan is active as a Faith and Justice Scholar, member of the Baptist Collegiate Ministry and served this past year as a Resident Assistant. His hometown is Rome, GA.
We are excited to have Hogan serve this summer. He will attend the Celebration Singers Choir Tour, Passport Mission camp, and the New York mission trip. In addition to attending these trips he will also help with longterm youth ministry planning, leading devotions, building mentor relationships with our youth and assisting in visitations.
Hogan has been suffering with Crohn’s disease for over a year. Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory bowel disease, which causes inflammation of the lining of the digestive tract. Every few months Hogan has experienced abdominal pains sometimes sending him to the hospital. The past week has been especially difficult for him. This past week he went home to Rome, GA to have reparative surgery on his intestines. His doctor was able to remove a portion of his intestine that was causing the pain. Hopefully having this surgery will allow him a pain-free remission for the next ten years.
As Hogan comes on board this summer we our church members will get to know him. Church members are encouraged to invite Hogan over for meals and fellowship. If you would like to get in touch with him you may do so through email - firstname.lastname@example.org
