Summer Student Intern (2017)
My name is Rebecca Penner. I am so excited to be interning here at Faith Mennonite Church! This summer, some of the areas where I will be focusing include preaching, worship leading, pastoral care, and connecting with the community through the community garden project. During the school year, I study at Canadian Mennonite University, where I am double majoring in theology and international development; I have just completed my third year of studies. I am very involved at my school, having finished a year as CMU Student Council’s co-director of Peace and Sustainability, and I am looking forward to my student council position as the director of Witness through Service in the fall. I am passionate about constantly seeking a deeper relationship with Christ, and walking alongside others as they do the same. I also love to read, travel, laugh, and get outside to explore nature. I look forward to getting to know the congregation here at Faith, as well as seeing what God will do throughout this summer!
