Interns

Interns at the UGA Wesley Foundation are college students and recent graduates who have answered God's calling to step into campus ministry, champion the students at UGA, and serve the Athens community. Along with serving in their assigned ministry areas, interns also take a part in a structured curriculum designed to help them step into their God-given identity and become Christ's ambassadors beyond their time here.

Second Year Interns

THE SECOND YEAR OF INTERNING IS ALL ABOUT INFLUENCE. WE SEEK TO UNDERSTAND WHAT JESUS DIED FOR US TO DO IN TERMS OF REALIZING HOW WE CAN SERVE AND IMPACT OTHERS THROUGH THE SKILLS, TALENTS, AND STRENGTHS THAT WE HAVE BEEN GIVEN.
SECOND YEAR | iSERVE,  STAFF DEVELOPMENT, THE LIGHT
Andrew is passionate about the economic development of lower income areas and the completion of a "Six Seasons and a Movie" for Community. He thinks life would be much better if there was continuous background music in it and if people watched more comedies than dramas. He studied International Policy at UGA and is excited to see the things that God will do through Wesley and in Athens this year!

If you ever need her outside of Wesley, you can also come find her at Jittery Joe's for some mediocre latte art :-)
SECOND YEAR | ENCOUNTER + MEDIA
Ansley is a second year Encounter and Media intern who’s also the official plant waterer of Wesley.
