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 | WORSHIP + DISCIPLESHIP
Hello I am Ashley! This is my 5th year on the Wesley worship team and my first year as a part of the discipleship staff! I am continually amazed by the ways that God is making all things new! He is wonderful and I live my life loving Him! I also really love to learn new things, hear peoples stories, and anything to do with the ocean! You will often find me listening and singing to music, reading a book, or plotting how I will win the television show Survivor :) 
SECOND YEAR | SMALL GROUPS
Hey! I'm Callie! Let's hang out!
SECOND YEAR | DISCIPLESHIP + PRAYER
Carolyn’s starterpack at the moment: her dog Scotty, the holiday of Thanksgiving, walks in Five Points, her coffee order at Starbucks, and Marvel movies.
Carolyn’s life changed in Athens and she’s excited for students lives to change because of God’s goodness and redemption :) 
SECOND YEAR | DISCIPLESHIP
Hi I’m Charlie and I’m happy to work here at the Wesley Foundation.
SECOND YEAR | WORSHIP + INTERNATIONAL STUDENT MINISTRY
Emma is a second year intern who is excited to see God continue taking us deeper in learning how we can worship as an offering! She is also excited to pursue relationships with our international students to learn about their lives and help them feel at home in Athens.
SECOND YEAR | MEDIA
Emma Kate is self-described as a camp girl, Goodreads fanatic and a proponent of sitting outside on a porch whenever you can. An accomplishment she is really proud of is single-handedly finishing eight party size bags of peanut butter M&Ms during one of her summers at camp! Emma Kate is passionate about how God calls His people to be BOLD and is excited to see the opportunities students and other people in Athens get to have through that. :-)

 Holland is passionate about students encountering God the same way he did in college and creating a space for freshman to grow in their faith for themselves.

SECOND YEAR | ADVANCEMENT + DIVERSITY OUTREACH + PRAYER 
I would love to have a deep convo about what you’re passionate about over a game of scrabble or mancala with an iced coffee! Also I’m down to do a book trade as long as it’s not The Magician’s Nephew. — which I know has to also be your fav from the Narnia series
SECOND YEAR | THE LIGHT

SECOND YEAR | CONNECT + OFFICIAL LUNCH LADY
We rely on Lora  to feed us daily both amazing food but also good vibes, fun conversation, and consistent friendship. She has more sass than the rest of Wesley staff combined, but it pairs nicely with her amazing reliability as a friend. Lora could be running a Fortune 500 company by herself, so we are honored to have her as a second year intern.
SECOND YEAR | MEDIA + THE LIGHT
MacKenzie loves driving through the mountains, finding Peppa Pig songs in her Spotify Discover Weekly, and petting neighborhood cats. One day she found a sudden interest in learning to operate power tools and since then she has enjoyed building things and trying out new projects. She particularly likes refurbishing furniture and home design (the best genre on YouTube). MacKenzie believes that if you need encouragement, you should ask God! He has a lot of things to say about you (Psalm 139) and He wants you to be living from your identity in Him every day. It’s okay to ask for encouragement!
Now imagine this: you’re sweaty, exhausted, overheated, and you need to be refreshed on a hot summer day. You’re parched. You’re fresh out of water and desperately craving something to quench your thirst. The best drink for the job is a large spicy Sprite from McDonald’s. It costs $1.05. Try it and then come tell MacKenzie about your experience. She will listen. 
SECOND YEAR | DISCIPLESHIP + MEDIA
This is Marlena! Her hot take is that salad is a breakfast food, she loves one-on-one convos, (especially if they involve coffee from Molly’s), and she’s really passionate about following God in the context of community. If you’re in need of a running buddy, she’s your girl! 
SECOND YEAR | DISCIPLESHIP
some things Megan loves: slow mornings with a big cup of coffee, sunny days outside, and walks with friends- come find her if you’re feeling like walk!! :)

SECOND YEAR | MEDIA + THE LIGHT
Sophia is a second year intern. Some things she loves are: hearing peoples stories, baking, and swing dancing (if you ever need some help she knows the girls and the boys part). She has a list of quotes on her phone about funny things people say, you should ask her about it when you see her.
