A young man of robust height and kindly disposition, Ethan Kehrli is most widely known as the driver of “Old Besse” his ancient gray Ford Explorer that you may sometimes see (but most often hear) limping through the church parking lot.
Now we will know him by a different name, that name will be… Ethan: The Activate Intern. That’s high praise.
“Why?” You might ask.
ACTIVATE is our hybrid intern program in which we get the opportunity to pour into the next generation. ACTIVATE involves working ministry hours while taking credit hours from LPC to teach these young people about ministry and leadership.
We are super excited to begin our third year of ACTIVATE with Ethan on board. We are also proud of him for being willing to give time to grow as a leader in Christ. This program is super involved; the interns will invest numerous hours and is no small commitment, especially as he is taking classes at COC concurrently.
Ethan looks forward to getting to some “hands-on” experience and developing his own leadership skills.
A recent high school graduate, and an Eagle Scout (no small feat), Ethan is a multi-talented fellow. He has participated in our CHAMPS, UTURN, and Men’s ministries and has been highly active in all of them.
Ethan is known for both his friendliness and his humor, he is a self-titled “technology nerd” as he loves gaming.
Ethan also enjoys spending time with friends. He also has been known to spend time in the outdoors, and he (in fact) just spent his summer working at Camp Chawanakee, a Boy Scout camp near Shaver Lake in the Sierra.
Make sure you take some time to say hi to Ethan during his comings and goings! Whether you see him in the CHAMPS wing, over at UTURN, or driving his gas-guzzling monstrosity.
I’m sure I’ve told you about the cactus that survives on my front porch… but have I ever told you why I keep it?
I have a cactus that sits on my porch. I put it there to move people...
Thank you for the prayers, texts, phone calls and financial gifts. We have felt your love and commitment.
There is so much that has taken place over the last couple of months since leaving The Sanctuary that it’s tough to know where to begin.
For years my understanding of Sabbath was to sit at home, no work, no fun, read and pray all day...so of course, I told myself, “I can’t do that!” …who could?!
I enjoy going on a stroll in our neighborhood, especially during the morning hours in springtime. It’s peaceful and the outside air so refreshing. I’ve read in different fitness articles to “walk like you’re in a hurry” in order to...
I LOVE dessert, I especially love ice cream. It started when I was a kid and my parents started rewarding us for a good report card, or a high grade on a difficult test, or to celebrate milestones in our lives.
All it takes is water! Water makes growth happen and the green hillsides taking shape all over our valley are pure evidence of that.
Have you been to “THAT” bakery and tasted their brownies? Don’t get me wrong there are all kinds of breads and pastries, cookies, croissants, pies, and cakes out there… but brownies, this is what the public really wants!
The Santa Clarita Valley is part of an Arbor Day Foundation movement called Tree City USA, and I’m glad!
Do you remember what you were doing four to five years ago? In 2012 what were you considering and contending for? What was consuming you?
Recently, I was reading the scheduled Growth Journal verses in my Bible. It was the account of God telling Noah to build the ark in Genesis 6.
