Campus Crusade for Christ encourages college students to experience being a Campus Ministry intern where you commit yourself one year to let God to do something powerful in your life.



Following is an interview CCC held with two CCC Campus Ministry interns from Baylor University:



Lauren Falcon


Graduate of Texas A&M University


Bachelors degree in Anthropology



What have you learned about God while being an intern?


“That He is always faithful to test and refine us to make us who He wants us to be. People always say that He won't give us more than we can handle. But, I believe that He gives us more than we can handle by ourselves so we'll depend on Him.”



What have you learned about ministry and being a missionary?


“That it is more fulfilling than any other job I have ever had. I get to tell people about Jesus everyday!”



What is one memorable moment that stands out to you so far?


“When another staff woman and I shared the gospel with a girl on campus and she accepted Christ. I thought to myself, ‘This is so simple, His grace is that good.'”



What would be the hardest thing about being an intern?


“It tires you the way no other job will because you are constantly pouring out. It is emotionally and spiritually draining.”




Matt Blystone


Graduate of Baylor University


Bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering



What have you learned about God while being an intern?


“That God provides for us. After college, it was my responsibility to raise the funding necessary to get paid during my intern year and I have never had to raise that much at one time before, but God brought it in!”



What have you learned about ministry and being a missionary?


“I have learned how to share my faith more effectively. Not only that, but I have a better grasp on how to defend my faith to people who are antagonistic or raise major objections to Jesus and Christianity.”



What is one memorable moment that stands out to you so far?


“We had an “Opinion Group” where people can come and share their views on a number of topics and we as believers just listen. Five non-believers were there and having that opinion group will really open doors to gospel conversations with them later.”



What would be the hardest thing about being an intern?


“We share our faith a lot more than I did as a student. So I am constantly having evangelistic conversations and trying to share Christ with people and at times that can be hard and draining
