The team at AL.com do a great job of covering religion throughout the state of Alabama, and they’ve written another great profile of a UM originated ministry for college students over the summer. They tell the story of Mitchell:

Mitchell is one of 47 QuadW interns working in five cities across the U.S. this summer. The QuadW Summer Missional Internship gives college students a chance to be transformed through eight-week mission work and intensive spiritual study. Sixteen of the 47 interns are in the Mobile area, which is headquarters to the program. The other cities include Montgomery; Pine Bluff, Ark., Kansas City, Kan.; and Kansas City, Mo.

“(We’re) hoping to produce people who understand and practice church in a missional, incarnational way,” said Rev. Don Woolley, a United Methodist minister who heads up the program. “Some will go back and change majors. Some will surrender to a full-time vocational calling.”

The United Methodist Reporter wants to encourage lively conversation about The United Methodist Church and our articles in the belief that Christian conversation (what Wesley would call conferencing) is a means of grace. While we support passionate debate, we cannot allow language that demeans or demonizes others, and we reserve the right to delete any comment we believe to be harmful or inappropriate. We encourage all to remember that we are all broken and in need of Christ's grace, and that we all see through the glass darkly until that time we when reach full perfection in love. May your speech here be tempered with love, and reflection of the fruits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. After all, "There is no law against things like this." (Galatians 5:22-23)
