This week the Conference welcomed Colin Ingram who will be serving as a communication intern with Franconia Conference and Finland Mennonite Church, where he attends. As a Liberty University student, he is completing a degree in Communication Studies: Advertising/Public Relations. During his internship, Colin will be responsible for writing articles, covering conference events, managing social media, and doing some work on the Conference website.
Previously, he has served two summer pastoral internships at Finland and one at Infinity Mennonite Church in Harlem, New York (Lancaster Conference). From his experiences he has found an interest in preaching, discipling, and visitation. In his time at Liberty he co-hosted a weekly radio show called The Late Night Request for 90.9 FM The Light. Hosting the show required writing and performing scripts for on-air content. Some public relations principles he has gravitated towards are media writing, graphic design basics, and Thought Leadership. Regarding the Mennonite world, Colin has served on service trips with Mennonite Disaster Service (MDS) to New Orleans and Gary, Indiana. At Liberty University he went on two Ministry Exposure Trips to Baltimore and Boston. On the Boston trip Colin observed church planting, taught a Brazilian Church youth group, and street evangelized at Harvard University and in Boston suburbs. In Baltimore he observed ministry reaching women in prostitution and/or sex trafficking. In his free time Colin enjoys exploring new towns and coffee shops.
