RBC Summer Happenings

Posted On July 03, 2017

Summer months are busy months. Here is an update on what some of our students and graduates are doing.

Christopher Barnard, a sophomore studying Biblical and Theological Studies, will be speaking at the Classical Conversations Homeschool Practicum in Sanford, Florida. His goal is to encourage parents to teach logic to their children, and to give them confidence in the science and art of reasoning well as it is presented in the Classical Conversations curriculum.

Elizabeth Blasiman, a freshman studying Biblical and Theological studies, will begin an internship with Wycliffe Bible Translators in Papua New Guinea. During this internship, she will learn about the ministries Wycliffe has established in many different countries for the growth of the church.

Lydia Brandenburg, a sophomore studying Theology, will travel to Belfast, Ireland to work with Reformed Presbyterian Missions. Her team will hand out magazines, share the gospel on the streets, and minister to the youth in Belfast.

Abe Johnson, a freshman studying Theology, is entering an internship at Neighbor to Neighbor Ministry in Greenville, Pennsylvania. This internship will involve work in neighborhoods with children and families through a day camp and other special events.

Hannah Pacchioli, a junior studying Sacred Music, has been appointed an intern and assistant to the Executive Director of the 2017 Csehy Summer School of Music in Houghton, New York.

Melissa Woodford, a sophomore studying Theology, was accepted to the World Journalism Institute’s journalism program. This program is a unique opportunity for students to get hands-on experience creating Christian media. She is eager to learn how to hone her video production skills, improve her communication abilities, and gain experience in the field.

Our graduates are also pursuing internships and other employment opportunities. Graham Gunden is entering a pastoral internship in Cape Coral, Florida. Zachary Johnson started at Ligonier Ministries as an editorial assistant with Tabletalk, and Josh Phillips is working with Veritas Press in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Both Jessica Woodroof and Tyler Freire will begin teaching positions at local Christian schools.

Our students are entering each of the fields in which they are serving equipped with the knowledge of what they believe, why they believe it, how to defend it, and how to share it. They are seeking to apply this knowledge to advance the kingdom of God in their separate callings. Please join us in praying for our students as they faithfully serve where God has placed them this summer.
