Building Into the Next Generation
Tucked down a short hallway just off of the bustling workroom inside Parkside Church, is a small office with several cubicle-style desks that serves as home base for our pastoral interns: Michael Porter, Ryan Loague, and Erik Veker (pronounced vee-ker).
It is a functional space with desks, chairs, and bookshelves, but more importantly, it is a shared space. When they are all in the building at the same time, you may find them here talking together bolstered by the camaraderie they share as each one of them seeks to discern the call to pastoral ministry. For each of these young men, this year will serve as a proving ground as they learn the ins-and-outs of ministry, as exemplified and taught by Parkside’s pastorate.
