Welborne will once again partner with the Virginia Annual Conference to host a CX21 Intern this summer.  JoAnn Batteiger will be joining us from June 9 through August 7.  She will be spending 80% of her time working with the Annual Conference, and 20% of her time at Welborne.

JoAnn is in her second year at Shenandoah University in Winchester, and grew up in Richmond at Bon Air UMC.  She served as a Calling 21 intern last summer at Culpepper UMC.  She is in the candidacy process for ordained ministry in the United Methodist Church, and feels called to the order of deacon (click here to learn more about the order of deacon).

As we prepare to welcome JoAnn, we need to secure housing.  She needs a room in someone’s home with access to bathroom and kitchen.  The ideal host will treat her as family, including her in meals and other household events.  She does have her own transportation. If you are interested in helping with JoAnn’s housing, please contact the church office.
