ElijahWelborne’s Connections 21 (CX21) summer intern arrived on Wednesday June 10!  Elijah Ferebee is a native of Brooklyn, NY, and went to college at Virginia State University in Petersburg.  Last summer, Elijah served as an intern at Braddock Street UMC in Winchester in the Calling 21 (C21) program.  He has just completed his first semester at Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, DC.

Elijah will be spending about 80% of his time working at the United Methodist Center in Glen Allen, and 20% with us at Welborne.  He will be engaged in regular reflection with his intern support team: Ben Beverly, Carol Chase, Joy Crawford, Micki Huffman and Sam and Robin Rooks.  You will see Elijah in worship at VBS, and in other places at Welborne. He will be with us until August 10.

Both C21 and CX21 are programs of the Virginia Annual Conference designed to offer experiences to explore and cultivate a call to ministry within young adults.
