FUEL Internship

“I came to Kuriakos with no idea what I was getting into, but I found so much more than I could have imagined.  I have experienced incredible community here: from strong mentors as well as my fellow interns, I have learned so much that I will use in future outdoor ministry positions and anywhere else God takes me.”   --Katie Bode, 2012 intern
