PCC MISSION MOMENTS Transforming young adults With support from Presbyterians Sharing, young adult international internships provide opportunities for young people to learn and grow in faith. Interns return to Canada having experienced Christ’s mission in the world, excited to share what they have learned with their congregations and friends. At the end of August, Jacqueline Bannerman will finish an eight-month internship working with our partner, the Reformed Church in Hungary, to support refugees in Budapest. This type of transformative experience influences life decisions. Preparing and supporting young adults and helping them discern the call of Christ in their lives, nurtures leadership in the church. Presbyterians Sharing transforms lives
