September 2017
Please join us in welcoming our new Servant Leader Interns:
Dan, Clark, and Jenn!
(from left to right: Daniel Feldhacker, Danny Clark, Program Coordinator Becca Mortensen, and Jenn Buhr)
Daniel Feldhacker and grew up on a dairy farm in Northwest Wisconsin in an area where they say "pop" and "water fountain." After graduating from UW-Eau Claire with a degree in Business Information Systems, Dan worked in the Minnesota Twin Cities area as a Technical Analyst. Now, he's happy to be back in Wisconsin and working with all the great people at Crossways Camping Ministries. Dan enjoys getting outdoors, good food and conversation, and long walks on the beach. He is very excited to learn and grow in his faith here.
Danny Clark, going by "Clark" this year as we have another "Dan" on our intern team, graduated in the spring of 2017 from UW-Oshkosh with a degree in Environmental Science. Clark loves the outdoors and spending time enjoying the beauty of God’s creation. He's an outgoing and energetic person that loves helping people and interacting with them on a personal level. This summer, Clark (or "Danny" as you may remember him) was a Cabin Leader at Imago Dei Village and absolutely loved it. He is passionate about using what he have learned along his journey thus far as a testimony to God’s work in the world. Clark is excited for the next 9 months of the Servant Leader Internship Program to continue to grow in faith faith and discern the path which God has for his future.
Jenn Buhr grew up in central Illinois where she developed a love for playing sports and spending time with family. Growing up, Jenn played softball, basketball, soccer, and track. She attended and graduated from Olivet Nazarene University in 2015 with a degree in Recreation and a minor in Children's Ministry. It is Jenn's desire to one day be a program director of a Christian camp. She is excited to be a part of Crossways Camping Ministries as she knows she will continue to grow in the many facets of camping ministry.
When you see our Servant Leader Interns around camp, in your congregation, or around your communities this year give them a warm greeting! We are thrilled to have such faith-filled, eager, and capable young adults serving in our organization again this year.
