One of the last responsibilities of Charissa Acree (before she left to work for the Cabbage Patch Settlement House, beginning today!) was to train a young intern she had recruited to work for the Academy of Preachers this summer. His name: Lance Humbert.
Lance is a rising senior at Butler University, from Sellersburg, Indiana.
He is a marketing major at that well-known institution in Indianapolis. We are delighted to welcome Lance to the AoP team, especially at this time of critical need in the office and with the operations. His duties will include the range of marketing responsibilities, such as:
- managing our Facebook, Twitter, and website presence,
- maintaining the AoP database of information,
- expanding our network of collaboration in Indianapolis in preparation for the 2014 National Festival of Young Preachers,
- researching the feasibility of AoP expansion through an association, chapters, or affiliates, and
- providing on-site assistance in the AoP office at Middletown Christian Church in Louisville.
- Lance will also travel with the AoP staff to Indianapolis on July 16-17 and assist the AoP staff in exhibiting at the National Fine Arts Festival (Assembly of God) here in Louisville August 5-10.
We welcome Lance to the Academy of Preachers. We hope he is the first of many young interns who will bring their talent and enthusiasm to support our great mission: to identify, network, support, and inspire young people in their call to gospel preaching.
