First Church welcomes Pauline Van Backle who will be doing a month-long internship with Young Adult Minister Kit Novotny from July 13 to August 13, 2017.
Pauline is a Master of Divinity student at Pepperdine University. She and Kit met at a conference for young adults discerning a call for ministry where Kit was leading. She is from Danville and worshiped with First Church while we were at Congregation Beth El.
She will be focusing on supporting the community life of the church, event planning and other activities as the Spirit leads.
She says, “With Belgian roots, a Bay Area upbringing and heart of holistic ministry, I deeply value diversity, equality, and our spiritual well being. I eagerly await joining you on this spiritual journey.”
