Meet Your Interns!

Cameron Craft

Cameron was called to serve at Global Youth Ministry on Fort Mountain during the summer of 2018 while living in Texas. That summer, God awoke his passion for youth and opened several doors to attend the Institute for Global Youth Studies for a 2nd year and to serve as an intern at The Orchard.

Cameron will be travelling home to visit family in Arkansas during the Christmas break, and is currently writing the drama for this summer's Camp experience. Cam will serve on travel staff, doing camp all around the southeast in summer, 2020.

Brian Silvethorne

Brian was called into ministry and felt the calling to serve as an intern at Global Youth Ministry, while currently being able to assist with the Youth Ministry here at the Orchard. His passion extends into both Pastoral and Youth Ministry, while also having a heart for missions. 

He will be serving as the Campus Intern coordinator at the beautiful Fort Mountain Retreat for all home staff camps this coming summer through Global.
