Hello LPC, my name is Grace Pickell and I’m thrilled to be a part time intern here this summer! I will finish up my undergrad at KU with a Bachelor’s of Exercise Science in December. As of now, I plan to pursue a Doctorate of Physical Therapy starting in the spring of 2018 (if I get in that is :) ). Along with an interest in PT, ministry has placed a calling into my heart that has made my career path questionable. I am pouring my heart into prayer and know that the Lord will provide me with an answer in His timing.

I worked as a Children’s Ministry Intern in an area church last summer and was given the opportunity to participate in multiple trips with the youth as well. I knew I wanted to continue working in children’s and youth ministry this summer, and was ecstatic when Ryan presented the opportunity to help at LPC as well. This summer I am excited to get to know the kiddos and youth of LPC and help them grow in their faith lives, as well as deepen mine along the way.
