Forge Summer Intern
Trevor Morgan – Forge Summer Internship 2023
Hello friends and family!
Thank you in advance for your time, I am excited to share about all God is doing in my life and I am eager to share about an upcoming opportunity I have this summer.
As many of you know, last summer I went to Forge Equipping (ForgeEquipping.com), and my life hasn’t been the same. I ended up coming to college in Columbia, SC to pursue a Bible degree which was not on the agenda before training. For a long time before this year, I felt like there was more to my life than what I was doing. Every time I started a job, I felt like it was temporary while I waited on what God really had for me. In hindsight, I could’ve been way more intentional and been a better witness for Christ, and instead of waiting on “one day,” I should have been concerned about, “today.” But thankfully God is gracious and allowed me to get to Forge Equipping last summer where I started to better understand God’s mission and how I can be a part of it. And that has continued this semester. As I learn, God has given me more understanding of what I’m doing on this planet and what this place is all about. It’s about God and His Kingdom. Jesus said, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly” – John 10:10.
I don’t understand this as much as I want to yet. But I understand, more now than ever, what the abundant life Jesus spoke about is. Abundant life is found close to Jesus, living daily with Him. Like Adam did in the garden before sin. Adam walked with God. Abundant life is found in serving Christ day in and day out. We don’t find our life by taking, ascending, and being first. We find life by giving, descending, and being last. Servant of all.
It is for this reason that I am planning to intern with Forge. I am eager to serve and share what Jesus has been doing in my life. As a bonus, I will get to spend my summer up close to people who love Jesus and can push me deeper into my relationship with Christ. I am passionate about the mission of Forge; They exist to raise up more kingdom laborers. A kingdom laborer is someone who loves Jesus, loves others, and advances the kingdom everyday, everywhere.
My long-term vision for my life is to see the world impacted for Jesus. I have a particular burden for those who have never heard the good news. I believe God wants people from all tribes, tongues, and nations to be a part of His family! My internship at Forge, this summer will absolutely help me to move forward in this calling.
Thank you so much for your consideration, and prayer.
