If you’ve followed CSM for any time, you probably know how integral our intern team is in our daily operations. We have greatly benefitted from the help of impressive, talented students passionate about advancing the Kingdom in the Birmingham community. We are amazed at how God always leads these inspiring young people to us and thankful for the opportunity to help them learn more about their career fields. This spring, we have Michaela joining our team!

Michaela is a senior at Samford studying Finance with a minor in Ministry and Missions. Although she’s only been with us a short time, she has already jumped in and helped in pretty much every aspect of CSM! Michaela was initially intrigued by CSM upon meeting Tracy Hipps, feeling his love for the Lord and this ministry. She had been praying for an opportunity to get involved in a local ministry and knew that this was her answer! This was cemented when she learned of our relational partnership model, something she shared that she firmly believes. “I believe we are called first to build relationships and then spread the Gospel of Christ,” she said, “Without a relationship, the Good News is hollow of life-giving change.”  

Michaela is most looking forward to working with our volunteers and forming deep and flourishing relationships with those who visit our campus. We hope you’ll stop and say “Hi” to Michaela if you see her around the office/warehouse!
