HOWARD — Chris Ponchot of Mays Landing, New Jersey, started an internship with the Millwood Church of Christ in Howard recently. He will work with the congregation through August.

Ponchot, 19, will experience all aspects of local church ministry, including preaching, leadership and youth work. The internship is designed to equip young men who desire to serve local congregations as preachers.

Ponchot said, “My passion in life is to become a preacher of God’s Word. I have wanted to be a preacher since I was a little kid and saw my dad in the ministry.”
