Michael Cornish

My name is Michael Cornish and I am truly blessed to have grown up as a part of the body of Christ at Ames; the foundation that was laid in me while I was growing up has served me well in college.

I am serving my church community (New Life - EMU) as a small group Bible study leader. I am also a tech director and oversee the sound, lights and slides during the worship service.

This summer I have the opportunity to serve as an intern with Great Commission Ministries, the missions organization that trains and equips New Life’s staff. The internship program I will be a part of is designed to develop leaders of leaders. I will work in Ann Arbor and help with New Life’s Leadership Training (LT) program, which draws students from EMU, University of Michigan, Wayne State and others. LT is a time for participants to grow and learn more effectively how to live out the Great Commission. I participated last summer and it was a life changing experience for me. I have been able to apply what I learned throughout this past year, and the sense of community that developed has been one of, if not the best, experiences I have had. There is also an optional week long mission trip to El Salvadore the week before the internship officially starts that I plan to attend. In order for GCM to cover the costs of the internship and the mission trip, I am required to raise 100% of my financial support. The total cost is $8,976. By prayerfully and financially partnering with GCM, you would enable me to actively serve as a leader in the lives of other college students, as well as attend this week-long mission trip. I am asking you to consider giving a one time gift in the range of $100-$1,000. Would you prayerfully consider giving to meet this need? I hope to complete my financial support responsibilities by Friday, April 25. If God is leading you to give a financial give of any amount, you can make a check out to Ames Church and put my name in the memo line. The church will mail a check to Great Commission Ministries on my behalf. Thank You. I look forward to positively impacting future leaders in the name of Christ.
