Chalfont resident participates in Goshen College's Ministry Inquiry Program

GOSHEN, Ind. -- This summer, nine Goshen College students are
participating in the college's Ministry Inquiry Program (MIP), where
they will have the opportunity to work with pastors from a church and
explore their interests in ministry.

A Chalfont resident is among the participants. Erica Grasse, a
sophomore biology and interdisciplinary double major from Chalfont,
is working at Blooming Glen Mennonite Church. Grasse,
daughter of James and Lisa Grasse, is a 2009 graduate of Penn Ridge
High School and attends Blooming Glen Mennonite Church.

The opportunities for MIP participants are vast; students can be
involved in worship planning, worship leading, teaching in Bible and
Sunday schools, leading music, pastoral visiting, community service
and preaching.

The Ministry Inquiry Program is a joint effort of Mennonite Church USA
and the five Mennonite colleges in the United States. The 23-year-old
program enables students from Mennonite colleges to test their calling
and gifts for ministry by serving as pastoral interns for a three-
month term.
