Ministry Intern Program
Hi, I’m Hunter Berntson. I grew up in Buffalo, North Dakota. I recently graduated from the Free Lutheran Bible College and am now enrolled at John Witherspoon College in Rapid city South Dakota.
My goal over the next two years is to complete my bachelor’s degree in Christian Studies and from there pursue my calling to pastoral ministry at the Free Lutheran Seminary in Minneapolis. While I’m studying in Rapid, God opened the door for a ministry internship at the Shiloh Free Lutheran Church where I am helping with confirmation, worship, and children/youth ministry.
Hey, I am Isak Olson and I am one of the interns at Shiloh in Blackhawk, SD. I am from the great state of North Dakota. And yes I did say great. Anyways, I am the son of Pastor Tom and Beth Olson and have 5 younger siblings who are always fun to be around. I just got married to my beautiful wife, Phoebe, and we have been enjoying married life a ton! A big passion of mine is teens and kids ministry. I love getting to be with kids whether it’s playing games, having food together, or going through the gospel of John by acting it out. Super fun! Working at Shiloh is one step for my wife and I into our bigger picture of wanting to be in a full time ministry setting someday. As I trust in Christ each day, I know that He is faithful in all things as He leads and guides me.
I’m originally from Minnesota where I lived just outside the twin cities for the past 14 years. My parents, Jason and Jennifer Holt, raised me and my four siblings in the church equipping us to serve the church body in the different ministries. I have always had a desire to serve others while connecting with them through conversations. At this time I will be helping out with Youth Group and Kids Club.
