John Porter

Trinity Presbyterian Church, RYM Church Intern
Fort Worth, TX 

 

John originally hails from the wonderful little town of Nashville, TN where he learned that Jesus' love was really for him and that changed everything. He moved to Fort Worth, TX to pursue the big adventure of life in a new city, meeting new friends, and attending school at Texas Christian University. John graduated in May 2020 (virtually) with a degree in Electrical Engineering and a minor in Economics. Throughout college, God used the ministry of Reformed University Fellowship (RUF) at TCU in powerful ways to drive home the truth of the gospel for John and provided many wonderful friends along the way. During his senior year, he began to seriously consider the RUF internship where he would have the opportunity to serve and love college students on a different campus for 2 years. However, during this interview process with RUF, his home church in Fort Worth made him aware of the RYM Internship and began to discuss the possibility of bringing him on staff as the church's youth intern. After much careful consideration and prayer, this offer simply became too hard to refuse! He loves living in Fort Worth and striving to make the love of Christ known to middle and high school students.

John's participation in the RYM Church Internship Program is funded through a partnership between the hosting local church and his raising support through family, friends, and other local churches.  Please join John's support team HERE and help him be fully funded!
