Angelica Chernysheva is a student at Multnomah University located in Portland, Oregon. She will graduate with a bachelor’s degree in Biblical and Theological studies and a degree in Global Studies with a concentration on Children at Risk. In the future, she hopes to pursue her passion of working with youth and families cross-culturally.
Angelica has been traveling to Klemtu, BC on short-term mission teams for the past six years. In 2016, after being an experienced student on the team for four years, she was given the opportunity to lead the Children’s ministry as a senior in high school. In the following two years of her leadership, she was named as the official ‘Kids Club Leader.’ These opportunities continually challenged her and led her to begin to discover God’s will for her life.
The Global Studies program requires Angelica to participate in a summer intensive internship. With no hesitation, Angelica contacted her friends inside NAIM in anticipation of the opportunity to work as a summer intern in Klemtu. Angelica is thankful and overjoyed to spend an extended period of time in a community she calls home.
