Meet Our Team

Residents & Interns

Our residents and interns are full- or part-time staff members who commit to their role for a specific season. We are so grateful for the opportunity to provide hands-on ministry and theological training to these men and women who faithfully serve our church family.

Caitlin Courtright

the bridge kids resident

"I serve at Hide and Seek Kids every Wednesday night, and lead a small group of 4th grade girls! My job is to set up all of the classrooms on Wednesday and Sunday mornings so that when volunteers arrive, all they have to do is engage and teach the kids who come! I get the incredible opportunity to meet families and care for their children when they come to different events!"

Jacob Guillot

student ministry Resident  

"I work closely with Jake Handley to plan our Wednesday services and SALT evenings. I specifically work with our high school guys, and if there is a random task to complete or an extra plate of food to be eaten, I’m your guy."

Taylor Heiden

dart resident  

"I get the opportunity to work with the families and children at the Domestic Abuse Resistance Team here in Ruston. The majority of my job is planning events and getting to support families at the safe house."
