Luke Brouwer, a Nevada City native, joined the intern team earlier this year.
Luke’s family has been involved with CEM for the past several years, and Luke himself has ridden in four Agony Rides. However, it wasn’t until after his first Agony Ride that Luke began to pick up the CEM newsletter and grow more acquainted with the ministry.
Though Luke would continue to ride in the Agony Ride, the thought of internship had never crossed his mind until he received a personal invitation last December.
Since coming on board the intern team, Luke says, “I’ve really fallen in love with this job. Living here has a way of grabbing a hold of your heart...It’s like God hitting you with a 2x4 of love.”
