Lilly Intern Spotlight – Zane and United Campus Ministry

Welcoming the Opportunity:

Late last fall, Zane asked us about pursuing an internship focused on accounting/administration for UCM. He expressed a desire to learn more about how his talents might serve the ministry, how he could become more involved, and give back. It was clear from that conversation that Zane really wanted to invest in UCM.  ~Carol Essen

“I welcomed the opportunity to be a Lilly intern because it is a great opportunity to gain valuable experience and to become more involved in the campus ministry.”


Zane is learning the basics of the accounting system – which he has picked up very quickly. He has also gotten to attend the first training of the year to meet and interact with the other interns. Behind the scenes work isn’t often glamorous, but Zane is faithful and works hard to keep things running smoothly. And for that we are very thankful.

“I am enjoying learning intuit QuickBooks with Carol Essen and getting to know everyone involved with UCM. I have learned that I enjoy accounting more so than I originally expected.”

Looking forward:

We, at UCM, are looking forward to Zane’s continued and increasing involvement in the ministry and his behind the scenes impact on the administrative side. We expect that he will contribute greatly to the availability of reports and other tools critical for administrative decision making. We also look forward to Zane’s interactions with the other interns during training and team building events. Zane is a servant-leader and really loves people. He is well liked by his peers and has a very steady and reliable demeanor. It is a lot of fun to work with him.

“I am looking forward to becoming fluent in the programs used for accounting at UCM. I also look forward to spending more time with the other Lilly interns.”
