Meet the 2023–24 CSNTM Interns

Each year CSNTM invites 3–5 graduate students to intern at the Center who demonstrate a strong proficiency in working with the New Testament and have proven to be excellent students. These promising individuals participate in a year of challenging and enriching activities under the mentorship of Dr. Daniel B. Wallace and the CSNTM research staff. This year, four incredible students make up the intern cohort. Keep reading to learn more about them.

Tonya Slaubaugh

My name is Tonya Slaubaugh. I grew up on a farm in rural North Dakota. I am currently working on my Masters in Biblical Exegesis and Linguistics and hope to work in Bible translation for Wycliffe in the near future. Eventually, I would like to become a professor.

Darryl Yorimitsu

 Hi, my name is Darryl Yorimitsu and I am from Orange County, California. My wife and I recently moved to Texas so I could be a part of this great opportunity to study with the scholars at CSNTM and I am excited to be a part of this next academic year. I am also pursuing a ThM degree at Dallas Theological Seminary with a planned double emphasis in Old Testament and New Testament Studies. My future plans included training in linguistics and eventually PhD work in New Testament studies.

Kenna Curry

My name is Kenna Curry and I am from Dallas, TX. I am currently earning my M. Div and MTS at Perkins School of Theology SMU. I am interested in pursuing PhD work in Septuagint Studies after graduation in 2025. My research focuses primarily on the translation principles of Greek manuscripts derived from Hebrew sources, in particular poetry.

Nicholas Lammé

My name is Nicholas and have been married to my wife Rosie for 21 years. Together, we have four children, Ester (20), Abigail (19), Alex (14), and Natalia (12). I am a pastor and life-long educator. I was a missionary in Costa Rica where he served in Christian publishing and later worked as project manager with the Costa Rican Bible Society where I also worked on translation projects as an exegete and translation officer.

On Thursday, September 21, we will be participating in North Texas Giving Day—a local giving extravaganza—to raise $10,000 to enhance the training of these four incredible students. Every dollar we raise on NTX Giving Day goes to the internship program. Will you join us by supporting Tonya, Darryl, Kenna, and Nicholas?
