Program Overview

Each resident will be developed in their personal life, pastoral vocation, and planting skills through practical ministry, coaching, study, evaluation, and reflection. Residents will write and work through real life case studies, while being exposed to myriad experiences along the way. Every August residents will attend a gathering at one of the three hubs (The Bay Area, New York City, or Charlotte). This gathering will be an orientation, mid-residency evaluation, or graduation, dependent upon a particular resident’s current stage in the program.
