Preparing for Ministry Work

We believe the churches of today should be developing more and better-equipped leaders for the churches of tomorrow. The purpose of the Traders Point Residency is to bridge the gap between classroom knowledge and real-world application on the journey of vocational ministry. We will do this through the following:

Hands-On Ministry Experience
We want to immerse residents in a fast-paced, ever-growing ministry context by giving them ownership over weighty projects and responsibilities while coming alongside to help them process their experience through feedback and coaching.

Practical Training
We seek to invest in residents by providing an understanding of how to grow as a disciple of Christ, how to lead themselves, lead others, lead teams, and, ultimately, an understanding of how to engage culture with the Gospel.
