Hands-On Ministry ExperienceWe 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 TrainingWe 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.

Global OutreachThe Outreach team exists to be an extension of the Traders Point Christian Church vision of multiplying disciples and churches. We desire to see multiplication, ongoing connection, and strategic mobilization locally and globally. Leadership residents in the Outreach Department will learn what it’s like to serve at a multisite church with this vision and to help put the vision into action.
Groups and DiscipleshipWe believe people grow best when they are connected in intentional relationships with others. Groups are the main place for our people to grow in their walk with Jesus as they learn with others to be disciples that make disciples. Leadership residents will be a part of a team that trains leaders, creates connections, encourages multiplication, and helps us fulfill Matthew 28:19-20.
A Discipleship resident will assist in developing resources for people to grow in their faith including Daily Bible Reading (DBR) and weekly sermon studies for Traders Point groups.
