Residency

Our mission is to produce ministry leaders through an intensive one-year residency program that focuses on developing ministry skills, knowledge, character, and passion.

Real Life Ministry Experience

Each resident has real ministry responsibilities. This is not a “shadowing” program where the participants observe our staff at work, nor is it an “assistantship” where the participants do the menial tasks of the ministry. Residents carry out essential ministry responsibilities as a part of the ongoing ministry at Fellowship.

Class

Residents will take classes that equip them for life and ministry. Topics change quarterly and include classes such as Survey of Theology, Biblical finances, Life's Healing Choices, and practical ministry.

Mentoring

Every resident will be paired with a mentor suited to their walk-of-life and ministry. Mentors will meet with their residents regularly, and pursue spiritual health together.

Community

Christ-centered community and relationships are essential parts of spiritual maturity and ministry at Fellowship. Residents will be placed into a small group of peers where they can belong, grow, and serve.

Personal Devotional

The growth of your personal relationship with Jesus is important to us! Each resident is expected to pursue an intimate relationship with the Lord through personal time with God.

How It Works

The Residency is a housing/benefits exchange. Each of the residents live in Fellowship housing rent/utility free while also receiving a stipend for health insurance and other benefits in exchange for a 20 hour work week on the Fellowship staff. The resident will also participate in 10 hours a week of personal development (classes, mentoring, etc.). This leaves time for each resident to work a part time job to provide funds for personal expenses such as gas, groceries, and car insurance. The Residency neither costs nor pays its participants. It should be a debt-free year that adds value to the Fellowship ministry and the resident's personal lives.

Testimonials

Hannah Pogue

"What I’ve loved about being part of the Fellowship residency this year is the multiple unexpected opportunities for growth — every area of my life, from intimacy with God to knowledge to relationships to skills, has been impacted by the leadership and wisdom of the people I’ve gotten to do life with here at Fellowship."

Houston Clifton

"Being a resident at Fellowship this year has not only given me a special opportunity to watch God work, but also to jump in and take part in what He has been doing — it has been such an enjoyable honor!"

AnnaFrances Chancellor

“For me, the residency has truly been a life-shaping year. The Lord knew this is exactly where I needed to be for Him to grow and shape me in ways I never knew I needed. I've laughed till I cried, I've weeped, I've rejoiced; this year has created a space for me to press into the Lord. He has surrounded me with people who love me well, He has shown me my giftings, and He has shown me my desire and passion for His calling over my life. I am so thankful for the way the Lord has so intentionally used this year in life.”

Sarah Newton

“Throughout the residency this year, I’ve learned more about what it looks like to truly depend on God in the day-to-day. All of the fun things I get to do — from spending time with students or leaders to planning upcoming retreats and events — would be pointless if Christ wasn’t at the center. I’m so thankful for all the ways my team and peers have challenged and encouraged me during this season because I’m going to walk away with a more intimate relationship with Christ, and it doesn’t get much sweeter than that."⁠
