The Collaborative Residency is designed to train and grow the next generation of urban leaders to impact the world where they live and do ministry. This is a robust learning community that expects each resident to be fully engaged during the process.
All residents are assigned a triad learning community that will meet monthly to complete assignments and report back to the leadership team. Additionally each resident will have a mentor and receive monthly coaching on life and leadership.
This residency requires a fair amount of reading and reflection papers in addition to a personal ministry project to be completed prior to graduation. We ask those who apply to consider the additional stress and time commitment that being in the residency may cause on the normal flow of life.
Our residents gather each month for 9 month over three day learning intensives. All residents are expected to make 100% of these intensive gatherings.
