This is what the residency is all about. The purpose of the residency is to ensure that that the residents have the leadership capacity and know-how to effectively and competently lead.
Two times per month, the resident coach will meet one-on-one to discuss ministry with the resident to ensure the resident is growing in ministry competence.
Personal development is more about who the resident is than what the resident does. The resident coach will meet one-on-one for personal development with resident to ensure the resident is growing as a person and Christian.
Leadership Training Curriculum
The Leadership Training Curriculum is unpacked during a weekly training meeting and gives valuable insight into different types of leadership. The weekly training curriculum covers self-leadership, relational leadership and organizational leadership.
Winning Staff And Church Culture
Being part of a winning team is contagious. Residents benefit greatly from being invited into a staff and church culture that is thriving and healthy. Within this context, they pick up nuances and attitudes that separate winning teams from other teams.
Each quarter, a formal evaluation process gives feedback to the resident as well as to the resident coach about the residency and the resident’s readiness for pastoral ministry. It also serves as a “catch” for any development opportunities that have been inadvertently overlooked in the other components.
