Residency Program

Program and Position Overview

The Grace Chapel Pastoral Residency is a two-year mentoring program designed to train and equip church leaders of tomorrow. We believe that the local church is crucial for helping people discover life with God for the good of the world. Grace Chapel seeks to provide aspiring church leaders who are graduating from Seminary (or have recently) with a healthy church environment to learn, grow, and practice ministry.

In 2019 we launched this new opportunity and welcomed our first resident. We are extremely pleased! Our Residents serve a two-year residency at Grace Chapel as an Associate Pastor, beginning June 1 of each year. The Pastoral Residency, a paid position with full benefits, provides a wide-range of potential ministry opportunities suited to each Resident’s gifts, abilities, and eventual ministry focus, with multiple mentors during the experience.

Requirements and Expectations
