Hannah

I was surprised at the amount of personal development. They really pour in and care about who you are as a person.

Josiah

I've learned more about myself and have been given opportunities to grow through coaching and a controlled environment so I can become a better leader.

Jared

My eyes were opened to all the ways that God has given me passion and equipped me.

Residency taught me to humble myself. I didn't feel like the Lord had prepared me enough to go into full time ministry right after graduation and I've been able to come and learn more.

Jesse

I value this residency because it has provided me practical ministry experience, all the while I am being intentionally poured into and coached in every area of my life. The result is huge growth personally, professionally, and spiritually.
