Pastoral Residencies at Bethany
Applications are now being reviewed
As a multi-location, non-denominational church, our mission is to invite people to God, community, and wholeness, and our Pastoral Residency program is geared towards that mission. We believe the church has a call to invest in the next generation of pastoral leaders as a contributing effort to build future, healthy churches. We hope that employing pastors early on in his/her career in residency positions will give him/her the opportunity to form healthy life patterns of life and ministry while doing important pastoral work in the context of a local church with the resources of experienced pastors and staff members. Pastoral Residents will be mentored and equipped as they develop the ability and skills necessary to be a healthy pastor within the context of the local church. Similiar to a medical residency at a teaching hospital, Pastoral Residents hold a unique position in the church, being both a pastor as well as a pastor-in-training, assuming responsibilities from both rolls while developing individual gifts and unique callings.
We are no longer accepting applications for the 2017-18 Pastoral Residency program. Current application are now being reviewed. Please contact Megan Dobrasz, Pastor of College and Career, for questions about the residency program.
