The McKinney Church Residency Program is designed to equip men and women for pastoral ministry and Christian leadership. It is a great opportunity to be developed for a lifetime in ministry while completing your seminary degree. Residents are supervised
by the pastoral staff while learning practical skills as they play a significant role in leading ministry at McKinney Church.
Residents will deepen their knowledge of God and his Word, actively lead and learn in ministry roles, and be personally developed through individualized coaching and oversight. Residencies are available as part-time and full-time support raised positions.
The residency will consist of three primary objectives:
1) Theological Development: Ministry requires theological training and preparation in order to teach and lead well in the local church. All residents will be required to have completed or be actively enrolled in theological training of some kind: seminary,
training given by the Supervising Pastor, or another form of training that meets this requirement. Throughout each year of the program regular reading will be assigned.
2) Ministry Experience and Development: Residents will function as ministry staff at McKinney Church with all associated expectations and requirements. Each Resident will be given some level of oversight and leadership in their ministry area of focus (i.e.
College Ministry, Youth, etc.) at McKinney Church in order to gain meaningful experience and practice spiritual leadership. Professional skills such as church administration, leading teams, event planning, and public teaching will be strategically developed.
3) Personal Coaching: Growth from theological training and ministry development is best captured through personal coaching and mentorship. Residents will meet weekly with a Pastor/Coach regarding their personal life (character, affections for Christ, personal
maturity, life decisions) and ministry development. These coaching sessions will be both individual and in groups of residents in order to shape and mold a deeper understanding of Christian ministry.
Residency opportunities are currently available in our College, Youth, and Adult Ministries.
