The Gateway Residency is a full-time ministry development program where we are committed to stretching and empowering leaders to explore their calling into ministry while helping us achieve our mission to help people explore God and become a unified community of growing, multiplying Christ-followers.
The Gateway Residency provides life-changing training and hands-on direct ministry experience in leadership and discipleship from seasoned leaders.
If you are eager to find a high-paying salaried position with amazing benefits, then this program is likely not going to be a good fit for you. However, if you are ready to roll up your sleeves, serve under some amazing leaders and gain an opportunity to passionately learn and serve in a fast-paced, Jesus-centered, "come as you are" church, then you are in the right place!
