The church needs more biblically saturated, gospel focused men of God to serve as leaders. We are in a pastoral crisis in our country. In our own denomination, The Southern Baptist Convention, anywhere from 10-15% of our churches do not have a pastor. The church must do its job to train, equip and send. 


The Journey Church’s Residency Program was born from a desire to train, equip, and send the next generation of vocational pastors to their place of calling through church replant and church replanting ministries. Ultimately, this experience intends to both help Pastoral Residents realize their strength and passions to serve His church and be more sustained and effective in doing so. Our program is designed for anyone who desires the role of overseer as outlined in 1 Timothy 3:1. For selection to the program, the Pastoral Resident will have demonstrated an intent to enter full-time ministry either as a lead pastor or elder.
