Is this a good fit for me?
The Cross Point Residency is designed for individuals who:
- Have or will have completed an undergraduate degree by the time of the program start date
- Possess a clear call to full-time vocational ministry
- Crave mentorship and feedback
- Aspire to grow their capacity to lead within the local church
- Have clear ministry and leadership potential
- Being (Spiritual Development) – We believe that success in ministry flows from a fully integrated follower of Christ. Participants in the ministry residency program will receive training in our staff values and virtues, identification and discernment of their individual calling, and a process of intentional discipleship. Books, readings, and seminars will be assigned.
- Knowing (Theological Development) – Ministry residents will participate in the Pastoral Leadership Track, a 9- month intensive deep dive into theological topics and practical application. Additional books, readings, and seminars will be assigned.
- Doing (Mentored Ministry and Leadership development) – Ministry residents will spend most of their time in mentored ministry. Residents will be placed in a specific ministry area and assigned a mentor that will guide them through the process.
- Creative Team – The creative team is involved in the behind the scenes work that it takes to pull off a Sunday, from video production to communications to worship and more. This team is primarily responsible for creating excellent expressions of the ministries at Cross Point.
- Central Ministries – The central ministries team creates the play, while the campuses run the play. A central ministries resident will pick a specific ministry area and will be involved in leading campus teams to execute the ministry. Options include Next Generations, Global and Local Good, Groups, and more. This team is primarily responsible for clarity, alignment, and support of the campuses.
- Campus Teams – The campus teams are our front line ministry workers, responsible for executing Cross Point ministries in their local context. They are primarily responsible for leadership, relationship, and care at the local level.
