Grace's Training Philosophy

Don't just take our word for it

This is what past residents have said about their time as a Grace Church resident.

"It was a really good experience. I learned so much, and grew so much. After this year I can safely say that I'm on a whole new level spiritually than I ever have been before. This role has forced me outside of my comfort zone, which has contributed to me relying heavily on the Lord and growing closer to Him."


Ryan Smith

2022 Connections Resident

"My goal of the residency was to gain experience working in ministry and see if it is something I want to do long term. Coming from teaching, I was jumping into a new but familiar world. I learned things about myself, my strengths and the type of work I like to do"


Kristen Raney

2020 Grace Kids Resident

"The residency has given me life-long comrades in ministry which I couldn't be more thankful for. God used the program to stretch me, grow me, show off his faithfulness, and give me a perfect "next step" in my ministry career"


Jenny Williamson

2021 Student Resident

"I feel very satisfied with my overall experience with my residency! I feel like I had plenty of opportunities to grow over the past year and also feel like I was able to leave an impact within my role!"
