The Residency at MDPC is a nine-month program for men and women with a clear call to vocational ministry. We will use practical learning, hands-on ministry, and mentoring from a pastor or department director as a platform for each resident’s spiritual and leadership development. Residents will pursue theological studies (via seminary or other graduate program) during the program. If you are a college graduate or a current seminary student and feel a call toward local church ministry or ordination, please consider applying.
