Pastoral Resident

It is always hoped that a person who has just finished formal theological education will be able to put that knowledge into practice in the context of ministering to one’s first congregation, creating a positive, transformative experience for both the new pastor and the congregation. However, it is sometimes an unspoken and unintentional journey that doesn’t formally celebrate and support such a growth process. In addition, a gifted seminary graduate often finds that his or her practical ministry experiences do not match the needs of churches seeking to fill pastoral staff vacancies.

First Baptist Greenville’s Pastoral Residency Program is designed to address both of these challenges in a two year Residency Program for recent seminary and divinity school graduates. The Residency will provide an intentional supervised ministry experience. Over the course of two years the pastoral resident will engage in various responsibilities and educational opportunities that will expand the resident’s knowledge and skills, as well as deepen their sense of pastoral identity and authority.
