On-site educational opportunities to grow future leaders.

New + Future Leaders

1.0 | Be The Church Internship Program

Interns are college students who are considering a call to ministry. This is a 6-12 month in-the-church program to help students discover and equip them for the call God has on their lives.

Emerging + Future Leaders

2.0 | Be The Church Residency Program

Residents are pastors in training selected to be part of a comprehensive 12-24 month residency that incorporates one-on-one coaching, high-touchpoint leadership engagement, and practical in-the-church training. Using proven tools, resources, and learning opportunities under the guidance and direction of proven church leaders, the Be The Church Residency Program will equip those who have recently determined their call to ministry. These future pastors will gain effective church leadership training while being equipped to expand their spiritual voice and influence to become more effective leaders in the church.

Both interns and residents are housed through the ministries of Chapel Pointe church and Be The Church ministry in Hudsonville, Michigan. In-the-church training may be shared across multiple churches and ministry centers.

Established + Growing Leaders

Kingdom advancement depends on strong spiritual leadership for sustainable church growth.
