On-site educational opportunities to grow future leaders.

New + Future Leaders

Emerging + Exploring Ministry

2.0 | BTC Apprenticeship Program

One-year ministry areas with a curriculum that is focused on spiritual leadership development. This program is targeted at those in the workforce exploring ministry opportunities.

Established + Growing Leaders

3.0 | BTC 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.

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

Equipping Through Graduate Studies

Masters Partnership Coming Soon

Be The Church is partnering with Cedarville University, an accredited university, to offer a Masters in Biblical Studies (MBS) along with an on-site leadership development program. This degree will provide a detailed look at biblical foundations and a well-rounded framework from within the walls of a growing church.


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