Residency Program

An immersive, hands on ministry experience.

WHAT’S THE GENERATIONS RESIDENCY PROGRAM LIKE?

You want your life to make an impact and God is leading you toward full-time ministry, and we want to see you succeed in the calling God has given you.

A residency at Generations Church provides you with hands-on experiences, weekly leadership training and mentoring, and an opportunity to actually work, lead, and contribute to the work that God is doing here.

You’ll be an important part of the team while being adopted into our family, helping one more person find and follow Jesus, which is the mission and heartbeat of Generations Church.

MORE ABOUT GENERATIONS CHURCH

Generations is a growing multi-generational church in Northern Colorado. Our mission is to help one more person find and follow Jesus, and we’re all in on that goal. With over 1,200 people gathering each Sunday, we focus on giving people the opportunity to encounter Jesus in a life-changing way. Our team is bought into seeing lives changed by Jesus, and it’s happening, week in and week out.

WORK HARD, PLAY HARD

Part of being effective in ministry is having downtime, and living in Colorado has its perks. Within 45 minutes of Generations:

  • Denver
  • The mountains of Estes Park
  • Boulder, Colorado
  • Fort Collins, Colorado

Fueled by an active and outdoor lifestyle, Northern Colorado offers some of the best skiing, hiking, sports events, and concerts in the country. We also get about 300 days of sunshine a year, with amazing weather year round.

AREAS OF MINISTRY EXPERIENCE

Experiences are available in the following areas:

Kids

Our Kids team works to deliver an experience that helps kids fall in love with Jesus at an early age. With 200-250 kids every Sunday, they play a vital role.

YOUTH

Generations Youth is a vibrant ministry aimed at reaching 6th-12th graders in the Northern Colorado area. We’re big on empowering the next generation, and the teen years are crucial.

CREATIVE

Our creative team focuses on creating experiences that people want to repeat, and opportunities for people to encounter Jesus face to face. Through storytelling, visual media, and environment design, we seek to communicate the message of Jesus’ love in captivating ways.

WORSHIP

Music is one of the most powerful ways to connect to God, both spiritually and emotionally. Our team pours everything they have into creating an atmosphere of authentic and passionate worship, week in and week out.

SPECIFICS ABOUT THE PROGRAM

This isn’t an online class for you to take just to snag an easy credit. You’ll work full time hours and experience real ministry weight. You won’t sit on the sidelines, you’ll be thrown into opportunities to lead people to authentic relationships with Jesus.

Residency will last for 12-24 months, depending on the candidate who applies and their stage of life.  Our general preference is the longer to develop, the better.

Residents are typically defined as a recent college grads who is called to full-time vocational work in a Church setting.  If you don’t fully fit the profile, know we may be able to work with you, so please complete the application process or email us with questions.

The average work week is 40 hours, which typically includes being at Sunday services.  For big events or special projects, extra hours may be required.

We provide housing in private homes of key Generations families.

Each resident will be supervised by a staff member and coached two times per month in their area of ministry. Along with coaching, they will meet twice a month with other staff members to talk about how to live healthy spiritually.  Our desire is to focus not only on ministry skills, but spiritual wellness and development that will help guide you for a lifetime.

Depending on your area of ministry, you’ll work alongside our staff team to plan and carry out the vision of Generations Church. You’ll be included in staff meetings, creative brainstorms, and other developmental gatherings.

Weekly 75-minute Residency trainings will focus on a huge spectrum of leadership topics that will develop you post college graduation in the life of the church.
