Residency Program

An immersive, hands on ministry experience.


A residency at Generations provides you with hands-on ministry experience in a ministry area suited for you; access to weekly leadership training; opportunities for mentoring; and the chance to be “given the keys” to take ownership and leadership over actual opportunities that further the mission and vision of Generations Church.

We know that as a young person further exploring your calling in ministry, you want your life to make an impact and to continue to discover the calling that God is giving you for full-time ministry. We are committed to helping you discover and discern more of what God is calling you to in ministry, and we want to help you succeed along the way as you live into His calling.

You will become an important part of our team, while also being adopted into our staff family, as we will join together to help one more person find and follow Jesus, which is the mission and heartbeat of Generations Church.


Generations is a growing multi-generational, multi-site 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 1,500 people gathering each Sunday – between our Greeley, Windsor, and online campuses – 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.


Part of being effective in ministry comes from creating a healthy balance between work and rest. Residents will often have Friday’s and Saturday’s off, and with that downtime, living in Colorado has its perks! Within 45 minutes – 1 hour of Generations include locations and activities such as:

  • Denver (Sporting Events, Restaurants, Shopping Centers, Aquarium, Zoo)
  • Estes Park (Rocky Mountain National Park, hiking, tourist town)
  • Boulder (Hiking, Restaurants, Shopping)
  • Fort Collins (Historic Downtown, Colorado State University)
  • And MORE!

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.


Experiences are available in the following areas:


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.

A residency at Generations will last for 12-24 months, depending on the candidate who applies and their stage of life.  Our general preference is for residents is that the longer they are able to stay, the more we are able to help develop them.

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 are willing to work with you as best as we can, so please complete the application process or email us with questions.

The average work week is around 40 hours, which typically includes being at Sunday services and in the office Monday – Thursday.  For big events or special projects, extra hours may be required, and staff is usually compensated with “off” days or special all staff events during those times.

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.

The work week at Generations Church generally runs from Sunday – Thursday, including Sunday morning services in Greeley and at our Windsor Campus on Sunday evenings.

Depending on your area of ministry, you’ll work alongside our staff team throughout the week to plan and carry out the mission and vision of Generations Church. You’ll be included in staff meetings, creative brainstorms, and other developmental gatherings, while also being given space to work creatively on your own ideas and goals within your ministry area.

In addition to ministry work, residents will also have opportunities for leadership growth and development. 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, and access to mentors will give you a safe space to process through questions and other topics related to life in ministry.
