The Unlocking the Bible Church Residency gave me the opportunity to experience a breadth of different opportunities in a trusted church with supportive mentors. More than anything else, I learned what healthy weekly and monthly rhythms look like for a pastor and the importance of a daily commitment to the Scriptures. In addition to MOMENTUM, FOUNDATIONS served as an incredible LIFE group and sounding board as each resident took on different challenges in different places. I have come to love my fellow residents. Today, I feel better equipped for long-term sustainable ministry than I did coming right out of seminary.
