We believe that starting new churches is the most effective way to join God on his mission. We work with various denominations, networks, and local churches to send out church planters locally, nationally, and globally.
local church ministry
This residency enables future ministry leaders to build skills and practices that are unique to an urban center in a college community. Students building off of theological education or existing ministry leaders seeking fresh exposure to city ministry can benefit from this residency.
Internships are available for those seeking to be in local church leaders – whether as a pastor, deacon, or any other ministerial leader. In addition to ministry experience, our church community and leaders give feedback on the calling that our interns are considering. Internships are available to those currently attending college or seminaries and those desiring to complete church-based training through Porterbrook.
Residencies and internships vary in length depending on each individual’s circumstances and goals. Individual learning plans are developed with each person by the mentor assigned to him or her. Paid residencies are possible if the individual is willing to raise the needed funds. Contact us for more information.
