Are you a humble, courageous leader with a hunger to grow and a love for the Church? Do you have a strong desire to be a servant-leader for God’s fame and glory in Memphis and across the world? Do you want a comprehensive learning experience that will prepare you to launch your next phase of life? If so, we would love for you to apply for the Fellowship Memphis Pastoral Residency Program.

The Fellowship Memphis Residency Program is a two to three-year commitment, often coupled with the pursuit of a seminary, master’s or doctoral degree. The program functions much like any other professional residency would, giving real-world, practical teaching and training to emerging church leaders. It’s a chance for our residents to do ministry, hone their skills and learn how to be most effective for Christ.

We craft a specifically tailored track for all of our residents so that they receive the experience, mentors and knowledge that are most valuable in preparing them for whatever career or ministry path they may choose. Our aim is to help you identify and implement the gifts and skills that you have been given for the glory of God and the good of this world.
