The Perimeter Residency was started to help current and future leaders like you develop your God-given potential. It is here that you will grow in an understanding of your gifts and calling by engaging in productive work while you learn.
The Residency was designed after the One who developed leaders best — Jesus — and His model of disciple making. Our vision is that you will graduate from the program a sincere worshipper and lifelong disciple maker.
Here at Perimeter, it is our desire to make and deploy mature and equipped followers of Christ. We want to move into our families, communities and the world, following Jesus’ model of disciple making, with a sense of urgency and intentionality in sharing the Good News that transforms and redeems.
Jesus taught His disciples, personally mentoring them and giving them access to His life. He also immersed His disciples in real-life mission. As a resident, you will experience Perimeter’s thoughtful and intentional method of disciple making and training, receive valuable teaching from ministry leaders in Biblical study and ministry topics, and do meaningful work in a specific department within the church.
One day a week is set aside for training in Bible literacy, vocational ministry, practical life/work skills, team building leadership development and more.
Perimeter’s main focus is transformation through Life-on-Life Missional Discipleship (LOLMD). LOLMD follows the Biblical model laid out by Jesus and how He developed His disciples. As a resident, you will get to experience this firsthand both by being in a discipleship group and having the opportunity to lead a group for students.
The work of a resident is important and purposeful. As a resident, you will work within crucial roles to ensure you grow in your skills and abilities, and the ministry of the church can function to most effectively impact God’s Kingdom.
We think one of the reasons Jesus chose to do ministry and mission with people is because it’s just more fun! There will be times to laugh together and also to encourage and support each other. We’ll have weekly resident lunches, participate in team building activities, take a few field trips and have lots of time to just hang out together. We hope you will develop life-long relationships that will encourage you wherever God’s calling leads you.

Church partnerships, community impact, and member deployment
Community Outreach is the bridge between Perimeter volunteers and the nonprofits and organizations in our community. Our congregation is filled with uniquely designed individuals and families with so many God given gifts and talents to be shared! Our nonprofits and other organizations have need of volunteers with a variety of skills and talents. We help connect the two! Residents will have the opportunity to work with volunteers, connect with our nonprofits and go behind the scenes on many serving opportunities to see what it takes to mobilize volunteers to meet the needs in a community.
This a two-year experience designed for a select group of qualified men and women. All roles are full-time opportunities. If you are a college or seminary graduate, graduating college student, or present seminary student, please consider applying.
