Hands-On Ministry Training

The Resident Program at Perimeter Church exists to equip young leaders for vocational ministry. We use practical, hands-on ministry experience as a platform for ministry skill development. The two-year program includes theological training, exposure to life-on-life missional discipleship, mentorship, and a full-time job within one of the ministries of Perimeter. Our hope is that each resident would be sent out well-equipped to serve the local church.


Here is the core of what you'll experience as a Perimeter resident.

Perimeter’s mission is to form gospel-rooted disciples of Christ who make and train disciples. As a resident, you will get to experience this firsthand both by being in a discipleship group and having the opportunity to lead others.

Ministry Immersion
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.

Cohort Culture
All residents are placed in a cohort of fellow residents. We believe we are not meant to labor alone, and the cohort provides a place for you to be equipped to follow Jesus and flourish in His kingdom.
