The Residents were recently commissioned at The Table.

It’s summer, and that means there are some new faces on campus! Our 2018 Residents have arrived, so be sure to welcome them to Christ Church!

The mission of the Christ Church Summer Residency Program is to engage college students in meaningful ministry as they explore their identity and callings. Each intern serves directly in one of the departments at the church and takes classes twice a week.

The classroom component is a unique feature of the Residency Program that sets it apart from other internships. By combining classroom experience with a ministry internship, students apply what they learn in real time. Classes include lessons on theology, practical ministry, missions and more.
