Residency Home Shower

A residency home was recently purchased as an ongoing resource for the residency program. This home will not only serve as housing for summer residents but also for year-long residents, as well as, potential church planters that will be moving to the area. In just a few short weeks our residents will be moving to Utah from all across the United States. As we prepare the residency home for their arrival, there are some very important and meaningful ways that you can get involved to help make the residency house a home for these young leaders.

WE ARE CURRENTLY WORKING TO FURNISH FIVE BEDROOMS IN THE RESIDENCY HOME.  

$300 WILL FURNISH A ROOM WITH TWO TWIN MATTRESSES (OR ONE FULL MATTRESS) BED FRAMES, SHEETS, PILLOWS AND A COMFORTER. 

 

If you would like to make a monetary contribution you can GIVE online here.

 

 

Your contribution is a blessing to the ministry that is developing through the Utah Residency Program. We are grateful for your partnership and investment in young leaders!

Summer Residency

Residency is approximately 8-10 weeks (25 hours per week) and includes a weeklong leadership and discipleship intensive with top leaders from across the country who are leading church movements in a variety of contexts. This intensive will end with a weekend of sightseeing in some of Utah's most sought-after destinations. Residency includes housing and a small weekly stipend.
