Residency Program

Our residency program offers you the opportunity to learn from other ministry leaders, have hands on experience, and be able to use your gifts to share God's love with many. 

We are looking for creative individuals to be a part of what God is doing in New England.  We believe this residency will challenge you as a leader and help establish a firm foundation as you follow this incredible calling God has placed on your life. 

This residency is designed for young leaders who have graduated from college or those in their mid-late 20's who have a heart for the un-churched and want to grow in their leadership.  

The ministry leadership residency program is a partnership between Manchester Christian Church and Restoration House Ministries in Manchester, NH.  This will be an 11 month residency where you will get hands on experience in the most unchurched area of the United States as well as have access to some incredible leaders at one of the largest churches in New England.  

During your time here you will choose the top two areas you want to focus on.  This could be areas such as children's or student ministries, groups, outreach, worship, production or others. 

Housing will be provided and residents will also be given a $250 per week stipend.  

Here's a few reasons why you should consider being a part of this residency:

  • Train at the largest church in New Hampshire (2nd largest in New England).
  • Gain understanding about multi-site ministry at different campuses. 
  • Receive coaching and mentorship in ministry, spiritual development and leadership. 
  • Learn about church planting in New England.
  • Experience ministry outside of the Bible belt in the most unchurched area of the U.S. 

Our 2018 program is now full.  We will begin accepting applications for our 2019 Residency Program.
