The Gospel is advanced to the ends of the Earth through the local church.  It is within this context, the local church, that the next-generation of Kingdom leaders are to be trained, equipped, developed and eventually sent out.  The H2O Residency Program is designed to be a transformative environment for future leaders with a focus on church planting.

The H2O Residency Program will be a two year, full-time program, where residents will be immersed in the foundational elements of living missionally:

Residents will receive theological training throughout the residency. 

Being immersed in missional living is a central element of the Residency.  Building relationships, sharing the Gospel, and Christ-centered discipleship will be a key aspect of the training experience.

Residents will be mentored by current campus missionaries with an emphasis on growing in Christ-like character, ministry skills, and doctrine.

The Residency Program is designed to foster an environment of deep spiritual formation:  being transformed and renewed by the love of Christ.
