The RB Residency has been a great experience for me to start my work in pastoral ministry. I have been able to labor alongside seasoned pastors and receive interactive training from them while serving in the context of a neighborhood parish. It is also particularly stimulating to live in NYC—one of the great urban centers of the world. All this has contributed to what has been a rich experience for me and my family.

The church planting residency program is a 2-year intensive program designed to give qualified seminary graduates an opportunity to participate in an urban church-planting environment in order to prepare them for ministry in a similar context. Our resident(s) work closely with the pastoral staff and congregations in the Resurrection network in order to receive theological, spiritual, ministerial, and church-planting formation.
Resurrection Brooklyn aims to have one resident serving at each of our five congregations. If you would like more information about becoming a resident at Resurrection Brooklyn, please contact Senior Pastor Matt Brown by filling out the form below.
