Institue Ministry Training Programs

Ministry Training Programs

The Ministry Training Programs at the Institute of Disciple Making are designed to strategically leverage the knowledge and experiences of our vocational ministry leaders as investments in future leaders. These programs vary in formality based on the level of commitment required - with three primary structures available for you to apply for.

Summer Internship

For those wishing to explore a vocational calling to ministry in a more hands-on environment, our summer internship program is perfect for you. The program pairs qualified volunteers with vocational ministry leaders to assist in ministry execution within the church through intentional mentorship.

Pastoral Cohort

For those feeling led toward pastoral ministry, the Pastoral Cohort seeks to provide an environment to study, discuss, and explore this calling under the direct guidance of a pastor. The 12-Month program includes monthly reading assignments and meetings to better understand the biblical foundations of the church and the office of pastor.

Residency Program

For leaders close to beginning vocational ministry in the local church, our Residency Program seeks to invest strategic ministry experience and leadership development. Residents will be entrusted with leadership over significant ministry initiatives at Emmaus Church under the instruction and evaluation of pastoral staff.
