Recognizing that the transition from seminary to full-time pastoral ministry is challenging, the Warwick Central Baptist Church and the First Baptist Church of East Greenwich (both American Baptist of Rhode Island) are partnering to offer a new seminary graduate a two-year residency program in local ministry experience that will prepare the Resident Pastor for becoming a solo pastor in an American Baptist church.
Through the Pastoral Residency, the churches will seek to build on strong seminary experiences by providing the next generation’s most promising pastoral leaders a special entrance into local ministry. The primary purpose of the Pastoral Residency Program is to enable new clergy to develop the skills and practices — personal, professional and pastoral — which will provide a solid foundation for the Resident Pastor’s ministry into the future.
Full-time salary, health insurance, and benefits included. Application deadline extended – they are now due by March 31, 2014. A full program description and application instructions may be downloaded here.
