A
 
Church

Residence
 
is
 
awarded
 
to
 
candidates
 
who

a
 
desire
 
and
 
capacity
 
for
 
church

or
 
regional
 
leadership
 
team

or

Strategy
 
A
 
successful
 
residence
 
is
 
accomplished
 
through
 
Sovereign
 
Grace
 
Ministries
 
partnering
 
with
 
a
 
local
 
church
 
to
 
evaluate,
 
train,
 
and
 
prepare
 
the
 
prospective
 
church
 
planter.
 
To
 
embrace
 
the
 
dynamics
 
of 
 
this
 
partnership,
 
the
 
residence
 
is
 
structured
 
in
 
three
 
parts.

 –
 
The
 
primary
 
context
 
in
 
which

2.
 
Training
 
 –
 
Those
 
opportunities
 
provided
 
the
 
resident

and

in
 
local
 
church
 
ministries
 
that
 
most
 
strategically
 
train
 
him
 
for
 
church
 
planting
 
and
 
pastoral
 
ministry.
 
3.
 
Preparation
 
 –
 
Those
 
endeavors
 
the
 
resident
 
fulfills
 
to
 
prepare
 
for
 
a
 
church
 
plant.
 
The
 
residence
 
is
 
designed
 
to
 
evaluate
 
three
 
areas
 
of 
 
the
 
resident’s
 
life,
 
with
 
an
 
emphasis
 
placed
 
on
 
his
 
capabilities.
