Frequently Asked Questions


Who is the Residency for?

The Passion Residency is for young leaders wanting in-depth and hands-on experience in ministry while learning and growing spiritually, personally, and professionally.


Is the Residency a full-time job?

What we do is full-time, but we consider what we get to do a calling. As a Resident, you will be working and serving full-time alongside the Passion team. This means you will not be able to have another form of employment or educational enrollment (apart from part-time seminary upon approval).


What type of leadership development can I expect?

The Passion Residency is made for young leaders to hone their craft and build their character. That means you can expect to learn and grow through the community of your Resident class, through Formations, and in hands-on, on-the- go work and ministry.


What are Resident Formations?

While each track’s Formations may vary, Formations is a weekly team time centered around spiritual formation and personal & leadership development. Formations look different each week, but they are a time for Residents to pray, learn, grow, and be invested in.


Is the Residency paid?

Yes, each Resident will receive a salary and is eligible for benefits including medical, dental, and vision insurance. Please consider the cost of living in Atlanta when prayerfully considering applying for a Residency position with our team. Seminary Track salary: $22,600 | Church Ministry Track, Global Track, Production + Creative Track salary: $28,000


What would I do about housing?

Passion Residents are responsible for finding and providing their own housing. We will connect all accepted Residents so they can work together on possible roommate options.


How long are applications open?

Applications are now closed. Check back this fall for updates on when applications will reopen.
