Brentwood Baptist
Ministry Residency

The Ministry Residency is a two-year ministry experience that equips and encourages leaders for vocational ministry and kingdom advancement. This experience prepares the next generation of Christian leaders (i.e. church planters, pastors, worship leaders, missionaries, disciple makers) to lead the church effectively through cohort learning environments, mentored supervision, and experiential ministry.


Equipping the Next Generation of Church Leaders

The Ministry Residency provides a unique opportunity for young men and women called to the ministry in the local church to gain practical experience in a dynamic multi-campus church setting.

For almost four decades, Brentwood Baptist Church has invested in hundreds of men and women who are now impacting the Kingdom of God locally and globally. By virtue of its many resources, strategic location and distinctive approach to ministry, Brentwood Baptist is well-positioned to serve as a teaching and sending church.


Some things are better caught than taught.

Ministry Residents learn ministry in a congregational setting and then reflect on that experience with seasoned practitioners. Just as a teaching hospital provides its residents with further clinical training and the opportunity to practice their trade, so too the Ministry Residency at Brentwood Baptist seeks to provide more intensive ministry training, mentoring, and practical experience within the context of a body of believers.


The journey is better with an experienced guide.

With the guidance of a supervising minister and the collegiality of their peers, residents receive a foundation for a lifetime of ministry in a safe and supportive environment.

The Ministry Residency at Brentwood Baptist allows for a variety of track-specific experiences, such as church planting, pastoral ministry, leading worship, missions, and disciple-making.
