What is 215?

2 Timothy 2:15 says, “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth” (niv).

215 is a Residency program for people who are called and committed to full-time vocational ministry. Residents spend two years at Southeast being developed and equipped to serve in churches and ministries locally, around the world, and anywhere in between.



Residents spend most of their time as part of of one of Southeast's ministry teams being developed in their giftedness, learning side-by-side with a Ministry Mentor, gaining hands-on experience, and making an impact in the lives of people.


Ministry is best done out of the overflow of a heart that is spiritually healthy and thriving. In 215, we will help lay the groundwork for lasting spiritual depth and habits that will sustain Residents in their future ministries.


The Bible informs and empowers all of who we are and what we do in ministry. Whether Residents have prior formal biblical training or not, 215 devotes significant time and attention to growing biblical understanding and familiarity.

Applications for the next Residency Class will open on November 1, 2022 and be available until February 15, 2023.
