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 called and committed to full-time ministry and becoming a 215 leader.

Based on 2 Timothy 2:15, our Residency experience has three focus areas:


You will spend most of your time as part of a ministry team being developed in your gifts, learning side-by-side with a Ministry Mentor, gaining hands-on experience, and making an impact on 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 and pursue holiness of heart and mind.


Whether you have previous formal biblical training or not, we take seriously our calling to study, teach, and preach the Bible, and we give significant time and attention to it.
