Mercy Hill Church Residency
The Mercy Hill Church Residency exists to train, develop, and send ministry leaders to make disciples and multiply churches.
Since the Church is God’s “Plan A” for the world, the most powerful and lasting ministry training is from and for the local church (Romans 12:6–8). Therefore, our residency meaningfully combines ministry experience and personal development with a foundational theological education for long-standing endurance and effectiveness in ministry.
