The heartbeat of the Passion Movement is for 18-25-year old’s to live for what matters most – the Name and renown of Jesus. Through the Passion Leadership Experience, we are making a place for your generation to come alongside our team as we make much of Jesus. In your time as a Passion Resident, you will gain experience in your ministry or field while you develop and grow in the key foundational areas of your specific track.

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.

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

Passion Institute: CORE is a nine-course learning track designed to help every person at Passion City Church be equipped through practical theological discipleship. Residents will be responsible for completing their track’s specific CORE curriculum that is included in Formations – including class assignments, homework, and readings.

You can find more information about CORE here.

While each track’s Formations vary, Resident Formations are periodic team sessions centered around spiritual formation and personal & leadership development.

Yes, each Resident will receive compensation.

The dates of the Residency depend on the track you are a part of. The dates for the Church Ministry, Global, and Production + Creative Tracks are 6/1/21 – 5/6/22. The Seminary Track, being a two-year program, begins on 6/1/21 and ends on 5/5/23 (or end of spring semester).

Applications will close February 25, 2021.

The entire application process consists of 4 stages:

Applicants are not guaranteed to move on to any stage.

Through our partnership with Dallas Theological Seminary, Seminary Track Residents are full-time DTS students while also being a Passion City Church Resident employee. As part of our investment and compensation, seminary costs will be subsidized, leaving each Resident responsible for 25% of their seminary costs. That is approximately $10,800 over 2 years.

Please note that seminary costs do not include books and other miscellaneous expenses.

The Passion Residency is made for young leaders to hone their craft, calling and character through serving in The Passion Movement. That means you can expect to learn and grow through the community of fellow Residents, in the controlled environments of Formations and in hands-on, on-the-go work and ministry.

You can expect the final stage of the application process to conclude mid-April. Please note this is susceptible to change.

Each applicant should only submit one application. In the application, there is a designation noting your secondary position of interest.

Applications can be found by clicking “FIND YOUR ROLE” under each track. There, you will find the Resident roles offered in each track, and a job description and application for each Resident role.
