About the Program

The NMC Residency, a two-year program, starts in the months of May, August and January each year. Residents work 20+ hours per week and are encouraged to find other part-time employment while in the Residency Program.
Residents are considered NMC staff for the full duration of their Residency internship to provide the greatest opportunities to grow their leadership and personal development.
Residents are paid a monthly stipend (with housing available for single residents).
Residents are eligible to receive a “school loan payment” grant for every three months a Resident has completed in the program (maximum of eight grants).  This payment is to go directly toward the principle on outstanding student loans, in addition to the resident’s regular monthly loan payment.

Hands-On Experience

Residents gain experience by serving as part of a staff team in one of the ministry departments of the church. The department in which a resident serves is chosen based on experience, team chemistry and desired ministry future.

Leadership Training

Live Monthly Training

Our live monthly trainings focus on developing the heart, head, and hands of our residents. Each of these 90-minute gatherings will have a time of lecture and group discussion. Additionally, based on what they have learned, each resident will give himself/herself an application assignment, stating what they will start, stop, or change before the next live training. They will be held accountable for their assignment during their monthly one-on-one coaching session.

On-Demand Audio Leadership Library

This on-demand leadership library is hosted on our podcast titled, “Twelve Minute Training." Each audio session is packed with practical principles presented by our NMC staff as well as guest leaders from around the country. This library will empower our residents to grow on the go, quickly applying what they have learned to their life and ministry.

NMC Residency Resource Page

Each of our live monthly training sessions are video-recorded and placed on this private platform, allowing our residents to have permanent access to the training they have received. This resource page will also have links to the Twelve Minute Training, as well as other blogs, books, and tools. It will help them grow to a new level of life and leadership.

Life Coaching

Isolated leaders eventually serve out of obligation and skill rather than health and wholeness. This hardens their hearts, hurts their families, and hinders their ministry. To help our residents live and lead out of the overflow of their relationship with God, we offer one-on-one life coaching. 

Bi-monthly One-on-One Personal Coaching.

We want our residents to live and lead from a place of health and wholeness.  Every other month, each resident will have a one-on-one coaching session. We take 90 minutes to cut through all the to-do’s of ministry and get to the heart of who they are and how they are doing.

Bi-monthly One-on-One Leadership Coaching.

Leaders with coaches lead better. Because of this, each resident will receive a leadership coach to meet with every other month. During these 90-minute sessions, we will tackle topics, set goals, and face strategic challenges together.
