Residency Program Vision

Residents at Declaration Church serve the body of Christ using their particular gifting as they further discover how God has equipped them for ministry and how He will deploy them into future Gospel-advancing assignments. At this stage of our church’s story, residents are specifically invited onto our ministry team to fill specific needs and help build foundational components of our mission in the Brazos Valley and beyond. Residents are full-responsibility church staff members, are discipled, disciple others, and are trained to be sent out.
