The Preston Trail residency program is a paid, 11-month leadership training program hosted in Frisco, Texas. The program is designed to give hands-on ministry experience, personal mentoring and training through an accredited education curriculum by staff pastors with the purpose of equipping the next generation of church leaders.

Purpose:

The mission of Preston Trail Community Church is helping people find and follow Jesus Christ. As a natural outgrowth of our mission, we are compelled to train gifted leaders who desire to serve in vocational ministry. Through biblical training and personal discipleship, combined with real-life ministry experience, the Preston Trail Residency Program is designed to offer this training opportunity.

  • Biblical: We believe the Bible is the Word of God and our guide and authority for everything.
  • Training: Our goal is to train residents by allowing them to observe, participate and then own ministry responsibilities.
  • Discipleship: Our program goes well beyond training in the essential skills needed for vocational ministry, with an emphasis on personal discipleship and spiritual growth.
  • Personal Mentoring: every resident will be mentored by a ministry pastor.
  • Ministry: We believe that ministry is best done in teams and that we are better together than alone.
  • Experience: We believe the best learning comes from real-life experience.
  • Gifted Leaders: Our desire is to invest in gifted leaders who will, in turn, invest in others.
  • Vocational Ministry: The residency is specifically designed for those who feel led to serve in vocational ministry.
