Ministry Leadership Experience & Vocational Discernment

Who has God created you to be?  How is He calling you to serve Him?  Throughout the residency you will discern God’s leading in community with other residents and leaders.  You will receive both leadership training and well-rounded ministry experience, engaging opportunities both to serve and to lead.

Vocational Discernment

Perhaps you’re not sure what to do with your future.  Or maybe a life in ministry intrigues you. Whatever the case, you will grow in your sense of calling as we listen to what God is saying to you and respond in faith to act upon His call on your life.  We can connect you with experienced, local ministry, business and non-profit leaders who can mentor you and help you grow as a leader. Through discipleship discussions, prayer and meeting with your mentor, you will get to explore what God is calling you to do with your life.

Opportunities for Ministry Leadership

We want you to grow in servant leadership, including both the character and skills.  Whenever possible, we will give you responsibility in the area(s) of ministry you are interested in exploring. You will have collaborative mentoring from a ministry leader throughout your residency.

Youth Ministry - Learn to teach in a way that connects with teens and is anchored in the truths of the gospel.  Help plan a youth retreat.  Disciple teenagers wanting to grow in their faith.  Lead small groups.  Partner with Young Life to help reach teens at local schools who might not otherwise ever experience God’s grace.

Music Ministry - Develop as a leader of worship music for the church and into the community. Calvary Church partners with LaunchPad Studios in Golden to develop worship leaders, train musicians, and to write, record, and perform music that glorifies God. Monthly Open Mic Nights give local artists a venue to test out new songs and meet other growing musicians. How is God uniquely calling you to use your gifting to serve and to shine as a light to the world?

College Ministry - The Colorado School of Mines is an internationally-acclaimed engineering school just across the street from Calvary Church.  You could join us as, every Tuesday, we get 250-400 of them pour through our doors to eat lunch, where they hear the Gospel and engage us in relationship.  You could partner with an existing campus ministry to reach students or help us disciple a college group at Calvary.

Young Adult Ministry - Join our young adult group which meets weekly for Bible study, fellowship, worship, prayer, shared meals and mission.  Make friends with people who may be  just a few steps ahead of you in life, career and faith.

Church Ministry - Perhaps you are interested in outreach, children’s ministry, spiritual formation, pastoral ministry or another area of ministry.  If so, please indicate this on your application and we will do our best to work with you to focus on this ministry area.
