February 18th,2017 Categories: Latest News

Do you know an amazing seminarian in the DOC or UCC who is about to graduate in 2017 and would love to serve our church?  Tell them about our Pastoral Residency program beginning June 1!

Here at The Park, we have decided to begin our own Pastoral Residency program for a Master’s of Divinity graduate in the class of 2017. This program will last one year beginning June 1, 2017, with the possibility of extending for an additional year.

The Pastoral Resident will work full-time through the breadth of pastoral responsibilities in this exciting, justice-focused congregation seeking to follow Jesus in service to New York City. This will include teaching, preaching, care and justice organizing. Throughout the work, the Resident will have the opportunity to collaborate with other ministers in transition and seminarians who, together will benefit from the mentorship of the more seasoned clergy at The Park. The Resident will work on building ministerial skills and habits to sustain a lifelong call to pastoral leadership. Additionally, the Resident will be supported and guided through the complexities of the Search and Call process for their next position after completing the Residency.
