Equip Residency

There is no greater city to learn and do ministry than New Orleans.

Equip means to prepare, provide, or supply. We desire to see College and Seminary students equipped for the ministry God has called them to. The Equip Ministry Residency is designed for individuals to serve in the church, gain first-hand ministry experience, and participate in leadership coaching. Lakeshore Church is in partnership with the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary Mentoring Program and the North American Mission Board. Equip Two-Year residents can earn up to 32 hours of credit at NOBTS, contact Dr. Bo Rice, brice@nobts.edu for information and credit course approval. These are great opportunities for anyone who has a heart for serving the church or desire ministry and leadership development.

Equip Two-Year Residency

Lakeshore Church will receive six, two-year residents each year. Approved applicants will complete eight of the Equip Residency Competency Modules (four per year) while participating in sixteen POD Coaching Sessions over the course of the two-year residency. Four of the Modules will be required, and the other four are elective. Each semester residents will choose an elective module and will be assigned a required module. Lakeshore Church will provide residents with one book per module, a Kindle, and other resources for the Equip Residency. At the end of each module, residents will fill out a Module Update Form. The template for this form will be provided.

Upon completion of the two- year residency, residents will have an exhaustive ministry notebook of assessments, coaching, and residency assignments for prospective search teams and use in future ministry assignments.

Interested applicants should email the completed Equip Residency Application to gross@lakeshorechurchnola.com.
