Transitioning from school to ministry: How Teaching Churches Can Help Young Pastors

Wilshire Baptist Church of Dallas, Texas, has instituted a program to help seminary graduates gain an understanding of ministry leadership through a two-year residency program. Elements of the program include a host family, a lay advisory group and a spiritual friend chosen by the resident. In an interview with the Rev. George Mason conducted by Louis Weeks, Mason discusses pastoral residency programs and other ministry-supporting initiatives. The article, "George Mason on a Pastoral Residency Program to Foster a Successful Transition into Ministry," is provided by Resources in American Christianity and offers insight into how "teaching churches" help young pastors transition into their role as ministers.
