The Church Leadership Residency (CCLR) is a residency that blends the mission and vision of Christ Chapel Bible Church (CCBC) with the world-class education of Dallas Theological Seminary (DTS). Together our purpose is to educate and equip the next generation of church leaders to fulfill their calling in vocational ministry. CCLR exists to fill the gap between seminary education and hands-on ministry experience.
CCLR is built upon the strengths of two world-class organizations. By combining the vision and culture of CCBC with the theological teaching and training of DTS, our residency program positions itself as a unique experience that prepares graduates for faithful and effective ministry in a local church context. With the teaching of DTS faculty, such as Dr. Mark Bailey, Dr. Mark Yarbrough, and Dr. Jonathan Murphy (among others), along with the access to seasoned, experienced pastors at Christ Chapel, our hope is that this program will give you the tools you need to fulfill God’s calling on your life.
