Become a Resident

Our residency program is a two-year residency for worship leaders who want to grow in both the spiritual and practical implications of their ministry.

This program provides leadership experience and pastoral growth as well as musical, theological and character development. In addition to being a part of our team, residents go through our various Development Programs and are placed at one of our 5 campuses with the intention of leading and gaining experience through the various worship opportunities available at that campus.

*All residencies are a two-year, support raised program and include theological teaching through the Austin Stone Institute.


“My time in residency at the Austin Stone became the most formative experience of my life up to that point. Through community and mentorship God shaped me into a better husband, brought humility into my life as a leader, and grew in me a desire to see his kingdom advance.”

— Travis Sterrett, Worship Minister at Redeemer Fellowship, Kansas City, MO
