The Bay Area School of Ministry Pastoral Residency Program is a unique opportunity for young men and women called to the ministry to gain practical experience in a dynamic church setting over a period of two years. The vision of our Residency Program is to equip and develop the next generation of leaders for a lifetime of effective ministry.
BASOM believes that while seminaries provide a solid foundation in many disciplines, a hands-on ministry experience within the local church provides exposure to the realities of ministry. Our goal is not to replace seminaries but to complement them. Under the supervision of experienced pastoral staff, residents receive a foundation for a lifetime of ministry in a safe and supportive learning environment.
