"The Strategic Ministry Residency Program gave me the opportunity to take classroom teachings and apply them in hands-on experiences. The residency has shaped me to be a better ministry leader as I've learned to utilize my strengths, push through mistakes, grow in confidence, and understand how to work with others."
– Alisha Cox, Strategic Ministry graduate
