Residents & Interns

About Us

The Cypress Residency and Internship program is designed to prepare the next generation of ministry leaders for success in life, leadership, and ministry. Residents and Interns will get to experience this through being fully involved in ministry at the local church level. Residents and Interns will receive training and coaching from both young and seasoned staff who are engaged, innovative, and experienced. The Residency is a 1-year program, while the Internship is a 2-3 month program during the summer, fall, or spring semesters.
