My residency experience at Cypress allowed me the opportunity to learn from a team of high caliber individuals, who taught me what it looked like to love and serve people well. I was able to gain real life experiences, not only in the work I was doing, but also in the training I received, and the relationship spelt with my team.
I learned more in my Cypress residency than I can adequately put into words. One of the biggest things was learning to love and work with people. There is nothing better than hands-on experience when you’re learning how to love and lead people like Jesus.
I absolutely loved my time at Cypress! Getting to partner with God, and do authentic ministry was such an amazing experience, and I am so grateful for every student and staff member.
Meet the team.
At Cypress, I had the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in ministry, while being mentored, and led by so many amazing people. It gave me the chance to find my place in ministry, and find a deeper confidence in where God was calling me. This program made stepping into my calling 100 times easier.
During my residency at Cypress, I learned what it looks like to use my gifts in a healthy family-focused environment with people who want to challenge you to own every outcome while encouraging in guiding you on the way. The Cypress residency changed my outlook on ministry and discipleship.
The program helped equipped me with real ministry experience. There are some things you can only learn when you’re immersed in practical ministry, and this program helped me do that and gain practical experience.
