I stepped into residency right out of college, and it was a great experience that helped me better understand myself, who God is, and how I fit into the local church. I learned what it meant to be self-aware, how not to find my identity in a position, and gained a better understanding of how God designed the local church to work. I was surrounded by adults and fellow residents who challenged me in what I thought about work, ministry, and living as a believer and cared for me in a way I had never been cared for before. I am grateful for the lessons I learned and the people I met during that time, and out of the experiences in my life, residency will be remembered as one of the best and most formative.
