Made to Flourish is committed to training the next generation of healthy, thriving pastors in the context of the local church. Our pastoral residency network offers resources, peer relationships, coaching, and start-up funding to churches interested in beginning and sustaining a pastoral residency program.

A two-day workshop will guide church teams through the following:

  • Assessing readiness to begin a pastoral residency
  • The 6 characteristics of a Made to Flourish residency
  • Crafting a 5-year and beyond funding model
  • Implementing an action plan

Attendees will hear from practitioners in the pastoral residency field including Kevin Harlan, Tom Nelson, Matt Rusten, and others.


The workshop and accommodations will be at The Rise Uptown. Sessions will begin at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, May 23, and conclude at 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 24. Attendees will cover the cost of transportation to and from the event, including overnight parking at the hotel if renting a car. Made to Flourish will secure hotel reservations for attendees, cover the guest room cost for the night of the 23rd, and provide all meals throughout the event.

For attendees, please note that The Rise Uptown is located approximately 15 minutes from Phoenix International Airport.
