As Chase Oaks staff, we cultivate, collaborate, and celebrate together.
The Chase Oaks Residency Program is a two-year intensive leadership program designed to provide real-life ministry experience, personal development, and leadership training for those pursuing vocational ministry. You will be equipped with both the personal and professional tools for a thriving future in ministry. This is a paid residency for two years at 25 hours per week. The program ends in August. Follow link below for more info.
We serve and develop people, and provide clear direction. We serve people with prompt follow-up, care for people, develop people, and empower people.
We work in teams, protect team health, and invest in team development. We all have specific roles on a team. We are thorough in our team member hiring process, making sure that we hire people who resonate with our DNA and culture. We create team plans, protect team unity, and help each other become more effective team members. We also recognize that Chase Oaks is part of a broader team so we partner with local churches and organizations who are committed to meeting both local and global needs.
We work hard, play hard, and rest well. We plan our work and work our plans (team plans and personal plans). We are intentional about having fun (staff events and team events), and we make sure we stay replenished (weekly day off, DAWG (Day Away with God) days, vacations and sabbaticals).
We are constantly learning from the past, from other organizations, and from the best practitioners. Passport, LEAD, best practice visits, monthly development conversations with team leaders, seeking feedback often, networking, partnering, reading, conferences, etc.
