The Residency Day launched with an equipping session. LPU President Angie Richey, LMFT, gave an overview of Gen Z, and Brian James McMahon, M.S., LMFT, shared on this generation’s emotional and mental health needs. Next, Dr. Tammy Dunahoo taught about the value of establishing a growth culture at a Residency site. The second half of the day consisted of Residency Stations, where current students connected with Residency Site leaders to hear more about each ministry opportunity. It concluded with a night of laughter, fun, and friendship as students formed relationships with valuable networks. Spring preview began the next day.

“Being on campus for the LPU-VA residency day gave me hope for our future! Students met with various pastors to discuss their future residency and ministry hopes. I’m so grateful to the pastors and churches who are giving themselves to develop young leaders.” –Dr. Tammy Dunahoo, The Foursquare Church
