The Greater Cleveland Residency and Internship programs (gCLE) will give future vocational ministry persons an opportunity to view the wide spectrum of ministries so they can experience where God will use them, and the way God designed them with their specific gifts/talents. While doing this, they will also identify Godly leadership traits and strengthen these gifts and hard wirings in order to advance the Gospel most effectively. gCLE residents/interns will experience vocational ministry alongside experienced leaders in and around Cleveland. Through hands-on leading, our residents/interns will gain practical experience in areas such as (not guaranteeing) teaching, organizing events, outreach, leading, making disciples, small groups, Envision CLE, Building Hope in the City, worship, worship technology, and more.

Vickrey - webGrace Church has facilitated an environment for me to observe people gifted in leadership and of high character doing ministry, as well as given me opportunities to succeed in hands-on leadership. During my time at Grace, I have been around healthy Christ followers who have been great models for how to serve God and live a life worthy of their callings. It has been a healthy challenge for me to be in a place where the bar is high and the environment is healthy. ~ Jordy Vickrey (Youth Ministry Intern 2016-2017)
