To our team, every aspect of your life is important to us, from your church planting vision to your daily walk with Christ, your marriage, your personal finances, and everything in between.

That said, we understand that nobody is perfect. We want to let you know in advance that our application process can get specific and we thank you for being both honest and thorough.

The list of requirements for application to become a church planter with Orchard NEO is short and simple. We ask that applicants have experience working in a church setting, have completed formal theological training, and either reside in or are willing to move to Northeast Ohio. In all of this, our hope is that candidates grasp both what Scripture says and how to apply it to everyday life.

All applications completed after Mar. 15, 2022 will not be considered for the current year, but instead the following year. The next Church Planting Residency begins Jun. 1, 2022.
