Hey Fletch … I’m looking for a church that could train me as an XP. I’d like to get hands on training about how to be an XP. While I have a seminary degree, it gave me great teaching in Bible. No school seems to be equipping people for the unique role of XP. Thoughts?

DRF—When I was an XP in California, I had four people go through an XP residency program. We loved it because we got to work together and solve problems in real time. They grew in their ability to lead and manage the church.

One resident got hired as an XP at a jumbo mega church. Another became a church planter. Two others are at the church in XP-type roles. 

Right now, I don’t know of anyone who is offering a residency program. There was one started in Fort Worth and I’m checking on its status. There was another in Atlanta and I will also check on it. Keep searching.

Ask your local church if they might be interested in taking you on as a resident XP.
