Leadership Foundations Cohort 1 Year

East Mountain Residency is a year-long leadership development program whose aim is to develop emerging leaders in Christ-centred community. Our program engages the whole person — head, heart, hands — and includes training in theological education, spiritual formation, and practical life and leadership skills. The residents commit to live and serve together in the East Mountain Community House, situated in the Helderberg mountains just outside the university town of Stellenbosch. We love that our residents come from a variety of nations, cultures, and backgrounds, and this shared living experience allows our young leaders to live, learn, and be formed in cross-cultural community. Our residents gain practical experience by serving with one of our partnering ministries and are paired with a mentor who can walk alongside them throughout their East Mountain journey.
