Through practical training and real-world ministry experience, the Minister-in-Residence (MIR) Program of Scottsdale Bible Church prepares the next generation for full-time Christian ministry while completing a formal seminary education.

This program seeks to effectively affirm a call to ministry and to develop gifts and abilities toward more effective ministry. SBC’s high value of comprehensive theological training has led us to strategically partner with both Phoenix Seminary and Dallas Theological Seminary to offer academic credit to our Ministers-in-Residence toward the achievement of an advanced degree.
