Are you a young adult who craves intentional Christian community, but are older than our gap year students? Did you know that Act Five has a second program? Welcome to the Residency Program, a transformational year of life in community, concurrent to our Gap Year, for (mostly) post-college/university age young adults.
The goal of the Act Five Residency Program is to provide a formative community living experience for young adults who are pursuing work or study in the city of Hamilton through shared participation in the Act Five learning community. This is embodied through meals, times of prayer, recreation, practicing hospitality and community rhythms, programmed events & outings, and more. We have space for five to seven young adults to live year-round at the Act Five residence.
Who is this for?
Young adults (~21-30 years old) looking for a community in which to learn, practice and grow in their faith while engaging in their neighbourhood and city.
Wifi & Utilities (coin laundry is additional expense)
Access to multiple shared spaces, large backyard
Weeknight dinners ($150 value per month)
Discipleship & mentorship opportunities, such as monthly events, book/Bible studies, meals, and more
