Story Team Residency
Join our team for two years!
Story Team offers two-year, full-time residencies through the Austin Stone Institute. As part of this program you will grow in the areas of:
- Doctrine & theology
- Affections for Jesus
- Practical storytelling & ministry skills
As a Story Team Resident, you will work with Story Team staff, volunteer artists, and other residents to tell stories of how God is moving in the body of The Austin Stone and the city of Austin, Texas. The residency focuses on developing the practical skills required to tell stories with excellence, serve others, and provide pastoral care for the volunteer artists on Story Team.
Filmmaking residents work with the Lead Storyteller and our Film Editor to sharpen their filmmaking skills. This includes shooting, editing, directing, and leading a team of volunter filmmakers.
Writing & Editing
Writing and Editing residents work with our Lead Writer to write, edit, and publish written stories. They will also work closely in managing the projects of our volunteer artists.
Photography residents will work with our Lead Photographer to grow as a visual storyteller. From written stories to image driven films and social media, they will use their skills widely.
Podcasting residents will help the team produce the Story Team Weekly Podcast and tell audio stories in other formats.
