The Protégé Team is an intensive spiritual growth, leadership development, and ministry immersion experience at Two Rivers Church in Binghamton, NY. The program is designed to focus on three core areas: character, community and calling. As a TRC Protégé, you will be given the opportunity to learn from innovative thinkers and creators in ministry, participate in the day to day activities of church staff culture, stretch yourself as a leader, and lay a firm foundation for a life-long pursuit of the passion and vision that God has placed on your life. The program is geared toward young leaders who are post-college (or equivalent) up to 35 years old.

As a protégé, you will choose a ministry department to focus your efforts throughout the year. If you love kids- we’ve got them, and we want you to help us create environments for them and teach truth to them! If you love creating environments where community is built and transformational growth happens, our transformation team would love to take your passion even further! Love creating videos? Our creative team wants to invest in your talent to tell the story of God through moving pictures. If you are a worship leader, we would love to pair you up with other talented and anointed worship leaders that want to take your gifts to the next level!

In addition to your department work, you will attend weekly protégé huddles. These huddles are led by Will Hampton (Lead Pastor). You will also have the opportunity to meet with many influential leaders throughout the year. Huddles offer ongoing discipleship training and leadership development in a small group environment that focuses on topics such as Leading Yourself Well, Character Killers, Dreaming God-sized Dreams, Leadership Rhythms, and Dynamics of Teamwork.
