We believe God has called Sunbury City Church to be a spring training complex for central Pennsylvania. Just like spring training in baseball is used to allow a lot of players to test their skills, receive feedback, and grow, we want to be a place where men who are discerning their call to ministry, can test their ministry skills, receive encouraging feedback, and grow into what God has for them in the future. Our end goal is to see a gospel centered church in every school district in central Pennsylvania. To accomplish this vision, we provide various kinds of training and support.

We realize that maturity is a process and do not expect every candidate to already possess these qualities, but are growing towards this goal. Additionally the ideal candidate will possess the following characteristics:
Church planters and potential Pastors will need to join the membership of Sunbury City Church. Pastoral Interns, who will not join the membership of Sunbury City Church, must be willing to submit to the membership and eldership of Sunbury City Church.
