LAUNCHPAD Training Oct. 1-3, 2015

eventLAUNCHPAD Training for new churches will take place from October 1-3, 2015 at The Claremont School of Theology at 1325 N College Ave, Claremont, CA 91711.

LAUNCHPAD is a three-day training event for leaders and teams planting new faith communities. This training experience will guide planters and their teams as they sketch out ministry plans for the next nine months. Subjects covered will include theology and call, affinity groups, vision-casting, best practices, community networking, bonding with the mission field, fundraising, and leading effective meetings one-on-one or with a group.

This summer celebrates the fifth year of LAUNCHPAD, marked by a major update of the content reflecting 2013 Path 1 road trip interviews with hundreds of church planting leaders across the USA. Presenters include Paul Nixon, Sam Rodrigues, and Emily Reece along with other church planters from the Western Jurisdiction.

Cost is $75 for the planter leader, $110 for the planter and spouse, and $50 per person for all additional team members (up to 4 per project), plus the cost of travel, lodging and meals. We will provide lunch on Friday. Deadline for registration is Friday, September 11, 2015. Register with the form below.
