The New York Conference, along with Path 1, is scheduled to host Launchpad training August 2-4, 2018 at the Conference Center. This training, which is detailed in the next paragraph, offers not only the expertise of proven church and/or ministry planters from across our Connection; but, also the opportunity to be paired with a coach for one year.
Launchpad is a training designed for church/ministry planting leaders and their teams. It is specifically designed for teams that already have enlisted twelve or more people as a part of the team seeking to plant a new church/ministry. This is not simply that there are twelve folks interested in attending or checking things out once worship launches – we are talking twelve who are “all in” and banded together to plant the church/ministry. While the goal is twelve committed persons, reality reminds us that often we may only have 5-10 who are "all in."
The cost of registration is $100 per person (spouses are $50) and includes meals, curriculum, and the assignment of a coach. If the Lord has laid a vision on your soul, this is the place to be! To register, please go to: https://ny-reg.brtapp.com/2018LaunchpadTraining.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our administrative assistant, Carol Merante at (firstname.lastname@example.org) or (914) 615-2228. Hoping to see you there...Shalom!
Grace and Peace,
