Launch & Lead Application - Spring 2020

Ends May 16, 2020


Full course description

Launch & Lead exists to equip people to Launch and Lead alternative forms of Christian community and/or support those who do. It is a two-year competency-based missional training program. Participants take online classes, receive coaching and spiritual direction, meet together for in-person gatherings, and start something new as part of a practicum.

Upon acceptance to Launch & Lead, participants are paired with a coach who is an expert in our curriculum. The coach works together with the learner to create a customized learning path that matches their calling, interests, and strengths. Interested in starting a brand new intentional community? Want to support others who are doing the same? More interested in community development? Leadership? Your coach will be able to match your needs to relevant courses and learning activities that also adhere to our core competencies.

Students will participate in core online classes, monthly calls, biweekly peer group sessions, and four in-person gatherings throughout the two years. Launch & Lead is distinguished by its hybrid approach to distance education. While we take advantage of modern technology to deliver instruction digitally so that it is accessible at any time and in any location, we also recognize the importance of meeting together face to face. Students that begin Launch & Lead in Spring 2020 will meet on the following dates for the in-person gatherings: 

Foundations Workshop (Dallas, TX) - November 5-7, 2020
MWF National Gathering (Asheville, NC) - April 14-17, 2021
Leadership Workshop (Asheville, NC) - November 4-6, 2021
Storytelling Retreat @ MWF National Gathering  (Dallas, TX) - March 30 - April 2, 2022

Tuition for the two-year program is $5,200 (with a $500 discount if paid up front). Tuition includes coaching, spiritual direction, and online courses. For more information about Launch & Lead, contact Robert Bishop at
