The Launch Project 2016

The Launch Project creates an intimate space for active learning where participants are expected to engage their hearts and minds, be challenged by presenters and colleagues, and feel inspired to follow Jesus's call anew.

Each of our three speakers will talk about unique experiences of rediscovering Jesus as a vulnerable leader committed to peace, healing, and love. Drawing from diverse experiences in urban America, apartheid South Africa, and the odyssey of finding faith amidst personal hardship, our speakers will challenge participants to lead from their own stories. It is our hope that everyone leaves The Launch Project with a deeper commitment to launch fresh thoughts, forms, and shapes of ministry. 

A lodging option is available at Log Lodge each night prior to the event. This special event rate also includes a light breakfast $35/Double Occupancy or $55/Single Occupancy and is available by phone (507)346-2494.
