CMN Launch

April 11-13, 2018 | $549

Wednesday at 8:30 AM – Friday at 12:00 PM

Launch is a three-day training event designed by the Church Multiplication Network to adequately prepare leaders who want to plant a church or start a new church campus. Launch is the starting point in the process of planting a new, healthy church.

At Launch, you'll learn from our team of high-caliber facilitators and sit around the table with qualified coaches who are ready to equip you for your journey. You'll also receive practical, hands-on training and have the opportunity to engage in creative dialogue with other church planters. When finished, you'll leave Launch equipped for God's call on your life and inspired to take the next step in your ministry.
