Launch is a 10-month experience in Scotland designed to provide next-generation training for church planting and missional leadership. Through multi-day residencies, single-day visits to innovative ministry sites, midweek cohort check-ins, individual coaching and practical engagement with a church plant or project in Scotland, Launch participants will be equipped to lead team-based, missional new churches anywhere in the world.
Why Scotland? While about half of Scots identify as Christian, less than 10% attend church regularly and are actively pursuing their Christian faith, coinciding with increases in rates of alcoholism, depression, suicide, social isolation, and institutional mistrust; and a growing sense of hopelessness and apathy. Launch participants will learn creative approaches to sharing the hope of the Gospel in a truly post-Christian context.
Starting in Fall 2024, you will join Scotland-based participants through June 2025. Your participant cost is £2000.00, not including living and personal travel expenses. You will be expected to raise your own support. You will be offered a homestay throughout Launch, near your ministry site.
Applications are due by end of November 2023.
