9-month training groups

Our unique nine-month training model involves trainees living together in an apartment community. Training groups are offered in several locations across the U.S. from mid-August through early-May, and we work with you to find a location that considers your family, job opportunities, counseling needs, and more.

Life together during these nine months involves growing in your personal relationship with Jesus, participating in weekly group trainings, and practicing cross-cultural disciple making. Typically, this is done in addition to working a job or earning a degree. This life-on-life preparation is what sets our training apart and keeps Launch Global workers in the harvest field for good.

The Austin Stone Community Church and Launch Global partnership has flourished these first two years. From the beginning, our joint team has been characterized not only by a shared vision, but also by a shared experience of the sovereign grace and power of our Lord Jesus! Through our teamwork Christ is mobilizing an unprecedented number of His own to the unreached, having sent 31 just in this past year alone. It is no stretch to say that our joining forces is a powerful work of Christ

Kevin Peck, Lead Pastor, The Austin Stone Community Church, Austin, TX

“Launch has powerfully impacted our entire ministry. We have seen people come to Christ, and we have seen our students in Launch challenge and shape other students to effectively reach others, both here and beyond. Launch has been instrumental in our ministry by helping us become more missional in a variety of ways, and by simply becoming more effective in mobilizing our students and reaching others for Christ.”

Trace Hamiter, Minister to College Students, First Baptist Church, Opelika, AL

Launch Global’s stateside preparation for Redeemer Goers has proven to be an essential piece in the training process, producing healthy disciples that arrive in the field better equipped to live among the unreached. Additionally, Launch Global staff play a key role in discipling our church as a whole to effectively share the Gospel within our local community.
