Join us in Scottsdale!

Join us in Scottsdale, Arizona for three days of rest and prayer at the Franciscan Renewal Center. This is the perfect event for your entire church plant leadership team. Be renewed in relationship with others as we explore the practice of meditation and our beliefs around prayer as progressive faith leaders.

This event begins Tuesday morning with breakfast and a light conversation. Tuesday/Wednesday is yours to hike trails, meditate in the gardens, relax by the pool or explore the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. Spend some time getting to know your Launchpad Cohort in person. We will curate some options for engaging in prayer practices and individual/group meditation or conversation throughout. Our time will conclude Thursday morning with worship and prayer together. And there will be plenty of time to explore Scottsdale and Phoenix in the evenings.

We are co-hosting this event with our sister organization, W/ Collective, who will bring experienced pastors of existing churches for their time of rest and renewal. We’ll have opportunity for both groups to mingle and get to know each other.

The world needs more inclusive, Jesus-following, antiracist, love & justice-generating communities.
