Launchpad Sustain Cohorts are an 12-month commitment for established communities who need help growing and thriving. Once a month a small group of people (3-5) from across the country are meeting up online to talk through the practical aspects of starting and leading a progressive community. This is for leaders who are currently in the process of establishing systems that ensure their communities will grow and thrive in the long run. 

Each cohort will be tailored to its participants, but one 12-month program could include all or some of the following:

  • Meetings with progressive pastors. Previous guests include pastors from GracePointe Nashville, Left Hand Church in Longmont, CO and more
  • Introductions to progressive partner organizations, including W/ Collective, Newbigin House of Studies, and others
  • Anti-racism and gender equity discussions around setting up systems of governance, leadership, and operations
  • Coaching on communications and outreach, nonprofit legal formation, and other executive details of starting an organization
  • Access to one-on-one coaching to explore practical aspects of church planting and pastoral leaders from pastors, therapists, and entrepreneurs like Aaron Bailey,  Jonathan Williams, Jenny Morgan, and more
  • Theological and spiritual direction for preaching and leading in a progressive context through the support of cohort members and mentors like Colby Martin and Jen Fisher

At the start of each six month period, cohort members will set individual goals for themselves. Launchpad Co-Directors and fellow cohort members will help connect you with people, resources, and ideas to help you reach those goals. 

Additionally, each cohort is invited to attend a national conference in collaboration with Launchpad and one of our partners. This year’s gathering will be a prayer and rest retreat at the Franciscan Renewal Center in Scottsdale, Arizona, co-hosted by Launchpad and W/ Collective.



This can be set up for autopay of four $300 installments every three months. Individual coaching, event registration and travel (optional) are not included.
