The Launch Experience is a transformational 26-hours in the lives of cohort participants.  God shows up as the designed process unfolds and participants see their lives laid out before them.  Using a combination of tools, reflective exercises, collaboration and strong facilitation - participants begin to understand their past in a new way, the way God has designed them like never before all while the future gains clarity that will impact their lives forever. 

The Launch Experience can be held in a retreat setting, at your church or any setting that has enough space for participants to move around, gather in smaller sub-groups and be comfortable.  One key is getting away from normal distractions and being able to unplug for 26-hours.  A cohort will be given several pre-work assignments to maximize their time together during The Launch Experience.  The pre-work is fairly easy and doesn’t not require an inordinate amount of time but greatly accelerates the overall experience.  At the end of The Launch Experience each participant will have a filled out “Arrow Diagram” that records much of what they unpacked during the first 23 hours along with several key directions for the next 12 months.
