Launch 1.0 Recap!

Launch 1.0

October 18, 2018

In October 2018, one hundred and twenty-five courageous leaders from across the South Central Jurisdiction (SCJ) gathered together for Launch 1.0!

Launch 1.0 was the kick-off event for the Courageous Leadership Imperative (CLI) and would not have been possible without the collaborative efforts of the SCJ Bishops and Foundations. We are grateful for the work that was done in order to bring these vibrant, creative leaders together to network, dream, and explore ministry possibilities.

The purpose of CLI is to embolden leaders who are able to stand at what Richard Rohr has called “the edge of the inside.” While CLI's Launch 1.0 was a large group experience, designed to create a network for dynamic leaders, expand imagination for what’s possible, and embolden courage, after this one-of-a-kind experience we will be inviting many of these leaders to go a step further. CLI will offer small group cohorts, consisting of two cohort tracks: A Leading from the Center track and a Leading from the Edge track. It is intended to gather high capacity leaders for learning and networking so that they can 1) expand their courage (and capacity) to innovate and try new things for the sake of reaching new people for Christ, and 2) connect with other courageous leaders from the SCJ for the sake of creating a network of learning and innovation throughout the jurisdiction.

TMF was extremely pleased with the kick-off and is looking forward to walking alongside these courageous leaders in ministry.
