Church Partnerships

The Launch Network

A collaboration of missional churches devoted to launching their own cross-cultural disciple-makers.

 

Does your church desire to launch its own people to the nations?  Does your church long to provide a pipeline to the nations for those in your membership who feel called to full-time cross-cultural missions?  Is your church sending mission teams overseas year after year?  

Then, why not launch your own people and save money on the cost of all your mission trips by becoming a LAUNCH NETWORK partner.  Your partnership not only provides your church with a missions training pipeline to the nations and a discount on all mission trip pricing, but it enables us to open training HUBs in different key cities across the US where an unlimited number of churches can send their college students, young adults, and families to be trained and launched to the nations.

THE LAUNCH NETWORK is a collaboration of missional churches devoted to launching their own cross-cultural disciple-makers.  Through these partnerships, we are able to provide exclusive benefits to churches like yours who have a missional heart and a brokenness for the nations.  Take a look at the Missions Pipeline info below.

THE NEED

  • 4.5 billion people in the world have little to no access to the Gospel.
  • There are ever increasing numbers of refugees/asylum seekers/immigrants  entering the US each year who represent unreached people groups from many of the nations we’d love to reach.  We believe God has brought the nations to us.
  • Every unreached people group is now living in the US.
  • The entire evangelical world currently has no stated strategic plan to identify, train, and launch its own people to the nations.
  • Many organizations are sending workers home for lack of funding.
  • The missions pipeline IS MISSING!  If we were an airline carrier, we would have some great planes (churches) and  incredible destinations (global mission field), but NO RUNWAY.
  • Our unique missions training & launching HUBs install a runway, a pipeline, from the local church to the nations, empowering you to launch your own cross-cultural disciple-makers.

THE MANDATE

God sent His Son to the earth on a rescue mission to redeem the lost, and thereby modeled the missionary life we are to imitate.  (Jn 3:16)

Jesus’ first command to his followers was to “come follow me, and I’ll make you a fisher of men”, in other words…”let’s go make disciples” (Mt 4:19)

Jesus’ last command to his disciples was to “go and make disciples of all nations…”.  We believe the scriptures are clear that the Gospel spreads and believers are sent by the local church, which is God’s only plan for reaching the nations, not other organizations. (Mt. 28:18-20)

SO WE MUST GO!

THE SOLUTION

By partnering together, we can connect OUR MISSIONS PIPELINE to your church, empowering you with a runway for anyone in your congregation, young or old, to be trained and launched to the nations.  Our pipeline involves everyone from students, to young adults, married couples and families who desire to take the Gospel to the unreached.

If you want to insert the MISSIONS PIPELINE into your church’s missions strategy and empower your church to launch its own people to the nations, then you need to be a part of The LAUNCH Network.

THE REQUIREMENTS

  • INCLUDE – our missions training pipeline in your church’s overall mission strategy
  • INFORM – your church about the missions  pipeline by sharing it…
    • From the stage regularly & in age-level environments
    • From your website & the missions page (we will provide video info with links)
    • At the end of your catalytic events, so people can respond to a call to missions with a tangible way to engage & be trained now.
    • On any printed missions materials
  • INVEST 
    • Pray for God to raise up laborers from your own church who will go!
    • Give to the Launch Network through an annual partnership fee while also supporting anyone from your church who chooses to be trained & launched through the missions pipeline.
    • Send those from your church who are called to cross-cultural missions to the missions pipeline for training & launching.

THE COST

The majority of missions giving worldwide is used to support those already reached, while less than .064% is given to actually train and launch missionaries to the unreached people groups of the world.  This would be like funding our military without providing a boot camp as an onramp or entry point to service.  We aim to change this by providing the local church with a missions training HUB.  The pipeline will accelerate the learning curve for those called to serve, provide the training they need before moving overseas, speed the spread of the Gospel among the unreached (UPGs/UUPGs), and reduce the attrition rate in cross-cultural settings.

Obviously we won’t refuse any gift, but in order to accomplish the goals before us, we are asking each church to contribute the following annual gift, based on the size of your church:

  • < 500 in weekly worship = $2,000/year
  • 501 – 1000 in weekly worship = $3,000/year
  • 1001 – 2000 in weekly worship = $6,000/year
  • 2001 – 4000 in weekly worship = $12,000/year
  • 4000+ in weekly worship = $6,000/year + 1% of annual missions budget.

We do NOT want to exclude any church from access to this opportunity because of finances, so feel free to contact us with questions about any of these amounts or your church’s participation level.
