Choose to Thrive
A huge weight has been put on our nonprofit leaders. The COVID-19 crisis has left many feeling exhausted and confused about what’s next for them and their ministry. Over the last two months, we've heard the words, “overwhelmed,” “unfocused,” “lonely” or “close to burnout” too many times to count.
If this describes you, then you need the personal and professional support to cope with the psychological disillusionment that's still likely to come and lean upon God to help you rest, recalibrate, and rebuild your cause.
A Cohort to Pivot Your Cause
To help, we're starting a peer network that will help support, equip, and help you and your cause thrive. Each cohort will consist of 4-7 Executive Directors or CEOs of nonprofits who want to grow in character, leadership competency, and the awareness of where God wants them to lead their ministry. It is our prayer that the Holy Spirit will use these confidants to guide and empower your work.
If accepted, our staff will be fully engaged in your cause, offering their insight and expertise through cohort-based training and one-on-one coaching.
People Launching has helped me gain clarity on the core issues facing us, create an action plan, and hold me accountable to be the leader my organization needs so that we can fulfill and expand our mission with excellence.
People Launching was able to skillfully bring out my vision and mission and help me launch my new initiative with clarity on how God wants me to love and serve Muslims in my community.
Through our coaching sessions, we were able to step back to gain perspective on our current struggles and come up with solutions that aligned with our ministry’s mission and heart.
Courage is hard to come by when you feel alone. This experience will equip you in solid biblical instruction and practical business insights. Your cohort will also help point you to best practices and rhythms that you need to thrive in your career long-term.
People Launching has a proven experience in launching nonprofit founders. Now, we'll support you with leaders who can empathize and speak into your challenges with confidentiality, care, wisdom and encouragement.
Leaders and their causes form an inner-connected relationship that shape each other. Being in a community of leaders who are committed to expanding their abilities and skills will help you impact the growth and structure of your organization.
We believe that you're most creative and productive when you operate from the love of God. This experience includes regular practices and disciplines to boost your walk with God and foster a spirit of gratefulness in the work that God has called you to do.
This includes full, holistic assessments on your leadership and your organization. You'll spend one-on-one time with our staff, working through a customized "game plan" with specific actions and goals to help your life, family and cause.
After twelve months, you'll gain peer friendships and consultants that will continue to provide long-term support for you. You'll also be able to give back some of your time, talent, and treasure to future nonprofit leaders.
Starting September 2020
At present, we're planning one remote cohort in September and another in January.
Applications are limited to the primary leader of your nonprofit (Executive Director, CEO, etc.). After we receive your initial application, we'll schedule an interview to learn about your work and make sure this program "fits" your needs.
A limited amount of spots are available so apply soon!
We have revised the application deadline. Please note the application deadlines are August 1 (for the September Cohort) and December 1 (for the January Cohort).
Candidates need to faithfully attend one group retreat (subject to change depending upon COVID-19 guidelines), a monthly cohort meeting (2 hours), and a monthly coaching session (60 minutes). At present, we're planning one cohort in September and another in January of 2021. Please note that we will take a break from all meetings in December and May.
Generous donors have made it possible for you to participate in this ministry at a highly discounted rate. You can pay this rate either monthly over twelve months or all upfront (to save 10%). If money still remains an issue at this time, please contact us early and we'll coach you through how to raise the needed resources.
