Launch leadership



Three, two, one…


Launch Leadership is a ministry of Destiny Church. We are launching next-generation leaders and Christ-followers into local church ministry, and beyond, with cohort-based church residencies and internships that prepare people for a lifetime of Jesus-centered ministry, in the church, in sports, in the arts, the marketplace and community.


Our Residency Program is a two-year experience that provides college graduates with leadership training, practical ministry and/or marketplace experience in a sports context, and continuing education  through a master's degree through Crown College's online program, the Alliance Center for Leadership Development's School of Ministry, or the LEAD Program. Our Internship Program is similar, but with shorter timeframes based on student availability and our needs, and without online academic study. We are looking for people who desire to integrate life and faith, are excited to learn, and be developed holistically.
