Greenhouse Launch Week
May 22 - May 29
Launch Week is the hiring, onboarding and training week for new Greenhouse mission staff & church planters. We offer Launch Weeks three times per year (January, May, September) where new staff gather to meet Greenhouse influencers and learn how we train leaders, multiply congregations, and empower movements—following the Holy Spirit for the spontaneous expansion of the church. The Launch Week schedule includes prayer and worship, introduction to Greenhouse values, connection time with key leaders, storytelling history, training sessions on ministry skills, and visiting Chicagoland congregations set in urban, campus, Latino, and black communities. Launch Week is also the Ministry Partner Development training week when new staff learn how to raise support for their ministries. Only those who have applied and been interviewed are invited to register for the full Launch Week.
Explore Greenhouse Weekend
The Explore Greenhouse Weekends overlap with Launch Week, and these shorter visits are the right introduction for interested leaders. Unlike the Launch Week, anyone can register and come for a visit and meet with our leaders to learn more about Greenhouse, our vision and values, and see the ministry in action.
What is MPD?
Ministry Partner Development is the core process Greenhouse mission staff use to raise funds for salary and ministry expenses. Mission Staff learn to share a clear, concise, and compelling story that includes a personal testimony, the needs of a mission field, the gospel, and a direct ask for partnership. MPD training is taught by mission staff who have raised funds themselves and is a key part of the launch week.
