The Launch conferences are designed to offer you the tools and information that you need to exponentially grow your business or career.

As Christians, we understand that all of life extends from what God is doing in us, and some of the topics that this conference addresses are:

Personal Growth



Business Strategy

Legal Issues

Financial Management

Spiritual growth


Business planning

Grants and Funding


Evangelism in the marketplace


Connecting with other Adventist leaders who are making an impact in their professions is an indispensable part of these conferences. In this environment, you *will* be inspired and encouraged!

This is the part of the conference where God speaks to you in creative ways. Problems are solved. Opportunities realized. Relationships are formed.

Business and ministry exhibits from a wide variety of fields will also be on hand to enhance the opportunities available to you.


Christ our savior has called us. He has saved us. He leads us.

It is Christ who has provided us the businesses, ministries and opportunities that we have so that we can bring glory to His name.

There is nothing like the worship among believers with purpose. Powerful speakers, world-class music and passionate believers make for a unique Adventist worship experience like no other!
