Whether you are starting a new worship service, launching a multisite campus, or starting a whole new ministry, success often rises and falls on the involvement of the laity. In this seminar, Rev. Dr. Ken Nash will teach the best practices for creating and training a healthy launch team of laypersons. You will walk away knowing the pitfalls to avoid and will have the necessary tools to help each person find their place in the new ministry.

Rev. Dr. Ken Nash serves as the Lead Pastor of Watermark Wesleyan near Buffalo, New York.  Over the past several years, Ken has overseen the launching of fifteen new campuses/church plants around the country with each of them led by lay persons from within the local church.  Ken has become a frequent conference speaker and coach for various ministries. His lively and creative teaching style will keep you engaged in the material and will give you a desire to live out what you have learned.  He is an avid sports fan and adventurist having recently completed a marathon through the Grand Canyon.  He is married to his college sweetheart and they have 4 children.
