I am thankful to have had the opportunity to participate in the Innovation Launchpad course. I had an idea of what the course would entail, but it was even greater than I realized. It was filled with insightful readings, case studies, tools to take with me into my work, and much more. I am grateful for the gift of this course and have already seen ministry, products, meetings, and more through a sharper lens of innovation. I believe others will too!

Taking the innovation launchpad for me has felt like walking into a mine full of treasures I really needed but couldn't find. The different topics, class readings and TedTalks have reconfigured my perceptions and given me tools that are helping me begin the journey of transforming the community around me. I'm so grateful I took this and I'm carrying all the knowledge acquired and sharing it with everyone in my world. It's too good to not share!
