First Twelve will meet Feb. 20 and 21 at Long's Peak United Methodist Church, 1421 Elmhurst Dr. in Longmont, CO 80503. The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Feb. 20 with a question and answer session from 6 to 8 that evening. Activities will continue from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Feb. 21.
The first twelve people to join you in starting a new ministry, new church, or new faith community will set
the tone and shape for the future, set the pattern for replicating leadership, and begin a cascade of
invitation. Finding those first twelve people who are invested and committed as leaders with you in
helping start a new ministry is a key initial step in growing into something larger without your vision
burning out or stalling out before a successful ministry launch.
First Twelve is a two-day training event designed to help you gather and grow the first twelve committed,
core people. Combined with 6 months of practical coaching follow-up, you will learn the skills, habits, and
lifestyle practices that will give your new vision the best chance of launching with a team of twelve
committed leaders. Although designed the team at Path1 New Church Starts from principles of new
faith community planting, this training is equally valuable for existing church leaders who want to start
new small groups, new fellowships, new mission outreaches, new worship services, or new gatherings.
