Several sources to draw from, some temp workers / interns / etc., some long-term member candidates:

Family members of Leadership Team.

Local New Church recruits: Roughly 50 to draw from, most of whom are in their 20’s and 30’s, but other generations are also represented. Many talents (music, advertising, technology, education, business, et al.) to draw from within this pool.

Locals that made contact with the General Church, via and other gateways.

A number of possible New Church young adults may be going to U. T. Austin and other area schools around launch time.

Additional launchers will be recruited from among newcomers at each preview service.

“Ninjas” imported from other congregations, possibly just for the summer or for a semester/year at a time: Bryn Athyn College of the New Church, Laurel (and other) campers, via New Church Young Adults / Pulse, Nexus, congregations friendly to or connected with launch team members (e.g., Bryn Athyn, Boulder, Pittsburgh, Charlotte, Chapel Hill), maybe mission teams from Charity in Action via Anders Hyatt, etc.

Biggest needs: music, greeters, ushers, AV, children/nursery, setup, breakdown.

[This closes out the People section of the Launch Plan for New Way Church in Austin, TX. Yesterday: Adopted Parent Congregation(s). Next: Major Objectives.]
