GET TRAINED, APPLY TODAY! 

REACH YOUR CITY, CULTIVATE YOUR NETWORK, AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

As a church planter, community engagement leader, outreach coordinator, missional financial advisor, or coach/consultant, new relationships are the air you breathe. You are forever expanding your network, meeting new people, and adding value to those in your life. 

This is because you define success a little differently. You know you're successful when you help others to be successful - that's why you do what you do. And that's why we train teams to host and facilitate Friendraisers for startup non-profits and other missional groups. 

 
We believe hosting Friendraisers is a great way to rub elbows with our neighbors, build partnerships, and celebrate the amazing stuff happening in our city.
— Jeremiah Lideen | Founder, Uptown Church
