About Launch!

Enjoy the last days of summer in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina with other InterVarsity students from around the Carolinas! Fellowshipping with God and a community of believers is a great way to begin the school year well. Launch will provide preparation and training for New Student Outreach and follow-up, help small groups get off to a good start, and encourage you in your own growth in Christ in the midst of ministry.

Join us August 11-14, 2022 at Ridgecrest Conference Center!

Ridgecrest is located 15 miles east of Asheville, NC. There will be large group training sessions, Bible study and worship, as well as opportunities for meeting with your chapter.
