Launchpad by Nic Harding is a coaching group (huddle) for growing missional leaders, covering 10 topics over 20 sessions

The ‘Discipleship in a Nutshell’ booklet (DIN) is a useful accompaniment to this curriculum, containing many of the tools we refer to here. Copies are available from

This Curriculum is designed for churches that want to roll out a huddle for their lay missional leaders. It would therefore suit all missional community leaders, emerging leaders, and potential leaders.

It will form a key part of the church’s leadership pipeline as well as training a cohort of people to be confident missionary disciples.The curriculum takes a potential leader from the basics of mission and discipleship, through becoming a disciple-maker, to leading a group of disciple-makers.

Intended outcomes of this huddle?

Each person growing in confidence and competence to live as a missionary disciple where they live, learn, work or play.

This means growing in confidence to share their faith, find a person of peace, lead someone to Christ, and become a disciple-maker.

Each person developing a strong and effective prayer life, learning to use simple, sticky and reproducible Kx (Kairos Connexion) tools in mission and discipleship

Each person learning how huddle works and being able to use it as a tool to disciple other emerging leaders

Each person growing in the confidence and competence to lead a 3-dimensional group

Since handing on Frontline Church, Nic has taken on the role of Director for both Kairos Connexion (Kx) and Together for the Harvest (TFH). Kx is a national network of leaders and churches (of which Frontline is a part) that are working together ‘to see the nation transformed by the gospel through a movement of missionary disciples’. Nic is involved in networking, coaching leaders, and training churches ( It is the expression of 3DM in England and Wales. TFH is a network of churches committed to reaching every man, woman and child in the Liverpool city region in a 10 year period. Needless to say both these responsibilities keep him pretty busy! Nic’s saving grace is being married to Jenny for over 43 years. They have 4 daughters and 8 grandchildren. Nic is a card-carrying introvert who loves a good book, exploring new places, starting and developing new things, and surprisingly – meeting new people.

Having previously trained and worked as a Residential and Commercial Property Solicitor, working with church leaders may not seem the most obvious segue. But Jennie’s love of learning, her keen eye for detail and ability to create processes and order out of ideas, visions and other people’s plans helped her to bring Kx ideas off the page and into reality.
