Andy K and his wife, Jamie, did college ministry together for eight years. In 2006, they helped start a mobilization ministry, and now Andy works with Launch Global as the US Director of Mobilization.

Steven and Jenn C. are Chinese-Americans from Austin, Texas, who first felt called to work among the unreached during a short-term trip to Thailand in college. After graduating and working at tech companies, they joined Launch Global staff and led the first international LG team in 2014. Their vision is to train and empower Thai believers to catalyze church planting movements throughout Thailand and Southeast Asia. Steven and Jenn currently serve as the Launch Global Thailand Directors.
Kris M, along with his wife Nancy and their two kids, lives in College Station, Texas where he and his Launch Global team are embedded in local churches in which they mobilize and train young adults. They spent some time serving in Central Asia pursuing church planting movements, and now they train and send others for long-term cross-cultural work.

Nathan J'Diim, who was raised in South Africa as a third culture kid, returned to the US for college, where he met his wife (Carol) forty-three years ago. After seminary, he pastored a church in Arizona for over twenty years and, together with Carol, raised six wonderful children. Nathan stepped down from Senior Pastor to Associate to follow his dream of preparing and sending beautiful feet to the unreached world. TOAG (a 9-month training program) was birthed in the process, and hundreds have headed to the Muslim world in the past seventeen years. He also serves on a foundation which sends him around the world to look into some of the most amazing movements to Christ of all time.
