Last minute options!

We have two cohorts launching in the next month: Ministry Architects cohort (a hybrid cohort, meeting in Nashville, first meeting at the end of February), and VA cohort (meeting just north of Richmond, full cohort, first meeting in early March). Both of these cohorts are technically full with 10 participants each; but we would be open to adding one person to each.
