The L6 Launch Party: A Fancy Evening of Food, Fun, and Friends

Nearly a month ago, Faithlife released Logos 6: the world’s most advanced Bible software.

Every Faithlife employee was tested the week Logos 6 launched—whether that meant serving customers, or each other.

After all the hard work that went into launching Logos 6, one thing was clear: we needed to celebrate. With more than 20 years of creating technology-based Bible study tools under our belt, Logos 6 was a giant leap forward.

How do we celebrate such a huge achievement?

We threw a party. Last weekend, we packed into Bellingham Technical College in Washington (a hop, a skip, and a jump from Canada), and stuffed it with as much food, entertainment, and people as it could handle. Our party planners included our executive assistant, Brittany Hackett (a former wedding planner) and Quintin Cooke (one of our professional designers), so we went big.

Everyone crowded around to watch a special video created in honor of the Logos 6 launch and the employees who made it happen.

Elizabeth Russell says, “there were circus-like performers walking around everywhere. There was a man juggling, and a gymnast-acrobat lady.” In honor of the Logos 6 launch, there was also a larger-than-life astronaut:

The Bellingham Circus Guild helped create a fun atmosphere and served as a constant reminder that this was a time to relax and enjoy themselves after months of serious work.

Tables were set up with pizza, cheese platters, Nanaimo bars, macaroons, pierogies, fresh fruit, root beer floats, and tons of other dessert selections from Pure Bliss Desserts.

It was a mix of fancy and fun—we even used linens from Bellingham Wedding and Event Rentals to give the party that classy feel.

A photobooth was set up by Oh Snap! Photobooth so everyone could take goofy photos with their friends, family, and coworkers:

While Faithlife employees mingled, The Upfront Theatre performed live improv-comedy.

The Upfront Theatre is a local comedy club in Bellingham, founded by famous improv-comedian Ryan Stiles.

For many, the highlight of the night was when CEO Bob Pritchett took time to recognize the people he called “the launch heroes.” Each of these people were recognized by their coworkers for going the extra mile, working long hours, and making huge contributions to this monumental project.

In a company of nearly 450 employees, public affirmation like that means a lot. Bob thanked 15 launch heroes who had been repeatedly nominated by their coworkers and said that after all of the nominations he received, there were about 60 people who he was going to personally thank for their efforts.

All in all, it was a fun-filled night with friends and family, honoring a landmark launch for Logos Bible Software.

Special thanks to Brittany Hackett and Quintin Cooke for planning, decorating, and setting up this fantastic evening, and to Laura Roberts, Grete Cass, and Matt Church for making BTC look spotless after.
