The New Leaf Network is a collaborative missional organization that supports and equips church planters, spiritual entrepreneurs and missional practitioners in post-Christian Canada. Through training, events, story-telling and specialized coaching, this growing collective of Jesus-centred leaders is a community of innovators working to lead from the emerging future.
The New Leaf Network faces both the reality of the shifting spiritual landscape in Canada, seeing the decline of churches in a wide variety of contexts, yet we also see the hope of the Spirit of God at work across our nation in new and innovative ways. That is why we support planters and starters to do something new in Canada. We hold the stuggle and hope together in tension.
Because of our work for partnering with and submitting to networks and denominations, we focus on a centre around Christ, and don’t require a bounded set of beliefs or doctrinal statements to attend New Leaf events.
We work where Jesus is glorified and the Spirit is at work.
With these as our postures towards the broader body of Christ, we have started to realize that while we all may hold distinctive on behaving and belonging, unity is centered on Christ.
Jesus is the filter that influences our understanding of the scripture.
Jesus is the model for our practice.
Bounded set might be required to associate with your denomination or your affiliation.
But our conviction is Jesus-centred-DNA and the fruit of the Spirit is all that is required for Christians working together.
You are welcome at the New Leaf table of fellowship.
