The New Leaf Design Shop is a 3-day interactive gathering of Church Planters from all stages (ie – thinking about considering, working toward a plant, about to plant, planted, etc).

This is not your mother’s cookie cutter “10 Easy Steps to Planting a Church” kind of event. These events are action-packed and uniquely Canadian. They encourage contextual thinking, culturally responsiveness, and mission adaptability. They are team-taught by practitioners that have experience planting churches in Canada.

If you are looking for help, a chance to think out your plan, and to hear life-saving advice for the road ahead, the New Leaf Design Shop is for you.

This Design Shop is being offered in partnership with Horizon College, March 2-5, 2020. If you would like to take the Design Shop for academic credit, please contact Horizon College directly and register for the course.
