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.

Registration deadline is Monday, February 24th.


Due to low enrollment, this Design Shop has been postponed. New dates will be announced soon. If you are interested in hearing when it will be held, email [email protected] and let us know you are interested.
