The Learning Centre

Each week we will feature a new Canadian leader who has cleared a unique path in the new Canadian landscape. The Learning Centre will expose us to new ways of thinking and spark our imaginations and tune our hearts to the way that God is already at work in our country. More than ever, we need to learn from one another, encouraging fresh ideas and cheering one another on as we innovate. 

The Learning Centre has been going so well! We have loved hearing from people across Canada about how beneficial the content from our Canadian presenters has been. Check out the Resources page for video of the free events from April.

Because of the overwhelming support we are so excited to announce that starting Monday, May 4th New Leaf Learning Centre is moving to a pay-what-you-choose model. There will be two options, a monthly subscription or a one-session pass. For the monthly subscription, keep scrolling on this page. The one-session pass will be available on the session page each week. Follow the link on the session description below.

Monthly Subscription:
For those of you who would rather ‘set it and forget it’ we’ve created an easy monthly subscription model. Our subscription is pay-what-you-choose, with a suggested amount of $25/month. Can’t afford a subscription at this time?

What’s happening at the New Leaf Learning Centre?

  1. Rethinking Calling – July 2 – Canadian Multivocational Ministry Project
    Several years ago the Canadian Multivocational Ministry Project started research to understand the practice of combining congregational ministry with other vocational callings, as well as balancing work with family life. The research findings from this Canadian study are in and there is much wisdom to be found in the words of our Multivocational friends. Join us on July 2nd to have a conversation about how our understanding of calling to work and vocation impacts the satisfaction and sustainability of ministry life. All of our Learning Centre sessions are interactive, but in this session, in particular, we want to hear from you about your experience of vocational calling. From the Canadian Mulitivocaitonal Ministry Project research team Beth Anne Fisher, of the Wellness Project @ Wycliffe, as well as New Leaf’s Jared Siebert and Amy Bratton will share some of the research findings.

  • The Learning Centre is a unique part of the Neighbourhood, with its regular curated learning opportunities and we’ll be putting out a pay-what-you-choose option, almost like a “virtual tip jar” so that if you’re financially able, you can support content creators, the emerging virtual neighbourhood and the New Leaf Network broadly. For those of you who would rather ‘set it and forget it’ we’ve created an easy subscription model you can utilize.
  • If you can’t make it to the interactive Learning Centre sessions but would like to view the sessions afterwards, sign up and you will receive access to the recordings of the Learning Centre sessions.
  • Like all of you, we are working hard to reorient ourselves to these new realities. We know that some of you can afford to become a New Leaf Learning Centre Subscriber, but if you can’t afford it right now, please don’t hesitate to still join us.
