    About Greenhouse

    Outside view of a greenhouse

    The purpose of The Envision Greenhouse is to provide diverse young leaders in the Alliance in Canada with meaningful mentoring relationships and creative environments to foster growth and collaboration that goes beyond the local context.

    We believe that as mentees and mentors, we can benefit in learning from one another's backgrounds, ministry or career vocations, skills, and spiritual journeys for the sake of community and leadership development as part of the Kingdom of God. 

    What Happens at Greenhouse


    "One-on-One" Mentoring

    You get matched with a mentor that meets with you regularly for invidualized support in life, ministry and vocation.

    Group Mentoring

    You are placed in a group to journey through peer-mentorship with other young leaders.

    All-Mentee Gatherings
    (coming Sept 2022)

    You get access to our online sessions that focuses on relevant teaching and practical excercises.

    is this you?

    How do you get involved?

    We try to make it easy by breaking it down into four steps

    Complete an application form so we can get to know you a bit more and your preferences.

    You will be asked some info about your background, how you are discerning your calling, and your experience in mentorship.

    Upon your application, we ask if we can get in touch with your pastor or a mentor from your local church.

    This helps all of us to be united in prayer and support for you, especially in getting your local community to support and champion you.

    As a team, we discern and find a match for your 1-1 mentoring and place you in a group based on your preferences, skills, and expertise.

    Your 1-1 mentor will reach out to schedule your first meet up. After that, it's up to you to schedule your mentoring sessions.

    Then it's about showing up to all-mentee gatherings and your group meetings!


    for one season
    A season spans for 3 months and covers all assessments, coaching sessions, resource material and software licenses.

    Your Mentee Experience in Greenhouse :

    1-1 Mentoring

    Based on your needs, life stage, and vocation/ministry, we pair you with a mentor for one on one mentoring where you can meet online weekly or bi-weekly.

    Group mentoring

    You'll get to collaborate on a project through a process that goes from idea to a product-fit proposal stage. The purpose is to learn to work together while growing together spiritually.

    All-mentee gathering

    These are our online gatherings where you'll experience teaching, growth, prayer, and community.

    We launched a test pilot in Spring 2021

    What's the process to be a Greenhouse Mentor?

    We try to make it easy by breaking it down into four steps

    Feel free to apply directly with us, or through your district (when applies)!

    You will be asked some info about your background, your experience in mentorship, and your preferred role as a mentor (1-1 mentor, group mentor, or speaker).

    We notify (and partner with) your district that you'd like to get involved as a Greenhouse Mentor.

    Our offices ensure the vetting process refers to any possible existing licensing and ordination you have undergone.

    As a team, we discern and find a match for your 1-1 mentoring or develop a project with you.

    As a 1-1 mentor, you will reach out to schedule your first meet up with your mentee.

    As a group mentor, we will schedule a time for your first group meeting where you will meet your designated team.

    As a all-mentee gathering speaker, we'll support you for your teaching and material.
