SPRING Season: Jan 29 - may 1, 2022
*featuring 1-1 mentoring and group mentoring*
Registration opens June 1, 2021
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" MentoringYou get matched with a mentor that meets with you regularly for invidualized support in life, ministry and vocation.
Group MentoringYou are placed in a group to journey through peer-mentorship with other young leaders.
(coming Sept 2022)
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.
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!

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 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.
