Insight Portal

A place to get involved in a community interested in shaping the future church.

Welcome to the Insight Portal. We are thrilled to have you here as valuable members of our church’s future-shaping community. Your input and insights are incredibly important as we navigate the ever-changing landscape of the Canadian context. This space is intended to offer Christian leaders from across Atlantic Canada (and beyond) an opportunity to gather our collective wisdom as we gaze towards the future of the church (local and global) together.


Leaders are invited to share future insights which could be a ‘hunch’ or a morsel of knowledge which you see as shaping the church currently or in the future. Future insights can be drawn from articles, books, news articles, blog posts, videos, etc. and help to illuminate current trends, or contain new, unique, and potentially emerging ideas relevant to the future church.

Trend: Trends have recognizable, historical, and visible paths and impacts. Often, they can be verified by quantitative and qualitative data.

Emerging Ideas: Emerging Ideas represent a potential emerging (not yet established) idea, technology, social practice, or concept which could impact the Church.

We believe that collectively, we can grow in wisdom and awareness of what is happening in the world around us, and then engage in spirit-led discernment and theological reflection to consider what this means for the church.
