The Multiply Network exists to inspire, initiate, resource, and champion church multiplication in our PAOC family. We desire to come alongside Districts, Churches, Leaders and Catalysts to help take the guesswork out of church multiplication and work towards providing all Canadians with access points to the Gospel.
Whatever your role in the multiplication process - whether you are pastoring, planting, praying or partnering - the Multiply Network is here to help! We hope you'll take some time to check out the resources we're curating here. Please reach out if there's anything we can do to support you as, together, we advance the Kingdom across Canada.
Cheering you on,
Multiply Network Co-ordinator
