Congregations thrive when leaders teach the scriptures and model the life of Jesus Christ.

MINISTRY ISN'T JUST WHAT YOU KNOW.
IT'S WHO YOU ARE.

CONVICTION

Jesus Christ is good news! Before anything else, this is the core of Artizo. We spend time together every week praying, studying scripture, and challenging each other to go deeper in our relationship with Christ.

CHARACTER

Who you are in ministry is more important than what you know. We take character seriously, requiring every Artizo intern to participate in a mentoring relationship as well as peer to peer small groups.

COMPETENCE

Artizo doesn’t allow interns to stay in the classroom. Every intern must participate in 8 hours of ministry each week under the supervision of our experienced trainers. Interns can also expect to preach 8 times over the course of a year.

RAISING MINISTERS OF THE GOSPEL

The Artizo Institute is a transdenominational Canadian initiative with a mandate to identify and equip Christian leaders committed to the gospel of Jesus Christ. It does this through actively and deliberately identifying men and women who are gifted as preachers, teachers, and leaders, and encouraging them toward ordained ministry.
PREACHING OPPORTUNITIES

Finding opportunities to preach can be really challenging. Artizo is blessed with a network of churches that give significant preaching opportunities to young leaders. Interns can expect to preach once every six weeks during the course of their internship.

EXPERT LED SEMINARS

Every week we bring in fantastic practitioners to share their wisdom. These seminars cover topics like exegesis, sermon preparation, multi-generational ministry, multi-ethnic ministry, evangelism, pastoral counselling, and discipleship.

REAL MINISTRY LEADERSHIP

Artizo interns are partnered with staff members at local churches to see the whole picture of ministry and lead in a variety of ministry environments. Each intern spends time with children, youth, and adults to get a rounded understanding of ministry.

FOCUSED DISCIPLESHIP

Every week interns sit with our seasoned trainers to consider what God might be saying to them. This is done through peer to peer of accountability and challenge. On top of this, interns also journey with a mentor throughout their internship.

“In my short time with Artizo I have grown immensely in my reverence for the Word of God, in all of its life-changing glory.”
