Artizo Residency – Going Deeper
Artizo is committed to church growth. The Artizo Institute Residency Program equips Artizo graduates in a supportive environment at a participating church. ‘Growth’, in this context, is threefold: growth of the graduate as they hone their abilities in leadership, growth of the church in their scriptural role of supporting and encouraging the graduate, and growth of the church in Canada as increasing numbers of well-trained, capable pastors proclaim God’s word.

“There’s an old Greek proverb that says, ‘A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never enjoy.’ I think of this saying when I think of those who choose to invest in Artizo.
