TMN supports and resources church leaders as they shape congregational life around the mission of God. We are a team of consultants, teachers, facilitators and church leaders who cultivate safe spaces, robust resources and processes to re-orient our Christian communities for the sake of the Gospel and the transformation of God’s world.
TMN team is so integrated and the most helpful resource in our journey. They are passionate about living this out and exude certainty and confidence, not in answers, but in walking together and the faithfulness of the Spirit.Julianne Barlow, Senior Pastor, Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada
We are on the right track with TMN. We are doing some things that are long and hard and slow, but it is making a real difference.Sheryl Kinder-Pyle, Executive Leader, PC USA
I felt very supported throughout the process with TMN. A key learning was that you cannot be on this journey alone. There have to be others to coach, support and reflect with you. We need to learn in community and have mutual support and accountability.Mark Verdery, Executive Presbyter, PC USA
Our engagement with TMN gave us energy, fuel and methodology for shift to the neighbourhood. We also gained new skills and hope for re-engaging the denomination.Jeff Savage, Pastor, American Baptist Church
