There are so many resources and connections converging here. Learn from the vast experience of hundreds of seasoned parish guides, and from the incredible organizations we have partnered with over the years who specialize in areas related to the Parish Movement.

Find The Right Training

Thousands of parish experiments are transpiring around the world. There is an incredible movement afoot, but the way is complex, and the experienced guides are few. Parish Collective has gained a strong reputation for their transformative learning process and their certified trainers are some of the most experienced.

Listen to Podcast

Our partner podcast was created by one of the early founders of Parish Collective. RePlacing Church exists to support Christians who believe the kind of church Jesus had in mind is still possible. Through training, coaching, writing, and especially a podcast, Replacing Church helps people imagine, create, and lead new expressions of church that seek to follow Jesus in the neighborhood, foster wholehearted community, and pursue social change locally and globally.

Explore Partner Journal

The Journal of Missional Practice curates stories of God at work in local contexts and cultivates learning communities that practice robust theological listening with these narratives. JMP is unashamedly story driven and committed to theological reflection. God’s action and activity is the starting place and focus.
