Greenhouse Concept 

The Greenhouse is a relational context for leaders from a city or region to gather together in a supportive environment and learn more about church and church planting from one another and the Scriptures.

The Organic Church Planters' Greenhouse includes two regional weekend retreats and regular monthly gatherings. Greenhouse sites are springing up around the U.S. and world.
