About Us

EDGE: A Network for Ministry Development began in 2011 as a three-year project focused on new and renewing ministries across The United Church of Canada.  In 2014, it was integrated into the periphery of the Church in Mission unit of the General Council Offices.

EDGE joins hands with those willing to take a leap into the promise; God breaking open the church, breaking into the world. EDGE is a living web of new and renewing ministries and leaders in the power of the Spirit, following Christ, embracing God’s mission in the world.

We work with congregations, presbyteries, conferences, and ministries across Canada in areas of new & renewing ministries, communities in crisis, stories of celebration, and ideas worth sharing.

You can contact us, find out about our staff, and find us on Facebook,  Twitter, and YouTube.
