The Lean Start Up Canvas has been making the rounds this
year as social and spiritual innovators think through their plans for changing
the world and blessing their neighborhoods.My friend Bill Gibson, who directs new church development in the Pacific
Northwest for the United Methodists, adapted the Start Up Canvas to the new
church context.I have used Gibson's
adaptation of this tool with my students at Wesley Seminary and with the
planters that I helped to train this year at Path 1's Launchpad.
