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.
