The exchange between the two tree species was dynamic…and so, they forged their duality into oneness, making a forest.

Why we believe in Forest Planting

Jesus intentionally taught with parables and metaphors because He knew they could communicate truths in a way that brought people into an experience. 2000 years later we are still talking about those parables and applying them to life. Alan Hirsch writes, “Metaphors and stories not only speak to the mind; they capture the heart, mind, and will all at once.” (On the Verge) Because we operate in metaphorical thinking, the way we understand church and church planting is based around our metaphors. The metaphor of a business, a family, a body or a bride, help us understand the church through a certain lens. We believe there are powerful principles in a Forest metaphor that help the church recover her imagination, plant in healthier, sustainable ways and promote conversations that drive us to what God intended the church to be.

We need to play with ideas

Albert Einstein once said, "Play is the highest form of research." As leaders we have read countless books on church, leadership, church planting, team development and many more topics. We have been to hours and hours worth of conferences and sat under great leaders and teachers. All of this has given us more ideas than we could implement in a lifetime. You and your team need a safe place to play with those ideas and discuss with others so you can evaluate their effectiveness. The Forest Planting Simulation Game provides that safe place. It allows you to test concepts of reproduction, multiplication, collaboration without the consequences of failure or poor implementation.

What you will experience


Powerful, Results-based Conversations

It’s not all fun and games. The power of the Forest Planting Simulation lies in the debriefing that is designed to pull out your leanings from the game and focus your team to develop concrete actions steps for implementation. The debriefing is tailored to your objectives as a leader and what you determined are the needs of your team. These may include topics such as; collaboration with others, communication, determining our strengths and weaknesses, engaging new communities or people groups, breaking out of “silos”, casting and developing a bigger vision. Using a method of facilitation called, Results-based Conversations, we get your teams reflecting on and talking about the game experience and how those principles relate to their understanding of church planting and movement multiplication. With a well thought out design, our RbC facilitation of The Forest Planting Experience will support your team as they create a working model for implementing their vision.

Who we are?

Forester /ˈfɒrɪstə/ noun: a person in charge of a forest or skilled in planting, managing, or caring for trees.

We are Kingdom foresters. One day, as we talked about a dream for Poland and beyond, we realized we can do more together than we can individually.

Our motivation is

to care for the trees in God’s forest.

Whether those trees are individuals, churches, denominations or networks, we love seeing them planted, growing, cared for and multiplied. With many years of church planting, business and ministry experience we are passionate about helping God’s Kingdom Forest grow and creating an ecosystem in which collaboration happens for the benefit of our cities through the power of the gospel. We are passionate about God, focused on building His church and we are in Poland…on purpose.
