The Aspen Network is comprised of anchor churches, church plants, and apprentices. An anchor church is both a sending church (actively participating as an overseeing church to at least one church plant) and a hub church (willingly utilizing resources to provide administrative, leadership, and partnership assistance to all Network churches). Currently, the Aspen Network has two anchor churches: Tapestry Church and Urban Grace Church.
The Aspen Network has five active church plants at various stages of maturity. Hope Church is located in Symons Valley in NW Calgary. The Vine Church is located in Bowness on the western side of Calgary. The Cairn is positioned in the beautiful Canadian Rockies in the town of Canmore. Impact Church exists to reach African immigrants in NE Calgary. And Community Grace, the newest network plant, is located in the Calgary community of Marda Loop.
The Aspen Network believes the greatest bottleneck to church planting is identifying, developing, and deploying of called and equipped leaders. In 2017, the Aspen Network began with three church planting apprentices learning in the context of Tapestry Church. These original apprentices, and those who would later follow, were prayed over and sent into the harvest field as Network Church Planters. Currently, the Aspen Network is investing in four Network Apprentices as they are trained in the context of the local church.
