Toronto, Ontario: Following the announcement of the integration on April 1st, 2019, Pastors and Leaders from both Partners in Harvest and Catch The Fire have been actively involved in the consultation and integration process of these two streams. On September 17th, 2019 an additional announcement highlighted further details of the integration to all the staff of Catch The Fire and Partners In Harvest.
The vision to integrate was that both Partners in Harvest and Catch The Fire will be “stronger together”. This will fulfill their God-given destiny, to invest in leaders, strengthen the local church, and resource missional initiatives.
The Apostolic Leadership Cluster (John & Carol Arnott, Duncan & Kate Smith, and Dan & Gwen Slade) who are leading this integration together has decided to keep the name Catch The Fire. Similarly, a high priority is set for the following areas as this integration is rolled out in the following months: Church Autonomy, Building Healthy Churches, Checks and Balances for leaders, Finances and the benefits of integrating.
The timescale for the transition will vary from Church to Church. Over the next 8 months, there will be a number of announcements made via Zoom to keep everyone involved updated regarding the process.
