Joel shares what the Greenhouse Network is discerning in this chapter of their story, specifically around codifying language and culture without burdening a movement with too much organization. Joel shares how they’ve been able to see their network more like an ecosystem than an empire. The Greenhouse Network is a beautiful picture of moving with the Spirit and joining Jesus where He’s already working.
