The Orchard Network
Our mission is to Grow Gospel Leaders for Churches. Recognizing the critical need for the next generation of gospel leaders as well as the value of partnering with the local church, our training programs were developed by Colin Smith to provide a breadth of exposure to a variety of ministries and a depth of practice to sharpen skills for effective deployment into pastoral, church planting, and missions work.
The Orchard Evangelical Free Church
Unlocking the Bible was born out of Pastor Colin Smith’s teaching ministry at The Orchard. The Orchard is a multi-campus evangelical church with campuses in Arlington Heights, Barrington, Itasca, Marengo and Northfield, Illinois. The Orchard’s Board and Staff are fully committed to the mission of Unlocking the Bible, and they work closely with us regularly to help the gospel run. http://theorchardefc.org
