Potter's Hand Community Church (North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada)
At the 2006 convention of the British Columbia Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches, delegates accepted Potter's Hand Community Church, planted under the auspices of Ignite Vancouver, a church planting initiative of the Canadian Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches. The church was launched in fall 2005 led by Joey and Eden Umali, targeting the Filipino community in Vancouver. The church began by meeting in homes but eventually began holding services Sunday evening in the St. Andrews United Church in North Vancouver. By 2009 the church had 50 regular attendees, predominantly Filipino.
In April 2009 the congregation decided to join House for All Nations, a multi-campus multicultural church with locations throughout Metro Vancouver. An inaugural service for the House for All Nations North Vancouver campus was held on 3 October 2009.
