We plant

ARC Southern Africa

We are an association of relational churches working with church planters and church leaders to provide support, guidance and resources to launch and grow life-giving churches.

We are hosting a Meet-Up in Durban at Anthem Church, Friday 3 May, 9am. 
Josh Canizaro, Lead Pastor of One Hope Church, New Orleans, Louisiana is joining us & we can’t wait to hear from him. If you are leading a church, or plan to plant a church, you are invited! Bring your lead team too.

Meet-Ups are free events but please RSVP here to help us cater for a light lunch.


Joshua Canizaro was born and raised in the greater New Orleans area which is where he started in ministry serving as a youth pastor. After pastoring in Louisiana for nearly six years, he and his wife Amber moved to Birmingham, Alabama where he joined the team at Church of the Highlands — one of the fastest growing multi-site churches across the United States. 

In 2014 Josh, his wife Amber and their two children planted a thriving, life-giving ARC church in New Orleans, Louisiana – One Hope Church. Josh is passionate about helping people who feel far from God find hope in a life-giving and fulfilling relationship with Jesus Christ. He also loves serving as a coach for the Association of Related Churches and being a part of the Grow Coaching Network.
