Church NEXT

Creating a Culture of Healthy Church Growth and Multiplication

The World Continues to Change

As seasons and times change, the church stands at the intersection of innovation and irrelevance.

At Exponential NEXT, we are positioning ourselves to help the church dream and execute innovative practices that increase church multiplication and healthy growth.

When healthy churches grow, disciples are multiplied and missionaries are deployed. We believe that Church NEXT is a healthy resource designed to inspire the church to innovate for the sake of the Kingdom of God.

The change won’t stop. It will only accelerate. And through it all, faithful leaders will keep asking: What does Jesus want? How can we follow him today? And what will make the biggest impact in the future?

  • Disciples Made

    From Jesus forward to today, the focus of the church has always been disciple making.

  • Leaders Raised

    Leaders producing leaders. Multiplying the impact of the church through servanthood.

  • Churches Planted

    Generate healthy growth, create a healthy culture, and implement sound management practices.

  • Movements Created

    God is on the move. He put his treasure within us so that His power is put on display and not ours.

NEW Video Series:
Embracing Your Kingdom Platform


Join Dave Rhodes, Exponential Church NEXT Director and Clarity House, Co-Founder with Shane Stacey, Clarity House, Co-Founder for episode 1 of the Church NEXT series: Embracing Your Kingdom Platform.

In this video Dave and Shane set the Biblical framework for the entire series by looking at a pivotal moment in the life and ministry of Jesus. When the Pharisees try to detour Jesus’ ministry future, Jesus makes a move to ensure his ministry future. This pivotal move models a shift that we all must make as ministry leaders if we want to empower the latent leadership potential of our church.
