Exponential 2014 will take a fresh look at evangelism — proclaiming the Good News — as we rethink and challenge some of our old paradigms and rediscover some of Jesus’ old truths. Within the context of discipleship, we will press into five key areas of evangelism:
ReThinking Evangelism | ReThinking Outreach | ReThinking Witness
ReThinking Preaching | ReThinking Commission


Pre-conference Forums @ Exponential West

Monday, October 6, 1-5 pm and Tuesday, October 7, 8:30-11:30 am

Forums feature experienced leaders in focused discussions, centering on foundational issues faced by today’s church planters. It’s like a conference within a conference. The new Exponential Forums give you the opportunity to listen in on candid conversation between 5-6 leaders in a unique “living room” environment. They will focus on five issues critical to the forum topic and share their struggles and inspiring stories. Plus, be part of the discussion in an extended Q & A and interaction time. Each Exponential Forum will feature a short “TED talk” style presentation from one speaker followed by discussion between the leaders and Q&A.

Visit exponential.org/forum for detailed descriptions.

Airport Information

The closest airport is JOHN WAYNE / SANTA ANA Airport (airport code = SNA). SNA is a short drive to Saddleback Church, and because Disneyland is nearby (only 20 miles from SNA and Saddleback Church), it stays fairly competitive in price.

Other airport options include LONG BEACH (airport code = LGB), LOS ANGELES International Airport (airport code = LAX) or ONTARIO International Airport (airport code = ONT). These airports are farther away, though typically less expensive due to traffic volume. LAX is much more traffic-intensive, both at the airport and on the freeways from the airport to Saddleback Church. If you fly into LAX, plan on a one- to two-hour commute to Saddleback Church, depending on your arrival time. ONT is less traffic-intensive both at the airport and on the freeways. Allow for a one-hour commute from ONT or LGB to Saddleback Church.
