Pre-Conference Labs and Forums are approximately 3.5 hours in length on Tuesday morning before the main conference begins (except for Discipleship and Multi-ethnic which also run on Monday for 4 hours during the Bonus Session time slot).
Exponential Labs are traditional training sessions focused on equipping attendees with best practices and information. Labs tend to be practical nuts and bolts type content aimed at helping attendees put information into practice.
Exponential Forums provide a unique learning opportunity as attendees listen in on candid conversation between 3-5 leaders in a “living room” environment. Forum leaders share their struggles and personal experience navigating the challenges characteristic of the forum theme. Each Forum session features a short “TED talk” style presentation from one speaker followed by discussion between all the participating leaders.
The closest airport is Tampa International Airport (airport code = TPA). Exciting Idlewild Baptist Church is a short drive from TPA, and because Busch Gardens and the beaches are nearby (only 20 miles from TPA and Exciting Idlewild Baptist Church), flight prices are reasonable.

The granddaddy or super-conference of church planting is the Exponential conference. Nothing else compares to it for affirming vision, encouraging the heart and aggregating the most approaches to church planting in one conference.
Exponential is one of the best church planting conferences in the world.
I highly recommend it!!
If you’re interested in ANY aspect of church planting, don’t miss the Exponential conference. It’s hands-down the best collection of training and networking for church planting there is.
