Don’t miss one of the largest gatherings of church planting leaders in the world.
SPARK is the theme of Exponential 2015, inspired by these words Paul wrote to Timothy: “For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline” (2 Tim. 1: 6-7).
Inside every follower of Jesus is the spark of multiplication and when that spark is “fanned into a flame,” it can ignite an entire culture of multiplication. But it takes friction—the quick strike of the match against a rough surface—to start the process of turning a spark into a flame and ultimately a raging fire. Do you believe that every follower has a gift meant to be multiplied in others’ lives? Do you believe that in every believer lies the heart of a movement for God?
Pre-Conference Labs and Forums are approximately 3.5 hours in length on Monday and Tuesday before the main conference begins.
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.
NOTE: Discipleship and Multi-ethnic labs / forums run both Monday and Tuesday.
Exponential West 2015 offers multiple tracks with more than 100 workshops. Mix and match to make the most of your Exponential experience.
The closest airport is JOHN WAYNE / SANTA ANA Airport (airport code = SNA). SNA is less than six miles from Mariners Church, and because Disneyland, the beach and other areas of interest are nearby, flights are relatively competitive in price.
Other airport options include LONG BEACH (LGB), LOS ANGELES International Airport (LAX) or ONTARIO International Airport (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 Mariners Church. If you fly into LAX or ONT, plan on a one- to two-hour commute to Mariners Church, depending on your arrival time.
