Exponential Regionals are designed to make the main stage programming at our national events in Orlando and Los Angeles more accessible to church leaders in local geographic areas. These gatherings are for leaders who are unable to attend our national events OR need a more affordable option to bring their entire team. These regional gatherings are more intimate and include breakout conversations to help unpack the main session content in more detail. These events are shorter in length than our national events to help leaders save on travel expenses BUT are still filled with the full punch of the national event theme. These gatherings include 5 main sessions and multiple conversation breakouts.
Join hundreds of leaders for inspiration, encouragement and equipping at Exponential’s Chicago Regional church planting conference in Naperville, IL. Register early as space is limited at these smaller, more intimate gatherings.
Dream Big is the theme for Exponential 2017. Jesus challenged us with a big dream. If He had sketched out His big dream for His Church, we think it would be something like, “You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes up on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8). The dream that Jesus gave His followers was the dream of a movement. Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, the ends of the earth—that is a very big dream! We are here because of that dream. As Christ followers and leaders of His church, Jesus is asking us to also dream big!
Join us in 2017 as we dive into what it looks like to dream big for your church—and the Kingdom.
Equipping Labs are approximately 4 hours in length, before the main conference begins. These training sessions are practical nuts and bolts type content aimed at helping attendees put information into practice.
Jesus challenged us with a big dream and we need to challenge our churches to dream big too! “You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes up on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)
When we dream big it changes the questions we ask and is a catalyst for creativity and innovation. If we don’t continue to dream big we will never ask the important and profound questions that will allow us to see the dream of Jesus accomplished.
People are inspired by big dreams and want to be a part of big dreams. Big dreams are contagious. Big dreams are infectious. Big dreams not only change you, but they slowly begin to change your friends and others around you!
Big dreams make us more dependent on God and drive us to our knees. If you don’t have a dream that causes you to be dependent on God then you need to get a bigger dream!
Big dreams change us and change the world! We will ask people to come forward and be commissioned to a new future with a big dream
Exponential Chicago includes several optional breakout sessions on the Becoming Five framework. Instead of traditional workshops, these facilitated conversation sessions help leaders and their teams discuss, unpack and apply the content from the main sessions. These are face-to-face connecting opportunities designed to drill down into the main stage content to drive understandings that spawn actions. If you desire to understand the five levels of churches in greater depth or to apply the framework to your context, these breakouts are for you.
