Join thousands of church planting leaders for four days of inspiration, encouragement and equipping at Exponential West church planting conference in Los Angeles. The conference will feature 2,000 church planting leaders and sunny Los Angeles, California.

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 upon 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.

Airport Information

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.
