Exponential Regionals are designed to make the main stage programming at our national event in Orlando more accessible to church leaders in local geographic areas. These gatherings are for leaders who are unable to attend our national event OR need a more affordable option to bring their entire team. These events are shorter in length than our national event to help leaders save on travel expenses BUT are still filled with the full punch of the national event theme. These gatherings include pre-conference equipping labs and 5 main sessions.
Join hundreds of leaders for inspiration, encouragement and equipping at Exponential’s Southern California Regional church planting conference in Irvine, CA. Register early as space is limited at these smaller, more intimate gatherings.
HeroMaker is the theme for Exponential 2018. The theme focuses on the shift from being the hero to coming alongside others for them to become the heroes in our church’s unfolding story. Marked by a sense of holy and humble tenacity, leaders of a Level 5 multiplying church shift from being the hero and instead leverage their power and influence to become hero makers that lift up and support others.
Pre-Conference Equipping Labs begin on Tuesday, October 2 (1:00 – 5:00 pm) and continue on Wednesday, October 3 (9:00 – 11:30 am) before the main conference begins.
Sessions will focus on the 5 shifts required to go from being a hero to a hero maker in your church’s unfolding story.
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.
We are currently negotiating great deals for our attendees. Check back later for more information.
