What Is Your Church’s Multiplication Level?

Reproducing leaders share their journeys toward multiplication in these podcasts from Exponential conferences.

November 7, 2016


Is your church multiplying its impact?

Before you can take steps toward multiplication, you need to discover your current multiplication level. Is it Level 1 (subtraction), 2 (plateau), 3 (addition), 4 (reproducing) or 5 (multiplying)?

Currently, less than 4 percent of U.S. churches are reproducing, with less than .5 percent at Level 5 multiplication. Moving beyond the 4 percent requires every church leader to look candidly at how they’re doing with multiplication, identify the tensions that are keeping your church from Levels 4 and 5, and then develop a plan to wrestle with these tensions and move forward.

Take the FREE Becoming 5 Assessment, (you’ll get immediate results) and then dive deeper into the podcasts from Exponential conferences below. In these podcasts, some of today’s church multiplication leaders share how they began their multiplication journeys and offer insights into what it looks like to move toward Kingdom multiplication.
