Multipliers Journey

Exponential’s Multipliers Journey is a six-month coaching/consulting process navigated by Auxano designed to equip churches with a “how to” toolbox for multiplying.

In-Person and
Virtual Co::Labs

Individual Church Consultation

Denomination and Network Certification

The Multipliers Journey (MJ) process is designed to take you on a journey to reproduction and multiplication…

The Multipliers Journey process consists of five phases with core deliverables that propel movement from addition to multiplication:

Every successful Journey has a beginning point and a clear destination in mind. Using Exponential’s Level 5 Framework, you and your team will determine your church’s best possible multiplication pathway.

Along the way, you will discover your unique way of living out the three dimensions of multiplication: 1) disciple-making, 2) capacity-building, and 3) mobilizing disciple-makers.

In this part of the journey, emphasis will be placed on creating a culture and scorecard for multiplication around your values, narratives, and behaviors.

During this phase, you will develop a multiplication plan using Auxano’s 1:4/1:4 Vision Planning tool. This plan will provide clarity, focus, and direction for moving from addition to multiplication.

Finally, you will develop an implementation system for executing your multiplication plan through a well-coached multiplication team.

At the end of the MJ process, you will fill your toolbox with practical tools for moving from addition to multiplication. This toolbox will include a multiplication target, culture, scorecard, plan, and implementation system design to help you level up.

Regardless of your level, you can experience the revolutionary breakthrough needed for 100X multiplication.

Let's Answer Your Questions…

Exponential has served churches, denominations, networks, and the broader “big C” church for two decades through stewarding the church multiplication conversation. As a part of Exponential’s mission, we have curate and distribute multiplication resources that include frameworks that have become widely used by multiplication leaders in the U.S. and around the world.

To expand on its mission to help churches and leaders multiply disciples and churches, Exponential invited and has partnered with Auxano, a category leader in clarity first consulting organization, to create a simple process designed to move churches from the aspiration to the action for church multiplication. The Multipliers Journey process brings the best of Exponential’s multiplication content and frameworks together in a simple toolbox anchored with an executable multiplication plan with Auxano.

There are three environments for a church leadership team to participate and complete the Multipliers Journey.

  • In-person Co::Lab
  • Virtual Co::Lab
  • Individual Church Consultation

Each environment is a full six-month process with once a month, full-day sessions guided by a Multipliers Journey navigator with continued process work by a church’s core team.

Exponential and Auxano have crafted a three-step process where denomination and network leaders can leverage the Multipliers Journey as a key initiative to advance disciple-making, church planting, and multiplication in their tribe. Simply, if you are network or denomination leader, Multipliers Journey can be a core piece to accomplishing your Multiplication Dream. Through the Multipliers Journey Network / Denomination Pathway, you can engage:

  1. Multipliers Journey Workshop: half-day workshop for leaders throughout your tribe to be inspired to pursue church multiplication with next steps
  2. Multipliers Journey Co::Lab Sponsored by Your Network / Denomination: a Co::Lab for your churches with your multiplication catalysts who will be apprenticing to lead future Co::Labs
  3. Multipliers Journey Navigator Certification for Your Multiplication Catalysts: in-depth training and toolkit certification for catalysts, national leaders, regional leaders, and strategists in your network and denomination to expand the use of Multipliers Journey so more and more churches are implementing a church multiplication vision and strategic plan
  • Each Co::Lab consists of 10 to 12 churches.
  • A Co::Lab consists of 6 sessions, over 6 months, 4-5 hours each.
  • Each church is encouraged to bring 3 to 5 key leaders to each session.
  • Each session consists of approximately 50% content and 50% process work by the team.
  • The sessions are broken down as follows:
    • Session 1: Discovery – How do we shift to multiplication?
    • Session 2: Commitment – How do we cultivate a multiplication mindset?
    • Session 3: Alignment – How do we mobilize for multiplication?
    • Session 4 & 5: Planning – How do we develop a multiplication plan?
    • Session 6: Implementation – How do we execute a strategy for multiplication?

Each church will work through their own process for aligning culture and developing a multiplication plan.

  5. Multiplication Implementation
  • With less than 7% of US churches reproducing, the Multipliers Journey process helps churches move from addition to multiplication.
  • With fewer people coming to our churches Multipliers Journey equips us to go to our neighborhoods, communities, and cities with clarity and conviction for multiplication.
  • Provides churches that are plateaued and in decline a revolutionary way forward.
  • Catalyzes churches that are already multiplying to increase their capacity for disciple making and multiplication.
  • Equips “Level 3” addition-based churches to shift from addition to multiplication.

The Multipliers Journey is best engaged with a church leadership team of 3-5 primary leaders (lead pastor / planter, core team, leadership team, elders, etc.) who have the vision and time to invest in shaping the vision and plan for their church to pursue multiplication.

The answer is, yes!  There are two types of change: revolutionary and evolutionary.  Churches in plateau and decline need revolutionary change.  The Multipliers Journey process can help churches learn new skills, develop a new sense of purpose, make key decisions and ultimately move from addition (which is not working for them) to multiplication (which is their only way forward).
