Join Ed Stetzer and Jeff Christopherson for a free lunch hosted by the SEND Institute at Exponential 2019 in Orlando.

If you’re a denominational or network leader, we invite you to join Ed Stetzer and Jeff Christopherson as they share insights on networks for the future.

Date/Time: Tuesday, March 5th, 11:30am

Location: Faith Hall, Room 301F

A new frontier has arrived in North America and the reality is that the future of church planting hinges on our ability to collaborate. It used to be that 30 years ago a denomination or network could start a church in a bubble without really having to consult or rely on others. This is probably because what we knew  as church planting was still workable for that generation. In a sense, our map for church planting still worked. Today, some networks may continue to work on their own, picking and choosing if and when they’ll collaborate with others. But the reality for most all networks is an increasing necessity to learn from one another in collaboration. Ed Stetzer and Jeff Christopherson, co-executive directors of the Send Institute, will talk about the necessity and essentials of collaboration in order to increase church planting capacity and effectiveness for the future.

This lunch is sold out. For questions or to be placed on the waiting list, please email Bill Couchenour (

We also have a workshop track hosted by the SEND Institute that is designed especially for denominational and network leaders. You can register for the full Exponential 2019 conference by clicking here.
