DREAM BIG Questions

A Supplementary Workbook

Todd Wilson and Bill Couchenour

Is biblical disciple making the core that drives what you do as a church and how you do everything you do?

Do you see each Christ follower as a potential pastor or missionary waiting to be birthed?

What holds you back from embracing risk for the sake of multiplication?

Are you prioritizing decisions you make as a church based on what’s best for Kingdom growth—even if it’s not best for your church?

Sometimes asking questions leads us to greater things than just the answers. In the asking, we learn more deeply who we are—what drives us and keeps us going, what scares us, etc. The new Dream Big Questions—a supplemental workbook to Dream Big, Plan Smart—offers hundreds of relevant questions that help you and your team dream big for Kingdom multiplication and take steps to move forward.

Designed to be used in tandem with the book, Dream Big Questions helps you put the principles of Dream Big, Plan Smart into action by equipping you to initiate and facilitate potentially difficult conversations with your team. Whether your church in the beginning stages of the multiplication conversation or wrestling with the inevitable internal and external tensions, Dream Big Questions prepares you and your team to get at the heart of what it takes to pursue multiplication.

One of the biggest barriers to a new future in multiplication is our failure to identify and honestly assess our current context. We embrace the past without asking questions to challenge the status quo. The questions in this workbook are intended to help you gain perspective on your past and current context and then make strategic decisions toward further clarity.

In addition to Reflection and Perspective questions, Dream Big Questions includes practical team application exercises throughout, as well as an assessment exercise based on the 10 characteristics of Level 5 multiplying churches. If you’re currently reading or have read Dream Big, Plan Smart, this workbook is the next step for aligning your team with God’s vision for multiplication.

Todd Wilson
Exponential Director, Author

Todd Wilson is the founder and currently serves as the CEO of Exponential (exponential.org), a national non-profit ministry whose core focus is distributing thought leadership through conferences, books, podcasts, software, and small group learning communities.

I’m passionate about the local church and the starting of healthy, high‐impact new churches. I enjoy starting new things focused on Kingdom impact and multiplication, as well as helping others create an image of future possibilities and the strategy to implement them.

I’m also co-founder of discipleship.org, Passion for Planting (church-planting.net), Made for More, and the Multipliers Project.

I received my B.S. in nuclear engineering from North Carolina State University and a master’s degree equivalent from the Bettis Atomic Power Laboratory. I spent 15 years serving in the Division of Naval Reactors on nuclear submarine design, operation, maintenance, and overhaul.

After a two-year wrestling match with God, I entered full‐time vocational ministry as the Executive Pastor at New Life Christian Church where I played a visionary and strategic role for several years as New Life grew and implemented key initiatives such as multisite, externally focused, and church planting. My passion for starting healthy new churches continues to increase, and I now spend most of my energy engaged in a wide range of leading-edge and pioneering initiatives aimed at helping catalyze movements of healthy, reproducing churches.

I’m also passionate about seeing people discover and deploy their unique personal calling.

I’m a certified Life Planner and strategically invest in the lives of several leaders and organizations each year. I’ve written/co-written multiple books, including Stories of Sifted (with Eric Reiss)(2012), Spark: Igniting a Culture of Multiplication (2014), Becoming a Level Five Multiplying Church (with Dave Ferguson)(2015), Dream Big, Plan Smart (with Will Mancini)(2016)More: Find Your Personal Calling and Live Life to the Fullest Measure (2016), Dream Big Workbook (with Will Mancini)(2016), Dream Big Questions (with Bill Couchenour)(2016), Multipliers: Leading Beyond Addition (2017), The Legacy of a Hero Maker (with Dave Ferguson – 2018), Made for More (with Rob Wegner in 2018), Mega-Multi-Multiply (with Ralph Moore in 2018) and The Mobilization Flywheel (with Larry Walkemeyer in 2019).

I live in Manassas, Virginia, with my wife Anna.  We have two grown boys, Ben and Chris, and two beautiful daughter-in-laws, Therese and Mariah.

My calling?  I am an ENTREPRENEUR (my BE), who ENVISAGES OPPORTUNITY (my DO), wherever there is potential for EXPONENTIAL KINGDOM IMPACT (my GO)!

My passions?

  • My family
  • The local church
  • Kingdom opportunities with potential for impact and multiplication
  • Helping Kingdom-minded leaders find their sweet spot of calling
  • Starting new things, including healthy new churches
