Dream Big, Plan Smart

Finding Your Pathway to Level Five Multiplication

Todd Wilson and Will Mancini

The Exponential 2017 Theme Book - Available Now!

In this new book, Exponential co-founder Todd Wilson and Will Mancini pour gasoline on the already blazing church multiplication conversation. This book is the sequel to Spark: Creating a Culture of Multiplication (2015) and Becoming a Level Five Multiplying Church (2016). Wilson and Mancini seek to help church leaders turn their aspirations and good intentions for multiplication into compelling visions with actionable strategies. The book is built on a solid foundation of strategic planning, looking through the lens of multiplication.

Supplemental Materials: To assist leaders in putting the principles of Dream Big, Plan Smart into action, we’re releasing several additional FREE supplemental resources. The first is a Dream Big Questions workbook. Another workbook will be released in early March.

Wilson says, "At Exponential we are passionate about church multiplication. Currently less than 4% of US churches ever reproduce. We are serious about seeing that number increase to greater than 10%. We call it our “4 to 10” mission. I’m giving my life to that mission as each 1% increase in multiplying churches has an ASTOUNDING impact on the world. This new book continues the church multiplication conversation that Exponential seeks to steward."

Todd Wilson
Exponential Director, Author

Todd Wilson is co-founder and director of Exponential (exponential.org), a community of activists devoted to church multiplication. The international organization’s core focus is distributing resources for church multiplication leaders.

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

After a two-year wrestling match with God, Todd entered full-time vocational ministry as the executive pastor at New Life Christian Church where he played a visionary and strategic role for several years as New Life grew and implemented key initiatives such as multisite, externally focused outreach, and church planting. His passion for starting healthy new churches continues to grow. Todd now spends most of his energy engaged in a wide range of leading-edge and pioneering initiatives aimed at helping catalyze movements of healthy, multiplying churches.

Todd has written/co-written multiple books, including Stories of Sifted (with Eric Reiss), Spark: Igniting a Culture of Multiplication, Becoming a Level Five Multiplying Church (with Dave Ferguson), and More: Find Your Personal Calling and Live Life to the Fullest Measure (Zondervan Publishing).

Will Mancini
Author, Speaker

Will Mancini wants you and your ministry to experience the benefits of stunning, God-given clarity. As a pastor turned vision coach, Will has worked with a variety of churches from growing megachurches and missional communities, to mainline revitalization and church plants. He is the founder of Auxano, creator of VisionRoom.com and the author of Church Unique: How Missional Leaders Cast Vision and Create Movement.

Will lives in Houston, Texas with his wife Romina and three children, Jacob, Joel and Abigail. He loves to get out of Houston as much as possible for mountain biking and snowboarding. His pastoral experience includes leadership development responsibilities at Clear Creek Community Church and Faithbridge UMC. Both churches have experienced dramatic impact in the same city but represent very different church cultures and unique ministry models. Will’s style blends the best of three worlds: process thinking from the discipline of engineering, communications savvy as an ad agency executive, and practical theology as a pastoral leader. His education includes a ThM in Pastoral Leadership from Dallas Theological Seminary and a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Penn State. As you walk the vision pathway with Will, we invite you check-out his blog as an additional resource.
