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).

Todd is married to Anna, and they have two adult sons who are both married – Ben to Therese and Chris to Mariah.

Eric Reiss

The life of a rodeo clown is a life of danger. Fortunately, Eric Reiss navigates the safer waters of helping churches and non-profits do design and print projects all over the United States. He also serves as the executive pastor for a recent church plant just outside of Washington D.C. (thesurge.cc). He is a songwriter and recording artist with a quirky sense of humor, and is very much in love with his wife, Karen, and their well-above-average daughter, Evangeline. He resides in Burke, Va.
