Top Issues Planters Face

Todd Wilson and Eric Reiss

This report was prepared by the team at Exponential in partnership with Ed Stetzer. We listened to leaders with over 500 years of cumulative experience planting and working with hundreds of planters with the over 30 national leaders involved in this project. Individual planter interviews, online surveys, and volumes of real world experience were also included in the discovery process. This information will help you plant or help you help others plant for the glory of God and the advancement of His Kingdom.

Key components:

  • Leadership Development and Reproducing Culture
  • Financial Self-Sufficiency and Viability
  • Launch Team Development and Mobilizing Volunteers
  • Systems, Processes and Cultures
  • Casting Vision and Avoiding Mission Drift
  • Evangelism and Discipleship
  • Spiritual, Physical and Mental Health of the Planter and Family

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

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.
