You deserve a break from this Indiana winter, so why not head to sunny and warm Orlando for the 2018 HGC – Exponential conference? The dates are February 26 – March 1. Tickets are still available, but you will want to register ASAP and make your travel plans.
Healthy Growing Churches is sponsoring an Exponential Preconference (Monday @ 1:00 through Tuesday @ 11:30) titled “Wired for Impact.” The conversations will focus on what’s holding you and your church back from making greater impact. The keynote speakers include Shawn Lovejoy (www.couragetolead.com), Wayne Schmidt (General Superintendent of the Wesleyan Church), and Brad Brisco (www.namb.net). Ted talk speakers include Debbie Salters, Steve Chiles, Beth Ehlert, Ben Stears, Ben & Leigh Ann Luttrell, Tom Planck and Greg Wiens. This is also an incredible time to connect with other Church of God leaders and make some new friends as the HGC Preconference is open to anyone attending Exponential. These are going to be incredible sessions!
The theme for 2018 Exponential (https://exponential.org/2018) is HeroMaker. “The theme focuses on the shift from being the hero to coming alongside others for them to become the heroes in our church’s unfolding story. Leading a level 5 multiplying church requires Christ-like humility, dying to self, a God-given, Kingdom vision and several daring strategy shifts.” The Exponential general sessions will unpack what it means to be a HeroMaker in a way that will challenge, inspire and motivate you.
If the church is going to effectively pursue the Great Commission, then we must shift from an addition mindset to a multiplication mindset. That includes multiplying disciples (making disciple-makers) AND multiplying churches. The population of the world is growing exponentially, so we will not make much headway reaching the world for Christ merely by adding disciples. There is a paradigm shift going on in the church in the US today, and Exponential is leading the way. Exponential installs multiplication DNA better than any group I know of. It is impacting the work of Indiana Ministries and our staff ministries in significant ways. The lineup of general session speakers is incredible! So grab a few of your staff and/or leaders and make your way to Orlando at the end of this month.
