I am closing in on my first year as a full-time staff member with Healthy Growing Churches. In multiple ways, it has been an exciting eleven months. I have a collection of amazing stories to tell of the ways God is using HGC to impact the Church.
The nature of my HGC role puts me in close proximity with hundreds of pastors who are in the trenches sharing the Gospel, leading their teams, and helping their churches build bridges into the communities they serve.
I am so encouraged by the questions I am hearing pastors ask and the conversation those questions are creating. I don’t remember a time in the Church when so many pastors and church leaders were wrestling with what it looks like for their church to more effectively make disciples who make disciples to a third and fourth generation of reproduction. Beyond that, I am fired up by the number of pastors I also hear leading their congregations to embrace a church multiplication vision and strategy.
It is becoming extremely clear that we are on the brink of a significant wave of new churches, campuses, and ministries within the HGC network as a result!
One of the big reasons we connected our annual HGC network gathering to the Exponential Conference was the hope that it would support and increase the energy around the multiplication conversation we have watched develop recently. More than that, we hoped it would continue to spark and inspire even more multiplication visions within the HGC network.
Truth is, NO ONE installs multiplication DNA better than the Exponential Conference. And that is why the next move you need to make after you finish reading this blog is to make plans to be in Orlando in February of 2018.
If you are sensing God’s call on your life to make more and better disciples you need to be there. If God is giving you a dream for your church to multiply then attending Exponential East is a must. If neither of these items are on your radar then it’s even more important that you make plans to attend.
I promise you will not be disappointed.
Oh, one more thing, do not come alone. Bring your staff, a couple board members (or all of them!), or some key leaders. I guarantee you all will leave with a holy discontent. I assure you that you all will drive or fly away from Orlando with an even bigger dream for your church than the one you are currently pursuing.
