Whatever you do – don’t miss this years National New Church Conference in Orlando Florida on April 23-26. I’m pretty pumped about this conference! First because the conference is flat-out amazing and secondly because I’m serving as the President. And as President I do everything that Todd Wilson (the brains behind all this!) says to do.
Todd, who is the Conference Director e-mailed me to let you know that they have just launched their website at ExponentialConference.com. One of cool features of this new website will be a monthly podcast with a new church leader. This month’s podcast is an interview with me on The Reproducing Church – check it out right on the home page. And while you are at it, I would get your registration in right now so you can get the super early bird price of $99.
The theme will be Exponential: Moving Beyond Addition. The line-up of speakers are exactly who you would want to hear on this topic: Bill Hybels, Wayne Cordeiro, Ed Stetzer, Bob Roberts, Larry Osborne, Bil Cornelius, Mark Batterson, Jim Putman, Rick Rusaw, Matt Chandler, Darrin Patrick, Shawn Lovejoy, Vince Antonucci, Bob Logan, David Putman, Dave Ferguson (me!?!) and more!
In addition to phenomenal main plenary sessions the National New Church Conference will offer the following main session tracks:
- Pre-launch Track sponsored by Passion for Planting
- Post-launch Track sponsored by ChurchPlanters.com
- Reproducing Church Track sponsored by NewThing Network
- Networking Track sponsored by Church Planting Network
You should also consider getting there early for one of the pre-conference intensives. These alone are worth the trip:
