Exponential Conference Resources


We sent some our East Campus launch staff to the Exponential Conference last week.  I could feel the buzz from Orlando all the way up here in Chicago.

Doug Gamble gave us an update in staff meeting yesterday and I’m trying to figure out how we can send a leadership group next year.  It was inspiring to hear Doug describe the energy from a movement that is growing (and growing exponentially!) to launch new churches and new campuses of existing churches.

Suncrest actually hosted this conference 4 years ago and had a few hundred people here.  This year…2800!

One of the things I’m most proud of from guys/leaders in my generation is that it seems there is a real spirit of sharing as many resources as possible with one another for as cheaply as possible.  Much of it is even open-sourced for free.  People could get rich off selling this stuff if they wanted to, but they don’t.  They want to share what they are learning and developing with as many people as possible so all churches and leaders will benefit.

In addition to being free, these leaders teach both formally in leading conference sessions, but are also willing to be informal and candid behind the scenes.  The authenticity is powerful.  Below is a link from Dave Ferguson’s blog with some of that FREE video.
