Regional - Bay Area 2018

Hero Maker

Join hundreds of leaders for inspiration, encouragement and equipping at Exponential’s Bay Area Regional in Fremont, CA. Register early as space is limited at these smaller, more intimate gatherings.


Hero Maker is the theme for Exponential 2018. 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. Marked by a sense of holy and humble tenacity, leaders of a Level 5 multiplying church shift from being the hero and instead leverage their power and influence to become hero makers that lift up and support others.

The Mission

Our Need for Reproducing Churches

“I love what Exponential is doing to focus on multiplication, specifically the mission to see the percentage of U.S. churches that ever reproduce increase to greater than 10%. That’s a mission worth giving our lives to.”

Ed Stetzer, Executive Director of the Billy Graham Center for Evangelism at Wheaton
