Our Need for Multiplication Training
“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. But, for that to happen, we need to move from being the heroes of our own stories to becoming the hero makers of others in God’s story. That’s why I’m excited to be speaking at the 2018 HeroMaker conference in Orlando.”
Ed Stetzer, Executive Director of the Billy Graham Center for Evangelism at Wheaton
