Multiplication Movements – Leadership Revolution: Using APEST to Create Movemental Culture
An Equipping Lab for Church Leaders
At this point, many churches and church leaders have accepted the idea of the APEST model in principle for their local expression, denomination or agency. But it’s time to push past principle and paradigm and dive headlong into practice. If we will do that, we will see a leadership revolution on our hands that can finally lead us to the frontlines of church-as-movement. In this Pre-Conference, we will do a very brief overview of APEST, and then shift to discussion around the Marks, Growth, Activation, Implementation and Stewardship of this leadership in your culture.
