Regional - Southern California 2018

Hero Maker

Join hundreds of leaders for inspiration, encouragement and equipping at Exponential’s Southern California Regional in Irvine, 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.
