Called for More: Mobilizing God's People, God's Way

“As the father has send me, even so I am sending you” (John 20:21)
It’s easy to miss the power of Jesus’ words in this single verse – Jesus, the sent one, revealing to His followers an even bigger calling than they’d first understood. A mission extending beyond the relational warmth of their small group. A cause without the safety and security of their Master in bodily form. More is the theme for Exponential 2019.
The theme focuses on how each of us are called for more in our lives, churches, and networks. We will walk through the 6 chapters of Ephesians during the main sessions.
