Cultivating a Naturally Supernatural Lifestyle — Hosted by Dandelion Resourcing

​”My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.” (1 Corinthians 2:4-5) Are supernatural signs and wonders just for the New Testament and churches in the Global South, or can they form a key part of our experience here in the West today? How can supernatural Holy Spirit activity supercharge our evangelism and discipleship – and our church planting? What are the Biblical, wise and reproducible steps to train those we lead in these gifts?Alex and Hannah Absalom have spent 25 years in church leadership building naturally supernatural cultures, where the presence of the Holy Spirit transforms the church’s witness to the world. As well as training many leaders, their 3 young-adult sons have been raised in this environment, where making disciples and going on mission are inseparable from having a naturally supernatural lifestyle.Currently the Absalom family are in the early stages of planting a network of home churches, so they will be sharing from their current story of church planting that is openly naturally supernatural, as well as being strongly on mission and focused on disciple-making.If you hunger to see more of the supernatural gifts operate in your life, family and ministry – and are looking for grounded ways to teach and model this to those you lead and love – then this pre-conference will be for you. There will be stories, Biblical theology, practical tips, activation exercises, coaching on introducing and developing this in your church, disciplines you can live out, and more!Topics To Be Covered Will Include:Building a Kingdom TheologyGiving you a highly memorable and shareable theological model for living and operating in the power of the Holy Spirit. We want you to feel confident from the Bible that exercising the supernatural gifts is how Jesus intends us to live today.Prayer and Spiritual WarfareIf our battle is not against flesh and blood, we recognize that there is a lot of spiritual warfare that most of us either ignore or for which we are ill-equipped – but where Jesus grants us great authority which we must learn to exercise.The Prophetic GiftsHearing God’s voice is the starting place for all obedience-based discipleship – so come learn simple ways to train and activate these vital gifts in those you lead.HealingThroughout church history Christians have exercised gifts of supernatural healing, which reveal the Father’s goodnesses and love. We will spend time showing you how to do this with wisdom, authority and love.DeliveranceJesus sent us out to drive out demons, but this aspect of being naturally supernatural perhaps intimidates us the most. Come learn some simple and pastorally sensitive ways to minister the victory that Jesus won on the cross.TonguesPossibly the most controversial of all the gifts, we will share some tips on how to benefit from this gift that Paul longed for us all to exercise with wisdom.MiraclesYes, it is possible to step more into a miraculous lifestyle, and together we will discuss the mindset and heart attitude that characterizes those who live like this.How To Live All This Out In PracticeTons of practical tips on how to make all this a lifestyle – both within the church (e.g. building an intentional culture without freaking out everyone!) and on mission (using these gifts to demonstrate, and then declare, the reality of the Kingdom of God).+ lots of stories and application ideas throughout!Come hungry and ready to learn, dialogue, ask great questions, and jump into practical activation exercises that will help you move forward both personally and as a leader! Speakers: Alex Absalom and Hannah AbsalomDay / Time: Monday 1:00pm – 5:00pm and Tuesday 8:00am – 11:30amLocationHenry Chapel


The Level 5 Disciple Making Church – Hosted by

​Disciple making is typically one of the things that a church does. But in a disciple making church, it becomes the focus of what a church does. Behind all decisions is a consciousness that we are called to be disciples and make disciples. This pre-conferences talks about the five levels of disciple making at a church.Disciple Making Challenges for North Americans — Bobby HarringtonThis is a conversation about the state of discipleship and disciple making in the North American church. A special focus will be on the underlying elements of renewal that must be sought if we are to see disciple making churches and disciple making movements in North America.Disciple Making at Levels 1 and 2 — Ben SobelsThe majority of churches in North America are not focused upon disciple making. This is both because of theology and because of the legacy of a Christendom that has dominated North American churches for the last two hundreds years. Ben will discuss solutions. These churches do not know, in a meaningful way, about the imperative of disciple making. When you are in these churches, you think of discipleship as one of the things a church does or as a broad category that applies to lots of different things. No understanding that Jesus-style disciple making is fundamentally important. You look at the experience of others. You read books and attend seminars.Disciple Making at Level 3 — Bill HullA level 3 disciple making church is focused upon growth of disciples. There are lots of activities and programs to help people to be disciples of Jesus. But these churches are weak at helping disciples to become disciple makers. You and your leaders all actively try disciple making. You start and enter into a discipling group. You develop some experiences. You stay with the experience and your understanding grows. It becomes a part of the ongoing commitment in your personal life and the personal lives of your leaders.Disciple Making at Level 4 — Dave ClaytonYou and your leaders are making discipleship groups an everyday reality. You and your leaders are reproducing your discipleship experience and are actively discipling other people in groups. Your leaders regularly reproduce discipling groups and there is an active culture of reproducing discipling groups. Your leaders are living our discipling relationships and advocating them for the whole church.Disciple Making at Level 5 — Jim PutmanYou and Your leaders regularly see multiplication of discipling groups. Reproduction is the norm. There is such a movement of disciple making and the DNA is so clear that something would have to happen and or you would intentionally stop it for the multiplication of disciple making to come to an end. It is the DNA of your leadership and church culture.Disciple Making Pastor — Jim Putman and Dave ClaytonIt takes a specific kind of church culture and a specific kind of church leader to create a disciple making church. There is not just an emphasis on disciple making skills, but there is a commitment to fasting and prayer and to catalytic church leadership decisions.Speakers: Bobby HarringtonBen SobelsBill HullDave Clayton, and Jim PutmanDay / Time: Monday 1:00pm – 5:00pm and Tuesday 8:00am – 11:30amLocation: Faith Hall – Room 301D

Leadership: Creating Healthy Culture for Teams & the Church – Hosted by Courage to Lead

All churches teach out of the same book. Most churches are performing the same songs. Why are some churches growing but most are not? It comes down to one word: Culture. Changing the culture within your church and with your team may provide the greatest opportunity for improvement and growth. In this pre-conference, we will talk about how to build a healthy team and church culture.Subjects Include: Characteristics of Healthy (and Unhealthy) Cultures Changing an Existing Culture Creating a More Passionate, Urgent Culture Catalyzing a More Missional Culture Designing Lifegiving Worship Services Building a Healthy Team … and more!Speakers: Shawn LovejoyChris Bell, and Larry MayerDay / Time: Monday 1:00pm – 5:00pm and Tuesday 8:00am – 11:30amLocation: Worship Center – Room 124


Made for More: Mobilizing God’s People, God’s Way – Hosted by Made for More and Disciples Made

Made for More: Mobilizing God’s People, God’s Way, dives into Paul’s letter to the church of Ephesus. Paul wrote Ephesians for the body of Christ to help them discover God’s design for the church and the fullness of the mission God has for every single person He has created. This Pre-Conference will highlight the six key shifts that are necessary to create a healthy culture of mobilization. This healthy culture will help church leaders shift their thinking from “volunteerism” to “mobilization” as you transition from a “We can do it. You can help” focus to a “You can do it, we can help” ministry.On Monday we will cover:Shift 1: Jesus has appointed His Church to express His fullness into every sphere of society. This is our foundation for mobilizing people — equipping every disciple to grow in the Lordship of Jesus and in their ability to share the gospel where they live, work, study and play.Shift 2: Every disciple is a unique, handcrafted-by-God vessel for expressing the fullness of Jesus. As leaders, we have a responsibility to lead our church to help every disciple investigate their personal calling that mobilizes them for a one-of-a-kind mission for more.Shift 3: God’s love for us and in us is the only sufficient motivation for mobilizing others — not guilt. We’re called to motivate people to serve by helping them understand how loved they are in Christ.On Tuesday we will cover:Shift 4: When you begin to surrender our strategies and our belief that you’re building the church while others help by filling the spots you’ve predetermined, you begin to wage the war Christ has called us to fight.Shift 5: Jesus has provided the organization to unleash more — found in the five-fold gifting of APEST (apostles, prophets, evangelists, shepherds, teachers). We need to help people see the Church as Jesus does.Shift 6: The people of God have already been sent and strategically placed by Jesus. And for many, those places are outside the walls of your church building.Speakers: Rob WegnerBrian PhippsTodd Wilson, and Derek Bell (Emcee)Day / Time: Monday 1:00pm – 5:00pm and Tuesday 8:00am – 11:30amLocation: Faith Hall – Room 301H

Multi-Ethnic – Hosted by Mosaix Global Network

Every pastor and church planter – indeed, every church, itself – faces a common set of challenges. Those seeking to establish churches that reflect the growing diversity of this country and, more specifically, the communities in which they reside, are uniquely challenged with an additional set of obstacles that, likewise, must be understood and overcome. If this is you, and toward such ends, Exponential in partnership with the Mosaix Global Network is pleased to offer seven hours of preconference training and five main conference workshops devoted to this discussion … and more than that, designed to equip you with specific knowledge, direction, and tools that can get you beyond rhetoric to results in this regard, when you return home. This year’s pre-conference will focus on five specfic areas:1. Theological UnderpinningsWhy such a church is no longer nice but necessary, no longer optional but biblical … and how to communicate this to others in an informed way, answer objections, etc.2. Structural DevelopmentHow such a church must learn to engage the community on three specific fronts simultaneously: spiritual, social, and financial to advance a credible and compelling witness of God’s love for all people.3. Practical PrinciplesWhat transferrable truths must influence decisions in such a church and, unlike in homogeneous churches, inform decision-making processes.4. Promising PracticesWays in which you can work smart (not hard) in order to make measurable progress in the months and years ahead.5. Financial ViabilityWhen your county begins to tax church property and/or the federal government takes away tax-exempt status for local churches, what will you do … and more importantly, what must you do now to position such a church not only to survive but to thrive in the years ahead.Speakers: Mark DeYmazSantes BeattyChristopher BenekChristopher Harris, and Mont MitchellDay / Time: Monday 1:00pm – 5:00pm and Tuesday 8:00am – 11:30amLocation: Education Building (E1) – Room 211

5Q Leadership Revolution: Using APEST to Create Movemental Culture – Hosted by 100 Movements

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 and process. If we will do that, we will help build a leadership revolution that can finally lead us to the frontlines of church-as-movement. We believe that APEST is one of the keys to unlocking and unleashing the potential held in the Body of Christ as a whole, as well as a main tool to mobilizing and maturing disciples. In this Pre-Conference, we will do a very brief overview of APEST, and then shift to the discussion around Fivefold Intelligence (5Q) and the Activation, Implementation, Equipping Growth, Marks of health and Stewardship of this leadership in your culture.Speakers: Alan HirschJessie CruickshankRich Robinson, and Brad BriscoDay / Time: Monday 1:00pm – 5:00pm and Tuesday 8:00am – 11:30amLocation: Education Building (E1) – Room 322


MultiSite: An Equipping Lab for Church Leaders – Hosted by MultiSite Solutions

Day 1 (Monday): Going Multisite The multisite movement began as a space solution for megachurches but has become a reproductive strategy for healthy, growing, outreach-oriented churches. Many church planters today are starting churches with a vision to reproduce and multiply through church planting and multisite strategies. In this pre-conference Lab, learn the basics of launching strong with multisite practitioners Jim Tomberlin, Rich Birch (multisite pioneer and founder of and Kadi Cole (multisite pioneer and former multisite director at Christ Fellowship in Palm Beach Gardens, FL).Day 2 (Tuesday): Growing Multisite The future of the multisite movement belongs to churches who want to move beyond reproducing one or two campuses, but instead long to see their church begin multiplying congregations exponentially. These pioneering churches seek to operate out of a multiplication culture by reproducing disciples and campuses at an accelerating rate. In this pre-conference lab, Jim Tomberlin, Greg Ligon (Leadership Network VP and co-author of the Multisite Revolution), Daniel Im (Founder and Director of Church Multiplication for at LifeWay Christian Resources) and Andy Addis (Pastor, Crosspoint Church, Hutchinson, KS) examine the characteristics of multiplying multisite churches and invite you to begin taking steps now toward becoming a future movement-making multisite church. Regardless of whether you are launching your first campus or your tenth, there are concrete steps you can take now to prepare for the new season of multiplication ahead.Monday Speakers: Jim TomberlinRich Birch, and Kadi ColeTuesday Speakers: Jim TomberlinGreg LigonDaniel Im, and Andy AddisDay / Time: Monday 1:00pm – 5:00pm and Tuesday 8:00am – 11:30amLocation: Education Building (E1) – Room 223

Thrive: Ministry and Organizational Development for Accelerating Generosity in the Multiplying Church – Hosted by Generis

Monday Session:Leveraging Data for Church Multiplication Success with Jim Sheppard (Generis), Matt Smay (Gloo), Ed Messman (Gloo), and Steve Caton (Generis)Church multiplication, whether church planting or multisite, is challenging in many ways. One of the challenges is to have the right information and data as you think through where to plant a church or where to start the next campus. There is a wealth of third party data — big data, if you will — that is available to help you make better decisions in this area. And then once you get the church plant or new campus up and running, you will want to develop the generosity of your people. Having good giving analytics is important. In this session, we will take a deep dive into the use of internal data (your church’s data) and external data (third party/big data) in formulating a plan for success in church multiplication.Tuesday Session:Why Family Ministry Matters In Your Multiplication Strategy with Jessica BealerEvery ministry leader dreams of being at the helm of a thriving ministry, a ministry that is purposeful, attractive and relevant. The reality is often a lot less idyllic. We pray, we plan, and we plug away. Occasionally something we said or did resonates and our congregation expands, but what if we could exchange addition for multiplication. In this breakout we’ll discuss how an effective Family Ministry strategy can spur unprecedented growth.Generosity to Fuel Your Multiplication with Dave DummittSomeone once said, “Vision frames the future, leaders activate the future, and generosity fuels the future.” If that’s true, then we ought to be creating a culture of generosity in our churches that goes way beyond a two minute offering moment in the weekend service. Dave Dummitt has made this an integral part of the multiplication strategy as the lead pastor and one of the core members of the original launch team for 2|42 Community 13 years ago. Under Dave’s leadership over the last 13 years, 2|42 has grown from a 40-member launch team to over 7,500 people meeting at 4 different campuses each weekend. This session will give you practical help to “fuel” your church’s multiplication vision.Monday Speakers: Jim SheppardMatt SmayEd Messman, and Steve CatonTuesday Speakers: Jessica Bealer and Dave DummittDay / Time: Monday 1:00pm – 5:00pm and Tuesday 8:00am – 11:30amLocation: AP Buildings – AP 10
