Speakers: Justin Moxley, Planter Development Executive for Stadia; Craig Whitney, Director of Training at Stadia; and Filipe Santos, Executive Pastor of Ministries at South Bay Church.
Leadership: Level 5 Leadership – Leading toward Level 5 requires a different paradigm for leadership.

Hosted by Exponential. Speaker: Ralph Moore, Multiplication Catalyst with Exponential.
Multiplication – Accelerating healthy Kingdom multiplication – that's why Exponential exists. We have a passion for seeing the percentage of U.S. churches that reproduce increase from less than 4 percent to a tipping point of greater than 10 percent. We call it our "4 to 10" mission. This Equipping Lab will help you understand the context of your current situation, identify your pathway to multiplication, and give you practical guidance on what to expect on the journey. Hosted by Exponential. Speakers: Todd Wilson, co-founder of Exponential and author of the Exponential theme books Spark, Becoming 5, Dream Big, and Multipliers; and Bill Couchenour, Director of Deployment at Exponential and author of Unleashed! Finding Epic Adventure in Everyday Life.
State of Church Planting in the Bay Area – Join us as we discuss what the current state of church planting looks like in the Bay Area area. We’ll paint a picture of ongoing church planting activities and show you how you can get involved. Hosted by Transforming the Bay with Christ (TBC). Speakers: Nancy Ortberg, Chief Executive Officer of TBC; and Jon Talbert, Chief Convening Officer of TBC.
Worship Essentials for Church Planters – Worship is central when it comes to planting and growing a church. Not only will a thriving worship culture impact the depth of your church's growth, it will determine the size. If a thriving worship culture is so important, how do you create it and sustain it? How do you find the right worship leader to hire, and what do you look for in a leader? How can you build the type of relationship with your worship leader that results in life-changing worship services? With church plants having limited resources, how can you provide creative and irresistible worship environments on a shoestring budget? We'll tackle these questions and more in our Worship Essentials for Church Planters. Hosted by WestGate Church. Speaker: Josh Fox, who currently serves on staff with WestGate Church, leading worship and directing Anthem School of Worship. The heart of Anthem is to train the next generation of worship leaders and place them in churches throughout the Bay Area.
