Equipping Labs | Houston
Labs are FREE for attendees of the Regional Event. Labs run from 9:00 – 11:30am on November 29. Choose from one of the following Labs:
Church Planting – The big dream of every church planter is to reach people far from God and introduce them to a life-changing relationship with Jesus. Whether you’re going or sending, starting a campus or a church, you’ll discover how to invite and include unchurched people from prelaunch to multiplying. Hosted by Stadia. Speakers: Jeremy Brown, Lead Pastor of Journey Church in Jackson, TN; and Craig Whitney, Director of Training with Stadia.
Leadership: Level 5 Leadership – Leading toward Level 5 requires a different paradigm for leadership. Learn about the kingdom-oriented shifts that need to be made to go from simply growing a church to launching a movement from the co-author of New to Five: Starting a Level 5 Multiplying Church. Hosted by Exponential. Speaker: Jeff Christopherson, Vice President of the North American Mission Board for the Send Network.
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; Larry Walkemeyer, Lead Pastor of Light & Life Christian Fellowship in Long Beach, CA.; and Dave Clayton, Lead Church Planter and Pastor of Ethos Church in Nashville, TN.
State of Church Planting in Texas Metro Areas – Join network leaders from Austin, DFW, and Houston as we discuss the current state of church planting in these Texas metro areas. We’ll paint a picture of ongoing church planting activities in each of these cities and share best practices for collaborative church planting. In addition, we’ll show how you can get involved in not only these areas, but also how you can take practical steps for beginning a collaborative initiative in your own city. Hosted by the Houston, Austin, & DFW Church Planting Networks.
