I am a huge fan of nearly all things Exponential. Not the math function, though I guess that’s cool too. There is a church planting and leadership conference that started here in Orlando that has, in recent years, expanded to hosting regional events throughout the US known as Exponential.
I love it for two reasons. One, they seem to be out in front of many of the issues facing today’s churches and offer real, practical solutions for getting ahead of the problem instead of letting it consume your church. And two, their heart is for multiplication, planting, and seeing the growth of the kingdom come through small seeds being planted in every area of the world. Two things I resonate with wholeheartedly.
And so, even though I don’t usually do this, I wanted to share an article written on the Exponential site. Think your church is healthy and growing in a way that reflects Jesus in all that it does? Well… maybe not as much as you’d think.
If you like this and haven’t already read my book, Deconstructing Church, it’s full of more insight into this very problem. Find it now on Amazon!
