Exponential is a growing community of leaders committed to accelerating the multiplication of healthy, reproducing faith communities. We equip movement makers with actionable principles, ideas, and solutions. We are passionate about accelerating multiplication through movement makers! Here are a few resources to help equip you and accelerate multiplication in your context.

RESET Summit

An unparalleled lineup of church practitioners will guide you through moments of reflection for where you currently are, where you have been, and what needs to be RESET for the future. Prepare to lead with confidence in the post-COVID Church!


Regional Conferences

Exponential Regionals are designed to make the main stage programming at our national event in Orlando more accessible to church leaders in local geographic areas. These gatherings are for leaders who are unable to attend our national event OR need a more affordable option to bring their entire team. These events are shorter in length than our national event to help leaders save on travel expenses BUT are still filled with the full punch of the national event theme. These gatherings include pre-conference equipping labs and 5 main sessions.
