Resource Center

Welcome to the largest church planting and multiplication library in the world! We long to see multiplication become normative, to shape paradigms for measuring success in churches and help move the needle from less than 7% of U.S. churches reproducing to a tipping point of greater than 16%.

We’re excited about your multiplication journey to becoming a Level 5 multiplying church (Becoming Five). To help you on your journey, you’ll find all the resources you need by clicking on the tabs to the left — eBooks, print books, thousands of hours of video, audio, podcasts, training courses and more — most of which are FREE.

Years from now, we pray generations point back to this catalytic community that prioritized multiplication for God’s glory!

BECOME A MULTIPLYING CHURCH

Changing your church’s scorecard and operating system from addition to multiplication growth requires you to honestly assess where your church is on the multiplication spectrum. Exponential developed several assessment tools to help churches move toward multiplication by discovering their multiplication profile and pattern. One of the best places to start is with the Becoming 5 Assessment Tool. Church leaders who’ve taken the assessment say that learning about their multiplication profile has helped them find their starting point. Take the assessment now.

Exponential desires to provide the best resources to help you understand the core frameworks of becoming a multiplying church. Here are a few resources we believe will maximize your experience and help you move further faster.

This FREE eBook: Becoming a Level Five Multiplying Church continues a conversation started in the 2014 Exponential book Spark: Igniting a Culture of Multiplication, focusing on how we can each play our part in moving the needle on church multiplication. Focusing on the specifics of helping churches identify where they are on the multiplication scale (Levels 1 – 5) and what’s needed to become a Level 5 multiplying church, authors Todd Wilson and Dave Ferguson champion multiplication and equip future church multipliers to move beyond the prevailing addition-growth scorecards. “We need to rethink the operating system that’s producing growth but not producing multiplication—and aim for more healthy Kingdom growth that’s focused on multiplication.”  Download your eBook here.

Reproducing Churches Podcast: Over the years, it’s become clear to those watching it develop that the goal of Exponential has not been to throw a great conference, but to transform church multiplication by increasing the statistic of 4% of churches reproducing in America, to 10% and beyond.   Statistics demonstrate that this number has been climbing in the past decade, due largely in part to Exponential’s efforts to pour into reproducing leaders who reproduce churches. By shifting the goalposts of how we measure success, that statistic has also shifted.  If you’re new to the conversation of multiplication, or stuck wondering how to carry out the great commission, then this podcast is for you.

The Church Multiplication Challenge is a call to action for churches to embrace a new scorecard of healthy reproduction. The Challenge gives any church a simple 3-step process for endorsing a declaration of multiplication, discovering their current level of multiplication, and making a public declaration of their commitment to pursue healthy multiplication.

Every year Exponential introduces an annual theme to help drive the conversation deeper and mobilize leaders toward multiplication. Each theme helps provide framework for becoming a reproducing church.  There are multiple resources to help you understand and develop each theme. Click on each theme’s resource link below to learn more.

Together: Pursuing the Great Collaboration – 2020 Theme

What is missing from many of our efforts and strategies? Doing it Together!

We are all familiar with the Great Commission and the challenge to “Go.” There has been much taught on the Great Commandment and the need to go with “Love.” But it is the last part of Jesus’ mission – which was Jesus’ final prayer – that we have forgotten. It’s the Great Collaboration – that we are to go in love Together!

Frontlines: Tackling Current Issues Facing Pastors and Planters

Mondays at 2:00 p.m. ET in the Auditorium

The Frontlines program seeks to encourage and equip pastors and planters to better understand and navigate the current and future trends in church ministry. Hosted by veteran church multiplication leaders, each episode invites thought leaders and advanced practitioners in ministry to inform and inspire pastors and planters as they continue in day-to-day ministry.

The uncertainty, stress, and loneliness affecting church planters and pastors seems like it is at an all-time high. Each week, church leaders are faced with more and more complex issues to solve and decisions to make. And, even the best decisions made by church leadership teams seem to only result in more uncertainty and questioning by their congregation. This 12-episode weekly show will host conversations on the current issues church leaders are facing. Being on the frontlines of Kingdom advancement as pastor or church planter is a constant barrage of uncertainty and challenges.

Practical Multiplication: A Pastor’s Guide to Accelerating Multiplication

Wednesdays at 2:00 p.m. in the Auditorium

This show highlights Exponential’s core church multiplication frameworks with a focus on the everyday, practical nature of how the concepts can help pastors and church planters make disciples and multiply churches. The focus will be to introduce Exponential’s frameworks and bring them to life through conversation and story with Ralph Moore, Myron Pierce, and an “in the trenches” leader who is putting the particular episodes framework into practice. 

Each of the guests embodies the practices of multiplication as living examples of various stages along the Multiplier’s journey.

Candid Conversations: An Online, Interactive, Live Weekly Show on Racial Tensions

Thursdays at 2:00 p.m. in the Auditorium

The Candid Conversations Show is intended to help leaders engage in conversations about race in a healthy way. Each show focuses on a topic and helps participants unpack what the topic is, why it’s divisive, and what can be done to promote both change and unity. 

We live in one of the most divisive and divided times in our nation’s history. We are increasingly polarized over a growing number of topics including race. People of color are increasingly frustrated while white leaders are increasingly confused and paralyzed with how to engage the conversation. Many remain silent for fear of saying the wrong things. Contributing to the problem is the divisive nature of our words. We can no longer just use the “Webster’s Definition” of words. The word racism means different things to different people, and a growing number of words are explosive to at least one group of people. This new show does not seek to solve today’s problems. Instead, it seeks to focus on helping people enter the conversation via a safe platform, to demonstrate civil conversations amongst people who might disagree, and to equip leaders with the information they need to develop their own definitions of terms.

Exponential Collaboratives are a peer-to-peer learning space to help you move forward toward your vision for multiplication. Guided by trusted practitioners and thought leaders, these collaborative groups help you navigate the uncertainties of leadership so you can advance as a healthy, multiplying leader.

Each Collaborative is facilitated by a mentor leader who guides the group each week for a set period of time, 4 to 6 weeks.

Collaboratives Provide:

  • Resources to help encourage and support your journey holistically — spiritually, mentally, physically, relationally
  • Support as you navigate your work/life balance — family, marriage or singleness, parenting
  • Assistance with decision-making in times of high anxiety and uncertainty
  • A supportive space to connect with everyday ministry realities
  • An environment to connect relationally with other church planting peers

At Exponential, we are passionate about Kingdom multiplication, and we are working to inspire and equip leaders to change the primary metrics of success in the Church from addition to multiplication, and from accumulation to releasing.

The Multipliers Learning Communities were created to help forward-thinking leaders engage in peer-to-peer learning about the future of the church. Exponential’s Multipliers Learning Communities have served hundreds of diverse Kingdom leaders over the last decade guiding them to the critical paradigm shifts to embrace their vision and purpose to:

1. Lead churches that make disciples
2. Mobilize their church into daily mission
3. Build a legacy of lasting Kingdom influence through starting new churches.

The Learning Community journey consists of three separate gatherings in three different cities over an 7-month period (from Fall 2020 to Spring 2021) combining the relational, experiential and informational components required for transformation. Learning Community attendees build lasting connections with fellow church multipliers while gaining the innovative ideas that will lead to implementing an action plan in their local context. Today’s the day! Join a Learning Community!

1 DAY | 100 LEADERS | TED-STYLE TALKS | CONVERSATIONS

In this increasingly divisive cultural moment, the call that we are Better Together has never been greater. Will the church find its place in championing and modeling unity? It starts with healthy conversations!
