Webinar:
Under the Hood: Renaissance NYC & City Center Church Berkeley

Get a look under the hood of healthy Reproducing Churches.

A growing number of church leaders are longing for something more than just adding attendees to our services, programs to our churches, and begging week in and week out for volunteers. They long to see disciple making-based kingdom multiplication. They long to become Reproducing Churches. 

Exponential began wondering what it would look like to build a community of Reproducing Churches that cared more about WHO they were catapulting and sending forward than WHAT they were accumulating and leaving behind. That led to an inaugural list in 2019 of Outreach Magazine’s List of 100 Reproducing Churches. And that community continues to grow.

Exponential is a growing community of leaders committed to accelerating the multiplication of healthy, reproducing faith communities. We exist to equip movement makers – like you – with actionable principles, ideas and solutions. With the Under the Hood series of conversations webinars, you’ll get a chance to hear in more detail, what it takes to become a Level 4 Reproducing Church.

Jordan Rice

Years ago, Renaissance Church was just a dream that belonged to a guy named Jordan Rice. While practicing law in New York and completing a masters in divinity, Jordan imagined what it would look like to build a church that removed many of the barriers people encounter when trying to discover who Jesus Christ is – a church that introduced people to the gospel in relevant and meaningful ways. In 2012, Jordan left his legal practice to work at a church in NYC as a church planting resident and began his journey to plant a church in Harlem — a neighborhood he’s always loved. Since September 2013, Jordan and his wife Jessica have been building a diverse Christian community in Harlem. Some of us are native Harlemites, and some of us just moved to Harlem in the last few months. We’re people from different cultures all coming together as a family in community groups, serving at community organizations, and trying to follow Jesus. And we’re growing by the grace of God, prayers, and the work of men and women that are joining the movement.

Ray Hudson

Ray has had a passion from a young age to do meaningful work that truly impacts the lives of people. He believes it’s important to choose “Purpose Over Preference.” Ray found purpose and meaning through his relationship with Jesus, who gave up his preferences to give his life for humanity. The starting place is creating a safe place where people can “Belong Before Believing.” His passion is to help people rethink their pre-conceived notions about faith in Jesus.

Ray is married to his wife of almost 13 years and they have 4 children, Gabriella, Zeke, Bella, and Leo. He is passionate about making his wife and family more important than what he does.

“I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one—I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.”
John 17:22-23
