Rodney is the founding pastor of OneLife Church in Knoxville, TN. He graduated from the University of Tennessee with a degree in communications and moved on to receive his master's in church planting from Liberty Theological Seminary. OneLife Church has grown from 12 people in his living room in 2009 to two Knoxville campuses, and has helped to launch three autonomous church plants. OneLife's passion for church multiplication has led Rodney to be a coach and speaker for Leadership Network's Multisite Innovation Lab, Missionary Church's Ignite Church Network, and the Church Multiplication Training Center's Generate Training Intensives. Rodney has a passion for church plants & church planters and desires to see a discipleship movement that is so great that only God could get the credit for it.


PRE-CONFERENCE: Generate Christ-Followers to the Fourth Generation – Hosted by Generate
Multiplication of Christ-followers can really happen! Most churches have not produced disciples who multiply other disciples. In this session we will present the complete Generate One training material that explores how to launch a culture of multiplication that has been proven to produce disciples who reproduce disciples. In this track we will help you think through the steps you need to take to launch a multiplication culture.
Day / Time: Tuesday, 8:00am – 11:30am
Location: Faith Hall - Room 301D

Workshop Session 5: Make the Founding Dream of Your Church a Reality
When you boil it all down, you probably started with the dream of making disciples who reproduce disciples. Dan Grider and his team will share how you can establish a culture that will launch a multiplication movement instead of simply launching a single church plant. In this workshop Dan will share concepts from his new book, Starfish Movement, on how to launch rapidly reproducing communities. The leaders on their team will share stories that illustrate how you can launch a process that will "Xcellerate" a movement in your church. If your original dream was to launch a multiplication movement, learn how to take the first step. This process has produced over 100 churches in the past few years.
