PRE-CONFERENCE: Multiplication – Hosted by Exponential
Accelerating healthy Kingdom multiplication — that's why Exponential exists. We have a passion for seeing the percentage of U.S. churches that reproduce increase from less than 4 percent to a tipping point of greater than 10 percent. We call it our "4 to 10" mission. This Equipping Lab will help you understand the context of your current situation, identify your pathway to multiplication, and give you practical guidance on what to expect on the journey. We'll also look at the impact of micro and bivo on the future of the church.

MAIN SESSION 5: Made to WIN More
The enemy will do everything possible to thwart God's plan for more mobilization as described in Ephesians. But in Christ, we are called to win this battle. To do so, we much consecrate ourselves for Jesus and his mission. Individually, the enemy will attempt to hinder God's fullness in us. Corporately, when Paul speaks of "principalities and powers," it is another way of saying systems of oppression, influenced by the demonic. But, the good news is we are made to "WIN" this battle and are commissioned for "MORE!"
