Brandon Grant is the founding and lead pastor of Rise City Church in Lakeside, CA — a suburb in East County San Diego. Brandon and his family moved from Illinois to start Rise City Church in 2013. Since its launch, the church has quickly grown to 1,100 people, baptized nearly 300, given over $1 million away, and planted 6 new churches. Rise City was recently named on Outreach's Top 100 list of reproducing churches in the United States. Brandon is married to the love of his life, Jamie, and he is the father of four young children — Elyse, Shepherd, Hope and Connor.


Workshop Session 2: How to Maintain (or Kickstart) a Vision for Church Planting
After a new church launches, there are many voices and demands that can distract from the initial vision of being a multiplying church. In this lab, we will share stories and provide practical insight for how you can maintain that vision of being a multiplying church. Even if you're in an established church and want to implement a vision of multiplication for the first time, these tools could be helpful for you.
Time: Wednesday, 8:45 – 9:45am
