What I'm Teaching at Exponential West 2013

Exponential West

Exponential WestI just received final word about the sessions I’ll be teaching at Exponential West at Saddleback Church in a few weeks. It’s not too late to join me!


Session 1: Going Social to Plant Churches
Planting churches requires us to be relational, which means getting offline. But what if real relationships could be initiated and stimulated using social media? We’ll talk about how to take a new church from ground zero to a strong launch and beyond using Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms.
Time: Tuesday 2:30-3:30pm
LocationModular Buildings//Room 308

Session 2: Leading a Church Plant On a Small Budget 
Possibly the No. 1 question new church planters ask is, How can I raise enough money to do this right? While money helps ministry get off the ground, it’s also possible to learn the art of church “hacking”. Join church planter Brandon Cox for discusson on how to pull together a movement on a minimal budget.
Time: Wednesday 8:45-9:45am
LocationModular Buildings//Room 310

Session 4: Leadership Structures for New Church’s First Year
Somewhere between the planter and spouse doing it all themselves and a fully robust staff is a healthy mix of staff and volunteers that works. We’ll talk through the kind of leadership structure that makes sense in a church that’s aggressively making disciples in its first year or so of ministry.
Time: Wednesday 4:30-5:30pm
LocationModular Buildings//Room 405-407

Session 5: Leadership Conversations hosted by New Thing
Avoiding “Flame Out”
Time: Thursday 8:45-9:45am
