Exponential Conference is a growing community of leaders committed to accelerating the multiplication of healthy, reproducing faith communities. Over the past several years, Exponential has also served as a vision stimulator and community builder for the Church Multiplication Collective of The Wesleyan Church, as we dream and strategize about the expansion of God's kingdom on earth.

Bring your church multiplication team and dream with thousands of church planting leaders for four days of inspiration, encouragement and equipping at Exponential. The conference will feature 175+ speakers, 125+ workshops, 9+ tracks, 5,000 church planting leaders and sunny Orlando, Florida.

Dream Big is the theme for Exponential 2017. Jesus challenged us with a big dream: "You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes up on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth" (Acts 1:8). The dream Jesus gave us was the dream of a movement--Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and the ends of the earth! Dive into what it looks like to dream big for your church—and the Kingdom.
