Made For More | FREE Webinar

Would you like to see every Christian in your church released into their calling for the Kingdom? Perhaps you’ve been sensing there has to be more for your people than just recruiting them to fill positions. But Sunday’s coming and that makes it difficult to think about sending and releasing.


NewThing has partnered with Exponential to host an exclusive FREE webinar entitled, “Made for More: Mobilizing God's People, God's Way," at 2:00 pm EST on Thursday, December 13th. Made for More continues the critical conversation of church multiplication by looking at 6 critical shifts for a mobilization culture from the book of Ephesians. (To get preview of this conversation, check out the FREE Made for More Church Leader Resource Kit).

Register to receive the webinar link and to join us as we begin to look at what it would take to move from recruiting volunteers to equipping and empowering everyday life missionaries on mission for Jesus. 


Let’s explore what it would take to see a wave of mobilized believers making disciples where they live, work, study, and play!

Dream Big is the theme for Exponential 2017. Jesus challenged us with a big dream. If He had sketched out His big dream for His Church, we think it would be something like, “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 that Jesus gave His followers was the dream of a movement. Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, the ends of the earth—that is a very big dream! We are here because of that dream. As Christ followers and leaders of His church, Jesus is asking us to also dream big!

Join us in 2017 as we dive into what it looks like to dream big for your church—and the Kingdom.
