Alignment Conference

Aspen Group, a partner of the NewThing Network, has been hosting the Alignment Conference for more than a decade. At this year’s Alignment Conference, they'll do a deep-dive into the topic of multiplication. David Kinnaman, president of Barna Group, will return as a keynote speaker to unpack key findings from a new study on multisite and church plants. Other keynote speakers include Jim Tomberlin, Wade Burnett, and Dave Ferguson, as well as plenty of breakouts with other trusted church leaders.

Breakout led by NewThing's Executive Director: 

Creating a Leadership Pipeline for Church Plants and Multi-sites with Patrick O’Connell
Churches can only multiply if there are leaders ready to lead at new locations. Join Patrick O’Connell for a fast-paced look at how to fill your leadership pipeline so that you’re ready to grow. As the director of NewThing Network, Patrick will join with other NewThing leaders to share ways to cultivate a culture of leadership development, and a look at the practical skills needed for campus pastors and church planters to shepherd and operate a start-up church.

Main stage session led by NewThing's Lead Visionary:

Gaining Momentum with Multiplication with Dave Ferguson
Dave Ferguson, lead pastor of Community Christian Church in Naperville, Illinois, will share his thoughts and insights that have led his church to become one church with twelve locations across Chicagoland. Dave will challenge leaders to move beyond tactics to pursue exponential expansion. As co-founder of Exponential, the world’s largest church planting organization, Dave has plenty of field experience helping churches go from start-up to sustainable. Growth-oriented leaders will be inspired and challenged to build a vision for radical, rapid multiplication.
