I plan to attend Exponential, the church planting conference in Orlando this coming April, and I would like to have several people join me this year. Indiana-Michigan conference has two free registrations available, and I would be glad to cooperate on transportation and lodging arrangements. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last year was a great opportunity to connect with attenders from other Mennonite Church USA conferences. I was pleased to hear some speakers emphasizing discipleship, and found this emphasis very compatible with a Mennonite understanding of following Jesus.
I specifically remember Mike Breen saying “If you make disciples you will end up with a church; if you build a church you won’t necessarily end up with disciples.”
DiscipleShift is the theme for Exponential 2013 – April 22-25, 2013 . To learn about the five crucial shifts needed to make and deploy disciples, see http://www.exponential.org/exponential-2013/.
