Pre-Conference Session: Don't Start a Church, Plant One!

Church planting isn't easy, but it also isn't complicated. Nowadays, many church planters believe you need to raise a bunch of money, figure out how to gather a big crowd, and be a funny, relatable, extroverted, bible scholar if you're going to succeed. But the Apostle Paul didn't fit that bill, and you don't have to either. There are just four steps to planting a church, and we'll unpack how each of them gets applied on the ground in this interactive pre-conference:

1. Intense Spiritual Dependence
2. Sowing the Seeds of the Gospel
3. Watering Through Discipleship
4. Reaping a Church Plant as a Harvest

Speakers: Peyton Jones, Andrea Jones, Beau Moffat, Larry Acosta, Kurt Blake
Day / Time: Monday, October 23, 9:00am – 11:30am
Location: Room D3-B

Workshop Session 1: Plant Like Paul

The Apostle Paul was a master church planter, but he wasn't successful from on-the-job experience alone. Paul brought a number of ministry principles to the table mined from the depths of the Old Testament and the ministry of Jesus, before he stepped out on mission. Join us as we talk about these principles and how you can apply them as well.
Time: Monday, October 23, 2:30 – 3:30pm
Location: Room D3-B
Speakers: Peyton Jones, Andrea Jones

Workshop Session 2: 4 Essential Activities of Church Planting

Church planters are worried about many things, but few are needed. In this workshop, we’ll talk about why embodying Christ in your community, intense spiritual dependence, strategic witness, and rhythmic presence are the four essential activities for all church planters, regardless of context.
Time: Tuesday, October 24, 8:45 – 9:45am
Location: Room D3-B
Speakers: Larry Acosta, Peyton Jones

Workshop Session 3: Building Your Church Planting Team

You aren’t meant to plant a church alone. Jesus and Paul both assembled teams as part of their ministry journeys, and so it should be with you as well. Join us as we talk about how to identify team members and partner with them to advance the gospel rather than simply ordering them around.
Time: Tuesday, 2:30 – 3:30pm
Location: Room D3-B
Speakers: Peyton Jones, Andrea Jones, Beau Moffatt with Kurt Blake as Host

Session 4: Planting a Church That Plants Churches

One of the biggest mistakes a church planter makes is thinking that their single church is the end goal. Multiplication was hardwired into first-century churches, and you can’t plant a healthy church without taking that into account from day one. In this workshop, we’ll talk about how to plant your church as a sending hub where multiplication is built into your rhythms instead of an add-on.
Time: Wednesday, 8:45 – 9:45am
Location: Room D3-B
Speakers: Ralph Moore, Peyton Jones
