MULTIPLY Church Development Conference

From November 14-16, 2019, the fifth annual MULTIPLY Church Development Conference will take place in Colorado Springs, CO. The Director of Church Development and the Council on Ministry have been working to help provide an opportunity for those who are seeking to start new SDB expressions of faith or revitalizing their ministry to have a place to learn and connect.

We are partnering with Frontline Church Planting and their annual MULTIPLY Conference to serve SDBs. Leaders and speakers from around the country will gather for this weekend to share stories, knowledge, and strategies with one another. SDBs will have their own sessions as a cohort before and after to discuss specifically SDB related challenges.

We believe that there is great traction in advancing God’s Kingdom when mission-minded leaders gather to connect, reflect, and dream about what God is doing in our midst. There will be great content but we also believe that there will be great relationships built. It is our hope that by gathering leaders who dare to dream that God can and will do something fresh among SDBs as He allows His work to be done among ordinary folks like us.

The weekend will start Thursday, November 14 at 10am with some SDB Cohort sessions. On Thursday evening and Friday, we will join with others attending the MULTIPLY Conference where there will be a variety of topics and options of learning available through the main sessions and breakouts to speak to you where your ministry is currently at. On Saturday, we will meet together again as SDBs to worship at SpringsLife Church and talk about SDB-specific challenges in our ministries and to pray for one another. Please arrive when you can for the long weekend of events. 

The MULTIPLY Church Development Conference is open to all who are interested in breathing new life into their local church or our family of churches. The cost if you need lodging is $125. The cost if you do not require lodging is $25. We will arrange for pickup at the Colorado Springs Airport COS. We are looking forward to seeing you or a team from your church there!

You can register for MULTIPLY 2019 beginning June 1, 2019. 


“MULTIPLY was a gathering of leaders who are pushing into new territory while attempting to encourage other pioneers with shared tools, experiences, prayer, testimony, and vision. I believe this is the kind of wineskin that God will use to shape our church in for years to come.” – 2016 MULTIPLY Church Development Conference Attender
