What to expect at Exponential 2015

So this will be my very 1st Exponential experience…although people from my church has been going from there very beginning.  I’ve been going to the Orange Conference each year (and loved it).  But, with my shifting role at New Life, they wanted me to go to Exponential this year.  So, although I was sad to not be at Orange this year, I said of course.

Unknown-1Then, my experience at Exponential just got better in the last two weeks when Todd Wilson asked me to be lead up the Social Media Team for Exponential.  Not only was I honored to be on the team but to lead it up was very exciting news.

So this is what you are going to get from Exponential this year from the Social Media Team….Access, Access, Access!!!!!!

That’s right, we will have access to all the behind the scenes operations, speakers and ministry leaders as well as cool interviews with church planters from all over.  It will be great.  So, when you arrive in Tampa, make sure you do a few things…

  1. Bookmark Exponential on your web browser as all the days activities will be posted and highlighted here.  This is your 1st stop throughout the day to see cool things happening.
  2. Follow @churchplanting and the hashtags #exponential and #churchplanting
  3. Follow Bloggers Tom Pounder, Cory Sullivan and Ron Furgerson as they blog about the conference.  All blog posts will also appear on the Exponential page as well.
  4. Follow Exponential, Tom, Cory, Ron, and DJ Chuang on Twitter as they will have lots of activity going on.
  5. Get familiar with the facility before you arrive!  Here is the map.
  6. There are a ton of great Sponsors here!  Check them out in the Sponsor area.  They are all on in the Gatheria area.

But what if you can’t make it to Tampa, can you still experience Exponential?!?  You bet.  You can still participate in all the social media interaction, blog readings and Shared Experience page AS WELL AS watch the General Session LIVE from the Digital Pass.  It really is the next best thing!

It is really going to be a great week in Tampa at Exponential.  Hopefully we’ll catch a ton of people doing a ton of great stuff and learning a lot that will help their ministries that we will be able to share with everyone.  So…let the games begin!
