Our passion is to invite, equip, encourage and empower planters, pastors, and other leaders who will be part of a multiplication movement. Boot Camp is designed to help this happen!

Both launching a church and then continuing through year five, and beyond, have some of the same but also some different issues. It’s not enough to just launch. Multiplying is the biblical way to reach the world for Jesus. This training helps you to get started but also to look at what is needed through year five, and beyond. Anyone in ministry can gain from this event.  Check out these sessions.

Thom Gardner on Spiritual Wholeness and Growth. Thom is the founder of Restored Life Ministries, Inc., traveling internationally teaching and ministering in the area of spiritual wholeness and growth. He is also an ERC pastor. Each participant will receive a copy of his book Everything That Grows. Thom says, “Everything that grows, whether in the natural realm or in the spirit realm, follows the same repeated cycle—a continuum of growth that Jesus described in one of His metaphorical pictures of the kingdom of God. Here we define the kingdom of God as, “the ever-increasing influence of the life and peace of Christ in and through us.”

Dave Williams on Distinctly You! Increasing self-awareness and improving personal relationships.
Dave is the ERC Director of Church Health. Distinctly You! guides leaders to self-discovery.  God has wired you in a distinct way and He wants you to live distinctly so others are impacted.  Through your Distinctly You! profile you will learn your strengths and blind spots as a leader.  With this self-knowledge you will be better prepared to manage yourself and you will learn why other people behave the way they do and ways to improve your interactions with people different then yourself.

Chuck Frank on Multiplication of leaders, disciples, and churches. Chuck is the ERC Director of Multiplication.

Rich Thornton, along with Chuck Frank and others, will share Best Practices for Church Planting and More. Rich is the ERC Church Planting Field Director.
