Could you be a local host for this year's Roundtables?
Are you a leader that:
understands the urgency of shifting focus towards reproduction and multiplication in the church of Europe?
understands the power of a leadership united a common vision?
knows the importance of exposing a young generation to the topic if church planting?
wants to be a part of a community with a cause and to work and embrace the vision of Exponential:
to see reproduction and multiplication become the norm in the language and behaviour for the church of Europe?
If this is true, we believe you could be a host for the upcoming Exponential Roundtables.
We invite you to take leadership in bringing together the entrepreneurs and a generation of young passionate leaders, sitting around tables and listening, engaging and challenging each other to spread the gospel, and multiplying disciples, leaders and new churches in their environment. You facilitate conversations where the gathering consists of 40% input from main European speakers (either videos made available from our website, from zoom calls with clusters of nations, from workshops, or from live speakers of your choice), and 60% time for reflection, engagement around tables and lunch time. Among the participants, we believe the most needed conversation in our time is: How can we move the church from declining to growing into a place of reproduction and multiplication. How can we TOGETHER - Equip to Multiply?
200 Roundtables in Europe
Exponential is a community with a cause. Our common vision is to see reproduction and multiplication become the norm in the language and behavior of the church of Europe. Our topic for this year's Roundtables is TOGETHER - Equip to Multiply.
Together with the board, our partners, and the NC2P network in Europe, we believe that more than 200 leaders in Europe are ready to host an Exponential Roundtable in their city.
What does it require from you?
Connect with Exponential leadership:
We want to have a kick-off meeting with you in the summer. The exact date will be announced in June.
If the situation allows, we want to invite all of our local hosts to a host gathering, to be held in Berlin 12-14 October 2021. We want to work together preparing the main theme for Roundtables, but also to offer in-depth teaching, training and inspiration to our Roundtable leaders and hosts.
What do we need from you?
You will need to take the hosting responsibility and lead the gathering 13 November, and be the main point of contact with Exponential. You will also need to secure a place and nice environment where people can sit around tables (this is required) and where you have the needed technical equipment and a high-speed internet to play the seminars.
Teams are needed to execute the conference. We suggest you at least should have people responsible for:
You will need to provide at least one proper meal for the participants, with beverages and snacks available throughout the day.
High-speed internet connection with a screen to show videos and to connect to Zoom.
A setup for audio and lighting which meets the capacity requirements for your gathering size, including equipment needed for live seminars if you're doing this.
A technical person who can be the contact point for Exponential.
You will have ongoing access to the registration list for your city, and you will also need to have a solution where non-registered participants can register and pay the registration fee.
We will need you to take some marketing responsibility through your own network locally. You can find all information needed on our website and access flyers that you can use. We provide:
- Information on our website in your language.
- Flyers that can be used for marketing.
What do you get from us?
Exponential is responsible for all information, registration, the program and the content of Roundtables. It is one gathering expressed through 200 Roundtables in your own languages.
We will make the information available on our website, in newsletters and through social media, but are at the same time dependent on your local commitment for local marketing.
We create a registration system including all languages and nations that will arrange Roundtables. Registration starts 1 July for the places where there's a registered Roundtable.
The program will consist of 40% input from main European speakers and 60% time for reflection, interaction around tables and lunch time.
The topic is: "TOGETHER - Equip to Multiply" and every participant will have access to an online book on this topic from European authors. Our goal is that there will be follow up gatherings after Roundtables, which are initiated locally. Roundtables could be a starting point to work TOGETHER in order to equip for multiplication.
Although the teaching will be in English, we will provide the main sessions and workshops with subtitles in your languages. The interactive elements will of course be in your own language, and the material available in as many European languages as possible.
Exponential Roundtables will be one gathering held over different time zones in more than 200 places in Europe.
We are looking forward to being together with you on Saturday 13 November 2021. Because we have one gathering for 200 Roundtables in cities located in different time zones across Europe, each Roundtable will begin at different times depending on the nation. Please look at the map to find out when it starts in your city.
There will be direct communication between the different cities, and between the different cities and the host studio in Berlin.
We are looking forward to hearing from you. Take the challenge and register as a host for Exponential Roundtables 2021. We could be more than 5000 leaders in Europe, connected from 200 cities, all committed to the vision of seeing a multiplying church planting movement in Europe.
