Last night we had 26 people show up for the first official meeting as we get ready to launch ExponentialChurch.tv in just a few short months. I shared my story and then the stories of both the founders of Microsoft and the forgotten (and poor) 3rd founder of Apple. Surely if these few individuals could change our world, certainly we the founders of Exponential, with the power of the Holy Spirit living in us, can change the world as well was my premises. The key is to rely on God and take some chances.
We have 6 blocks parties and 2 preview Experiences planned, as well as some other outreach opportunities, before our October 17th launch so Chad shared how people could get involved. We then practiced how to easily share the story of Exponential with others in the community and we each set goals for how many people we’ll share the story with this up-coming week. All in all it was a great first meeting and people hung around for quite awhile afterward getting to know each other and strategizing with others in how to best accomplish their specific parts of the mission and vision.
Thanks to Jeff and Alana Case for hosting. Next week we’ll be meeting at Chad and Tammy Chute’s house. For more info or directions, shoot me an e-mail at gilbert@ExponentialChurch.tv. Below is a flier I put together with more of what’s happening:
