Vice President


Why I Love This Opportunity

Chris Lagerlof

Senior Associate

I love Exponential and its passion and mission to see more movements of healthy, reproducing faith communities. Exponential is a network of networks and a growing community of leaders committed to accelerating the multiplication of healthy, reproducing faith communities. They equip movement makers with actionable principles, ideas, and solutions. They are passionate about accelerating multiplication through movement makers!

About This Organization

Exponential is a cause-based, mission-driven non-profit ministry founded in 2006. They are a community of activists who champion the cause of healthy reproducing churches. They are passionate about seeing multiplication become a primary and widely embraced measure of success in the church. We equip church leaders to break free of their deeply rooted paradigms of addition-based church accumulation and growth, opting instead for reproducing and sending cultures.

The percentage of U.S. churches that ever reproduce is low (7%), but momentum is building, and the percentage is increasing (an increase from 4% over the last decade).
The Exponential dream is to see this percentage increase to greater than 16% (the threshold that sociologists consider the tipping point for a new normal). Every 1% increase represents
millions more people spending eternity with God.

They seek to serve Christian leaders and organizations who have the potential to influence and shape the future of disciple-making, mobilization, and church multiplication. Instead of competing with other ministries, They want to see their fruit growing on other people’s trees. Exponential exists to pour fuel on what God is already doing through churches, networks, other organizations, and leaders by saying, “you can do it; how can we help?”

Just as the Chamber of Commerce of a city advocates and champions business without competing with any businesses, Exponential champions healthy reproducing churches and serves those pursuing multiplication. Working with over 800 national influence leaders and serving over 100 networks and denominations, They are helping shift the paradigm of success in the U.S. church—and leading the future conversation about multiplication.

As we’ve narrowed our focus to the mission of seeing the percentage of churches that ever reproduce increase to greater than 16%, God has continued to expand their impact and their opportunities. They partner with strong, like-minded, pioneering churches and networks committed to the church’s future, to mobilizing everyday missionaries into society, and to multiplication.
