What to expect.

ChurchOS Conference Tracks are designed to advance you and your team in ChurchOS. Each track is taught by ChurchOS specialists and designed with a special focus based on your role or exposure to ChurchOS. There is something for everyone – from a team-based experience for church’s new to ChurchOS, to advanced topics and specialized tracks for trained Activators, senior leaders, and church planters. Check out the descriptions below and plan to bring a team that could benefit!

Getting Started Team Experience Track

This experiential track is four-part, sequential, facilitated experience for leaders and teams. It is uniquely built for churches who are inexperienced in ChurchOS and want to learn more. Across the four sessions, you will experience first-hand the power of Intentional Growth Planning while learning the essential concepts of ChurchOS for the first time. Each session builds upon the last, leading your team to right-sized next steps to implement the system. (Reading the Intentional Churches book is essential to this track!)

Essentials Track

This track will topically focus on essential tools of ChurchOS and how to teach and use them. It will also cover the core issues typically faced by leaders in their first one to two years of ChurchOS implementation. You must master these fundamentals if you want to create ownership and sustained Kingdom impact for generations to come. For churches in the first 2 years of their ChurchOS Journey.

Maximum Impact Track

This track will topically focus on the core issues typically faced by leaders who are two or more years along in their ChurchOS Journey. The rhythms, training, and deep implementation of ChurchOS runs up against unique challenges as your team is fully adopting and attempting to multiply the system. We will focus our time on these topics.

Senior Leadership Track

This track is built for Senior Pastors and Elder Teams. It will focus on the critical role of senior leadership in the implementation and use of ChurchOS. You will never maximize the impact of ChurchOS if you don’t align senior leadership it will focus on vision casting, healthy church governance, and more.

Evangelism Track

This track will focus on how to ignite the fires of personal evangelism in your church by mobilizing your ninety-nine to pray for, walk with, and reach their ONEs. The central purpose of ChurchOS is to build ONE-focused churches around the world who will reach millions more for Christ. Over the past decade, we have found this topic to be the central road-block to making more and better disciples and have built tools to solve the problem.
