Available Conferences

The following conferences are available:

  • You Can Double Your Class in Two Years or Less

    This is our most popular conference. It teaches the potential of doubling--a group of 10 that doubles every 18 months will reach 1000 people for God in ten years. And, it teaches the possibility of doubling through a hospitality-based approach. Summary: you can double your class every two years or less by inviting every member and every prospect to every fellowship every month.

  • Disciplemaking Teachers

    Whereas Double Your Class emphasizes outreach and evangelism, Disciplemaking Teachers teaches teachers to make disciples, not merely present information. The first half of the seminar explores a nine-point outline of what a disciple is. The second half discusses how to make that disciple.

  • 10 Marks of I.N.C.R.E.D.I.B.L.E. Teachers.

    "Incredible teacher inspire hearts; they don't just fill heads." That is point #1 of this popular seminar on the craft of teaching. It explores how to use technology to find material that moves hearts. One point of the ten deals with the dream of doubling groups.

  • Good Questions Have Groups Talking

    This seminar discusses why the discussion method is so effective in making disciples. We are changed more by what we say than what we hear. We explore twelve kinds of question I use every week in writing Good Questions that Have Groups Talking. This content is available in a free 160-page downloadable e-book

  • One Magnificent Obsession

    This seminar is more motivational and sermonic. It focuses on ten reasons WHY we would give ourselves to the vision of growing groups. The problem in many cases is not that we don't know how to double a class in two years or less, it is that we are not motivated to do so. This conferences addresses this motivational issue.

  • Make Your Group Grow

    This is my newest seminar. It is based on a research project where I surveyed 1000 teachers to discover what contributes to the growth of a group. This research-based seminar reinforces much of the theories of Double Your Class with hard data. There were also a few surprises where the research disproved a few things I used to say in the Double Your Class Seminar.
