Multiply Conference 2019


May 14 & 15, 2019
Halifax, Nova Scotia
Dalhousie University

Pre-Conference on May 13, 2019



Each year at the Multiply Conference, we gather leaders to be inspired, equipped, and encouraged under the teaching of practitioners who are being used by God to bring renewal and missional reproduction to their churches. We look forward to what God is going to do among us during these days together and to the fruit that will follow in local churches as a result.

Reclaim the Center 

Every generation is subject to spiritual and theological “drift.” Christ-centered lives and ministries are non-negotiable as we pray into national awakening. Methods and models will change with the times and the culture, but the Gospel of Jesus remains the unshifting message of hope for every generation.

Embrace the Source

“Unless the LORD builds the house, they labor in vain.” Without the Holy Spirit’s empowering and enabling, all our human efforts will be for naught and so we cry out for the presence and power of the Holy Spirit to move locally, nationally, and globally.

Advance the Kingdom

Jesus promised that the gates of hell would not stand against the advance of His Kingdom. We confidently step into the victory of Jesus’ finished work, declaring Him as King, calling lost people to salvation, and those “found” to lives of radical discipleship and service. Jesus' mission is our mission!

Come expectantly! Come prayerfully!




Breakout Topics

At the time of registration, you will need to choose one of the following seven Breakout Topics, each containing three sessions.

Click on the Breakout Topics below for more details.

# 1    Am I a Church Planter?

A Church Planting Base Camp

Like climbing a mountain peak, church planting requires much preparation and skill. The vistas from the peak are not reached without strict training, Spirit-dependency, and much prayer. Many hazards line the path up the mountain.

As you consider the call God may be placing on your life – and specifically the potential of planting a church – wisdom would advise that you gain insight from those who have gone before.

In this breakout topic, you will hear from church planters and church planting coaches about the call, the preparation, the partnerships and the power that is needed before you attempt to climb the hill called “church planting.”

Each breakout topic includes three sessions

# 2    Becoming a Church Planting Church

Recent studies indicate that 90% of North American Churches will never daughter a church. If we are to see the re-evangelization of Canada, we need an army of established churches to engage the vision, and embrace the challenges of “giving birth.” In this breakout track you will learn from practitioners who are leading church-planting-churches. They will share key learnings, obstacles to overcome, and the joy of sending leaders to start new congregations.

# 3    Leading Your Church towards Intentional Disciple Making

From Attractional To Missional

The Austin Stone was planted in December of 2002, but as a rapidly growing church, has a crisis of conscience in 2006. We were “successful” because we had attracted numbers, but many of the disciples who were gathering weren't living on mission in their everyday lives. Beginning then, and continuing to today, we have been on a journey of leading our church to gather for the worship of Jesus AND live in intentional, missional communities to show and share the love of Jesus throughout the city of Austin. These sessions will outline the culture, strategy, and metrics along the way that have been developed and proven helpful.

# 4    The Multi-Faceted Faces of Multi-Site Ministry

Multi-site, satellite, campuses, video venues, teaching teams, re-plants, and networks of stand-alone churches are just some of the many “faces” of the multi-site church world. If you are considering moving toward a multi-site model of ministry, this breakout track will inspire and equip. Seasoned leaders will share some of the latest trends as well as their key learnings from their particular model.

# 5    Kingdom, Disciple, Society & Church

Reframing the Metrix for Kingdom Impact

The Kingdom of God is the reign of God. It is Jesus Christ, the Lord over all things, in action. Wherever the will of God is being done, that’s where the Kingdom is being manifested. In a very real sense, Jesus is the Kingdom in person. Focusing on the Kingdom moves us from conversion to transformation, and from segmentation to integration. This is the framework and the focus for everything we do.

# 6    Transformational Leadership - Tuning the Leader's Heart to the Gospel

Many have said that “everything rises and falls on leadership.” But in Jesus’ up-side-down kingdom, what kind of leader does it take to grow a sustaining ministry, disciple deeply, plant churches and/or start movements. In this series of workshops, we will press into the deep work of the Holy Spirit in the life of the leader, a rich understanding of grace, and the call on every Christian leader to “come and die.”

Workshop - “Amazing Grace” - it may be the most misunderstood and misrepresented of evangelical doctrines. Stepping in the the freedom of grace-filled ministry will radically alter everything! Terry Virgo will be leading this session.

Workshop - Resiliency for the long-haul. Norm Funk has led faithfully at Westside Church in downtown Vancouver for over a dozen years. In this ministry (and previous ministries) he has faced the challenges of keeping one’s heart soft before Jesus and the radical dependence that is needed for long-haul ministry.

# 7    Worship – Gospel Infused Gatherings that Transform

No one would argue with the premise that gospel-centred churches must be driven along by gospel-centred proclamation, however, far too many leaders over-look the necessity and the power of gospel-centred liturgy that lifts-up, exalts, and magnifies the gospel message in every aspect of the gathering of God’s people. Far more than being the “warm-up” for the “real meal” of preaching, a gospel infused liturgy declares the glories of the gospel in word and in song. Great “worship” is far more than great music. Oh how we need to encounter the living God every time we gather as His people under the banner of the cross!

Multiply delivers. The passion is contagious. The content is transformational. The speakers are anointed. Any leader with a heartbeat for Kingdom multiplication will feel the heat of this focused value long after the conference has ended.

This conference continues to bring points of impact for my team that solidify why we do what we do. The Multiply Conference champions gospel culture through the content from an array of speakers who bring into focus a diversity of methods for presenting the truth of Jesus without compromise. I am thankful for the vision that C2C Network has put into action by consistently blessing the church with content rich sessions, authentic worship and the opportunity to connect with leaders who are on mission to see Jesus glorified.
— Krista Penner, Leadership Development, Fellowship Pacific

I loved attending the Multiply Conference in 2017. I went looking for the tips and tricks to plant churches, but I came a way with a greater passion for Jesus and a call to be the kind of leader that He can use to plant more churches.
— AJ Plaizier, Pastor, Yarmouth Wesleyan Church
