North Georgia UMs Inspired, Encouraged, and Equipped at Exponential 2022



Fourteen clergy and laity of the North Georgia Academy for Leadership & Innovation along with two more North Georgia pastors traveled to Orlando this month for Exponential2022, an international gathering of church innovators and planters.

"It was a week of inspiring worship, relevant training, and connections with people starting and enabling new faith communities around the world," said Rev. Richard Hunter of the Center for Congregational Excellence.

The Academy has been meeting monthly since September 2021, getting onsite inspiration from practitioners in startup churches and ministries, studying the changing models of church innovation in our current environment, discerning and clarifying God’s call. Check out the Academy Information Guide for more on what this group has experienced.
