the first CMN Conference

March 5-7, 2018

Pastors, leaders, and church planters from all over the country are coming together to hear from incredible speakers, develop their ministry skills, and connect with like-minded leaders at the Church Multiplication Network Conference.

Since CMN began in 2008, more than 3,400 churches have been planted and 7,500 leaders have been trained – but this is just the beginning. We are believing God will use this movement to see a healthy church in every community in the United States. At the CMN Conference, you’ll hear from CMN Lead Team members, church planters, and other ministry leaders passionate about multiplying the church. We believe this moment matters. You don’t want to miss this historic gathering in Dallas, TX!
