Synergize 4! Pastors Conference January 21-23, 2014 in Orlando Gathers Every Major Denomination and Fellowship

By Ken Horn | December 3, 2013

Orlando, FL – December 2, 2013 – As part of the strategy to win another billion people to Christ, Billion Soul Network (Billion.tv) will host the Synergize 4! Pastors Conference January 21-23, 2014 in Orlando, Florida. Leaders from every major denomination and Christian stream will gather to synergize efforts to double the size of the Global Church during this generation. The strategic goal is to plant 5 million new churches for a Billion Soul® harvest.

The Billion Soul Network, through the synergistic leadership of more than 200 CoChairs, has been meeting biannually since 2002 and has become the largest pastors network in the world, where presidents, general superintendents and overseers of the Christian denominations and fellowships gather to share relationships, research, reports, recommendations and resources. Sixty-five nations are already represented for Synergize 4.

Dr. Leonard Sweet, leading author and futurist, states, “There is no finer venue anywhere in North America where a Church leader or a local pastor can attend and return with a greater understanding of the global Church than the Synergize 4! Pastors Conference (www.Synergize.tv).”

“We will be bringing global reports about the Church worldwide,” states Dr. James O. Davis, Billion Soul cofounder and Co-Chair/Global Networking. “This isn’t about the West going to the rest, but about the best in the world teaching the rest of us in the world what is working today.”

“We have enormous respect for the contribution to the global Church made by all leaders who are true Christ-followers, and look forward to networking with them, for the greater good of the entire Body of Christ,” said Dr. Fred Luter, President of the Southern Baptist Convention.

In the past twelve years, Billion Soul® has gathered more than 50,000 leaders in face-to-face meetings in hubs throughout the world, and now has leaders involved that represent more than 475,000 churches worldwide. This conference will mark the 12th Anniversary of the Billion Soul Network.

“The investment in a pastor’s ministry that Billion Soul can make in just three short days is almost incalculable,” Church of the Nazarene Overseer Emeritus Dr. Stan Toler said. “Whatever sacrifice it takes for a Church leader to attend, the take-away will be many times greater. We believe this conference will fill to the maximum this year with leaders eager to be about the Great Commission.”

“Foursquare International is intently working toward the completion of the Great Commission in our generation” said President Dr. Glenn Burris. “I am looking forward to hearing the plans of other Christian organizations, to see how we can greatly accelerate soul-winning and church planting during the next decade.”

“We believe Christ gave us a ‘Great Commission’ to tell the entire world about Him,” states Dr. Chip Ingram, President of Living On The Edge. “Billion Soul is helping the Church to learn methods used worldwide that empower us to shorten the time needed to finish the Great Commission. I will share The Blue Print For Biblical Discipleship.”

Dr. George O. Wood, General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God, Springfield, Missouri, states: “The Synergize 4! Pastors Conference is for pastors and leaders, whose missional ambition is to listen to, learn from and to link with the Global Church that Christ has raised up in the 21st Century. I cannot think of greater way to begin 2014, than making plans to join us for this historic conference.”

Sweet, Davis, Burris, Toler, Ingram and Wood will be among the well-known speakers at the January event. Others included are Dr. David Mohan, India General Superintendent of Assemblies of God; Dr. Dave Stone, Pastor of Southeast Christian Center, Louisville, Kentucky; Rev. Eddy Leo, Founder of Alba Ministries, Jakarta, Indonesia; Rev. Suliasi Kurulo, Founder of World Harvest Center, Suva, Fiji; and Dr. Mark Williams, General Overseer, Church of God, and Dr. Jo Anne Lyon, General Superintendent of the Wesleyans.

For exhibiting and sponsorship information, please contact Gregg Halteman, CoChair/US Partners at 417-353-8000 or Gregg@Billion.tv.

Conference Details

The conference, to be held at Faith Assembly of Orlando, starts Tuesday, January 21, at 12 noon, and concludes Thursday, January 23. at 5p.m.

The Billion Soul Network began in 2002 as a resource for meeting the Church’s need for trained and equipped pastors. Dr. James O. Davis, cofounder, along with many world leaders wanted to provide pastoral leaders around the world with the best Christian leadership training available in the most efficient and affordable way possible, in order to complete the Great Commission. The Billion Soul Network is at the forefront of the movement to train millions of pastors and Christian leaders for the billion-soul harvest, all for a fraction of the time and cost of traditional education.
