What Leaders are Saying

Ryan Martinez, Christ Place Church

“I LOVE how intimate the setting was. This could have easily been a conference that HUNDREDS of ministry leaders could attend at one time, but you intentionally keep it smaller and more intimate. This is so very valuable. This workshop is invaluable to anyone trying to establish and grow a small group ministry.”

What Leaders are Saying

Tyler Drewitz, Ridgeline Church

“Access to hearing straight from Larry and his overall very vulnerable approach. North Coast in general and Larry in particular does a great job of presenting the philosophy behind the methods to empower leaders to effectively lead their churches. So many conferences have a 'do it like us if you want to be awesome' attitude, but your approach truly embraces 'planting the church that you want to go to ' by helping us understand the why without forcing the what down our throats. Thank you!”

Brian Pursley, Lakeside Community Church

“The access to Larry who has so much success, wisdom, and insight without the ego that normally accompanies those things.
