Tribe vs. Town

Today marks the start of a 3-day conference with a twist. 

The XPastor Seminar kicks off in Dallas today and runs till Thursday of this week.

It’s a time when Executive Pastors of churches around the country meet up for 48 hours.

The difference though, is that it feels more like a tribe than a town, even though there are keynote speakers and breakout sessions.

That’s because David Fletcher is hosting his 19th edition of the event this week, after beginning the first XP Seminar back in 2005. 

But, the most amazing part is that some of the sponsors and attendees have been there right from the first edition onwards.

That’s because he keeps the event size to under 200 attendees and insists that it is a tribe, not a town.

This is an outstanding mindset in a space crowded by really big church conferences.

The best way to build a faithful following is to ensure that you seek out your dream hundred, and then build from there on.

And that’s what David Fletcher has done and continues to do beautifully, keeping it personal and connected.

Takeaway

On day one, aim to build a tribe, not a town.

Is your community a tribe or a town? Let me know here!

Community is more than just a gathering of people in a room. It is a sense of caring about one another and for something.
