What is the Multiply Gathering?
The Multiply Gathering is a time when people from all over the world come together to worship, learn about disciple-making, and are challenged to take the next step in their current disciple-making relationships—whether that’s to start a disciple-making relationship for the first time, to continue in a relationship that’s been ongoing for years, or to seek out another person to disciple.
How can I participate in the Multiply Gathering?
The Multiply Gathering will be held at a local church and broadcast worldwide via a free live stream. Due to limited seating, tickets will not be made available to the general public for the “physical” Gathering. However, we are inviting individuals, small groups, and churches to participate by hosting their own Multiply Gathering and showing the live stream in their home or church.
What is a live stream?
A live stream is a live video broadcast of an event transmitted across the internet.
When will the next Multiply Gathering be held?
The live stream will begin on Friday, November 8, 2013 at 6:00 pm CST (4:00 PST, 5:00 MST, 7:00 EST), and will last approximately three hours. If that time is not convenient for your group, you may delay the start of the live stream using the *DVR* function of the video player.
How do I register for the Multiply Gathering?

Do I need to download or purchase the Multiply Material before the Gathering?
No. You do not need to download or purchase the Multiply Material to participate in the Gathering. Some groups have used the Gathering as a kick-off to the Multiply Material or a supplement while going through the Material as a church or small group.
Will there be a printed program or guide for the Gathering?
Yes. You will receive a PDF of a short program or note-taking guide that can be printed and distributed to participants 1-2 weeks before the Gathering.
We’re hosting the Multiply Gathering at our church. Can we use the videos that are on this site to promote? Are there other promotional items we can use?
Yes. You are encouraged to download and share the videos we have posted on the site. Additional promotional materials will be available in several weeks.
When will I get a link to the live stream?
All registered participants will receive a link to the live stream approximately one week before the Gathering.
I was hoping to share the Multiply Gathering with my small group or church before November. Do you have any other resources that I can use in the meantime?
Yes! You can watch the teaching sessions from the Multiply Gathering last fall whenever it’s convenient for you. Go to MultiplyMovement.com and click the orange “Download the Video” button. Once you provide the information requested, you’ll be able to stream the video from the website or download a copy to your computer.
I am unable to watch the live stream on November 8th. Will it be available for my group to watch at a later time?
Yes. Your group has two options for watching the live stream at a later date. The link to the live stream will be active for 30 days after the Gathering (through Sunday, December 8). You may come back to the site, log on, and watch. Once the link is no longer active, a video for the teaching time will be posted online at MultiplyMovement.com.
I would like to be notified as soon as more information is available about the next Multiply Gathering.
