"Get It" Conference
"Get It" Church Growth Conference
October 3-5 | 2012
The "get it" factor.
It's what every one of us, as pastors and church leaders, desperately want and need in order to lead people to Jesus and grow churches in this multi-generational, technologically-driven and ever-changing culture.
That's what the "Get It" Church Growth Conference is all about.
Pastors Jeff and Beth Jones, along with several special guests and the Valley Family Church staff, look forward to helping every attendee "get" everything they need for their next season of ministry - in order to reach more people with the life-transforming power of the gospel and take their church to the next level.

Why We Must "Get It"
People are lost. They don't know Jesus. They think church is irrelevant.
The culture around us is changing at a rapid rate of speed. The church-at-large is in the midst of a "Copernican-like shift" - massive changes are taking place around the world through globalization, technology and the blending of the two largest generations ever - the millennials and the baby boomers – and it's imperative that we, as today's church leaders and pastors, "get it" to effectively connect with the people we are called to reach.
Today, the Church has an opportunity to introduce more people to Jesus, to influence more communities and to impact eternity in unprecedented ways. When we, as church leaders "get it" by reinvigorating our vision, shaping our church culture, streamlining our systems and embracing Spirit-inspired, creative, strategic ways of communicating the gospel message, hundreds and thousands of lives can be radically changed.

"Three words come to mind as I think about the value of the upcoming 'Get It' Church Growth and Leadership Conference: Practical. Strategic. Relevant. One team comes to mind that should participate: Yours!"
-John Hull | President/CEO | EQUIP Leadership, John C. Maxwell, Founder
"After being a pastor for 31 years, I was asked what I'd do differently if I could start over. I responded by saying, 'I would sit under Jeff and Beth Jones and, with God's help, reproduce what they are doing at Valley Family Church in Kalamazoo.' The Get It Conference is the perfect venue for education, motivation, inspiration and impartation."
-Bishop Dave Williams | Mount Hope Church, Lansing, MI
"Pastors Jeff and Beth are gifted in sharing how to exist with purpose. They've 'got it' and are willing to help others 'get it.' Sharing how to link practical applications to spiritual favor results in moving others into tremendous Kingdom effectiveness. Don't miss this opportunity."
-Paul C. Paino, M. Div., Th. D., Ph. D. | Church Relations | International Fellowship of Christians and Jews
"The 'Get It' conference comes from a heart that just doesn't want to communicate information, they want to see real transformation. There are plenty of conferences that give information, but this one gives unparalleled access to see and experience ministry in a new and fresh way that will transform the way you do church. If you only take your staff to one conference in 2012, 'Get It' is the one for your team!"
-Larry Brey | Campus Pastor | Elevation Church | Charlotte, NC
"In my travels, I regularly encounter pastors who are looking to get that 'edge' and establish greater momentum for their churches. I am delighted to recommend the "Get It" conference hosted by Pastors Beth and Jeff Jones. I've witnessed first-hand on different occasions the incredible traction and effectiveness that has been generated by their innovative and creative approaches to ministry, and I have seen them do this without compromising content in any way. As a matter of fact, the synergy established through teamwork and creative processes has empowered their church to be dynamically effective in getting the life-changing power of the gospel to countless people in their community. If you want to get your vision for ministry stretched and expanded, and if you want to find fresh ways of ministering to your community, this conference is a must."
-Tony Cooke | Tony Cooke Ministries, Broken Arrow, OK
"When it comes to creative, effective ministry Valley Family Church not only 'gets it' they know how to help others 'get it,' too. This is one conference where you will learn, in an amazing level of detail, how to develop practical ministry systems that also fully embrace the presence and leadership of the Holy Spirit."
-Kregg Hood, Ed. D. | Senior Vice President | AG Financial
"The message we carry is timeless but the methods are not. Pastors Jeff and Beth Jones understand this and are doing it with excellence. Don't miss this opportunity to attend the 'Get It' Conference. It will change the way you do church!"
-Kevin and Susan Fletcher | Directors | Rhema Bible Training Center, UK & Ireland
"In life there are things you have to see and experience to get it! Valley Family Church is reaching this next generation in some of the most impacting ways we have ever seen. It's full of faith and power but mixed in a 'culture' that appeals to this next generation."
