July 12–13

BLDRS Conference exists to equip pastors and ministry leaders with the tools to multiply their churches. Transform your 200 into 2000. By attending the conference, you’ll get hands on training and practical skills from church planters themselves. You’ll come out with more knowledge to build a world-class ministry that will outlast you. Plus, you’ll connect with other church planters and create long-lasting friendships vital to remaining healthy. The BLDRS conference is an invitation to learn from people who’ve experience the pain of building.

General Questions

Union Church is a transformative ministry with multiple locations in Maryland and with a 5th location launching in North Carolina in January 2023. With God’s favor and an incredible team, the church has increased by thousands over the years. But like any church, it’s been a journey. Stephen Chandler, senior pastor, knows exactly what it feels like to launch with a hope and a dream and to be quickly hit with painstaking realities of building a thriving church. 

Met with obstacle after obstacle and with stagnant growth ( we were 400 people for 4 years ), Stephen knew that there was another level of success that could be unlocked… in came his secret sauce; systems and people development. If there is anyone that knows how to systematically develop people and multiply ministries, it’s Stephen Chandler.

The Builders Conference is designed to train and equip pastors and church leaders. Any member of your church staff or team is welcome to attend. This is an in-person only event.

While families are important to us, this is an adults-only conference. Because we are trying to create a distraction-free environment for all attendees, we do not allow children of any age to attend the conference, and we are unable to make exceptions. 

Master Builder Sessions are focused workshops in between main stage sessions designed to equip and resource you in specific areas such as operations, experience, ministries, and more.
