2022 SpireConference Precon

1k/1Day & SpireXP

September 26, 2002 – 9:00 AM – 4:30 PM

1K/1DAY exchange event

FALL is screaming toward us and with it an incredible ministry moment for the churches we lead. There’s no better way to gear up for it than the 1K/1Day Exchange for Lead Pastors at Spire. (Churches with average weekly attendance exceeding 1,000.)

1K/1Day has an incredible day planned! You will come away with fresh ideas, personal inspiration for your calling, encouragement for your next leadership moves, best practices for continuing to build forward out of pandemic impact, and personal friendships and connections that last long after our one day is over. 

We will talk about what’s changed and needs to change with preaching in a skeptical age in a post-covid reality, developing a healthy elder team and what’s most important about keeping it that way, what’s working to reach wanderers, explorers and haters – and so much more! 

Ashley Wooldridge, Tommy Politz and a few others will be sharing, along with plenty of time for table talk with each other to talk shop and fill our buckets with practical insights to take home. 

Ben Cachiaras’s wife, Karla, has a great day planned for wives. We strongly encourage you to bring your wife if at all possible. Wives will meet at 11:30, enjoy lunch, and finish by 1:30 PM.

We begin at 9:00 AM, share lunch and will be done by 4:30.


Join us for a powerful one-day roundtable event specifically designed for executive pastors and lead associate ministers. It is exclusively built to tackle the emergent issues facing the church right now. The experience is designed and led by Bart Rendel and Doug Parks from Intentional Churches. We will crowd-source the agenda from the front-lines of your ministry, and problem-solve together. You will not only make great friends, you will walk away inspired and equipped to take action.

Karla Cachiaras’s (wife of Ben Chachiaras from Mountain Christian Church), has a great day planned for XP and Leader Pastor’s wives. We strongly encourage you to bring your wife if at all possible. Wives will meet at 11:30 with the 1K 1Day Leader’s wives, enjoy lunch, and finish by 1:30.

Registration for the day is $100 and if your wife joins you, her fee is FREE!
