ORLANDO, Fla. –– As part of the strategy to win another billion people to Christ, Billion Soul Network (www.Billion.tv) will host the Synergize 2016 Pastors & Leaders Conference (www.Synergize.tv) January 19-21, 2016 in Orlando, Florida. World class leaders from every major denomination and Christian stream will gather to synergize efforts to double the size of the global Church during this generation. The strategic goal is to plant 5 million new churches for a Billion Soul® harvest.
The Billion Soul Network, through the synergistic leadership of more than 225 CoChairs, has been meeting biannually since 2002 and has become the largest pastors network in the world, where presidents, general superintendents and overseers of the Christian denominations and fellowships gather to share relationships, research, reports, recommendations and resources. Sixty-five nations are already represented for Synergize 2016.
Dr. Leonard Sweet, leading author and futurist, states, “There is no finer venue anywhere in North America where a Church leader or a local pastor can attend and return with a greater understanding of the global Church than the Synergize 2016 Pastors Conference (www.Synergize.tv).”
“We will be bringing global reports about the Church worldwide,” states Dr. James O. Davis, Billion Soul cofounder. “This isn’t about the West going to the rest, but about the best in the world teaching the rest of us in the world what is working today.”
“We have enormous respect for the contribution to the global Church made by all leaders who are true Christ-followers, and look forward to networking with them, for the greater good of the entire Body of Christ,” said Dr. Timothy Hill, Church of God World Missions Director, in Cleveland, Tennessee.
In the past fourteen years, Billion Soul® has gathered more than 60,000 leaders in face-to-face meetings in hubs throughout the world, and now has leaders involved that represent more than 475,000 churches worldwide. This conference will mark the 14th Anniversary of the Billion Soul Network.
“The investment in a pastor’s ministry that Billion Soul can make in just three short days is almost incalculable,” Rev. Samuel Rodriquez, President of National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference said. “Whatever sacrifice it takes for a Church leader to attend, the take-away will be many times greater. We believe this conference will fill to the maximum this year with leaders eager to be about the Great Commission.”
“Foursquare International is intently working toward the completion of the Great Commission in our generation” said President Dr. Glenn Burris. “I am looking forward to hearing the plans of other Christian organizations, to see how we can greatly accelerate soul-winning and church planting during the next decade.”
“We believe Christ gave us a ‘Great Commission’ to tell the entire world about Him,” states Dr. James Merritt, Founder of Cross Point Church, Duluth, Georgia, and President Emeritus of the Southern Baptist Convention. “Billion Soul is helping the Church to learn methods used worldwide that empower us to shorten the time needed to finish the Great Commission”
Dr. Leon Fontaine, Senior Pastor of Springs Church, Winnipeg, Canada and President of The Miracle Channel said, “The Synergize 2016 Pastors & Leaders Conference is for pastors and leaders, whose missional ambition is to listen to, learn from and to link with the Global Church that Christ has raised up in the 21st Century. I cannot think of greater way to begin 2016, than making plans to join us for this historic conference.”
Sweet, Davis, Burris, Hill, Rodriquez and Fontaine will be among the well-known speakers at the January event. Others included are David Mohan, India General Superintendent of Assemblies of God; Wilfred de Jesus, Pastor of New Life Church, Chicago, Illinois; Eddy Leo, Founder of Alba Ministries, Jakarta, Indonesia; Ravi Zacharias, Founder of Ravi Zacharias Ministries International, Atlanta, Georgia; Charles Blake, Presiding Bishop of Church of God in Christ, Los Angeles, California; Efraim Tendero, General Secretary of World Evangelical Alliance, Manila, Philippines and John Bevere, Founder of Messenger International, Colorado Springs, Colorado.

The Billion Soul Network began in 2002 as a resource for meeting the Church’s need for trained and equipped pastors. Dr. James O. Davis, cofounder, along with many world leaders wanted to provide pastoral leaders around the world with the best Christian leadership training available in the most efficient and affordable way possible, in order to complete the Great Commission. The Billion Soul Network is at the forefront of the movement to train millions of pastors and Christian leaders for the billion-soul harvest, all for a fraction of the time and cost of traditional education.
