Event description


a new training ground for passionate churches
with mike slaughter

Basecamp is specifically designed for pastors and key church “leaders of leaders” who are serious about Kingdom growth. You’ll leave ready to scale to the next elevation in ministry and mission!

What you’ll learn in this 5-day intensive:

  • Change the World Churches: the why’s and how to’s for maximizing a missional mindset through your church, partnerships and establishing 501c3 non-profits (plus missional marketing)

  • Spiritual Entrepreneurship: leadership development for a new generation

  • The Courageous Church: effective organizational strategies & strategic planning

  • Paid in FULL: strategies for making the money match the mission

  • Momentum for Life: self-leadership that prepares you to pull others forward

  • Perfectly Paired: healthy marriages that make ministry work

Registration is limited to a maximum of 35 participants, ensuring more up-close and personal attention, coaching and interaction.

BASECAMP also features…

-Worship at three Ginghamsburg campuses that are contextual to their communities while sharing the missional DNA:

  • Tipp City: Ginghamsburg’s largest campus; located just outside a small middle-class community north of Dayton in a rural-suburban setting

  • Fort McKinley: our church restart in a racially diverse and economically struggling urban community in North Dayton

  • The Point: in Trotwood, a largely African American community working to rebuild its community pride and optimism after decades of decline

-Tours of Ginghamsburg’s missional 501c3 outposts across two Ohio counties and a visit with Medway Church, a Ginghamsburg restart, now the 7th largest church in the West Ohio Annual Conference

-Morning workouts with a fitness trainer

-Daily breakfast and lunch plus designated dinners

-All training materials

What you’ll leave with…

  • Three-year strategic starter plan for scaling new ministry and mission heights

  • A new community of “iron sharpens iron” leaders for ongoing inspiration and accountability

  • An enhanced appreciation for the daily disciplines that transform hill climbers into elite mountaineers


Prior to BASECAMP, be sure to read the following resources:

  • Change the WORLD: Recovering the Message and Mission of Jesus
  • Renegade Gospel: The Rebel Jesus
  • Momentum for Life: Biblical Practices for Sustaining Physical Health, Personal Integrity, and Strategic Focus

…available at, and the Ginghamsburg bookstore (937.667.1069 ext. 266)

Mike is also an in-demand speaker, using his “gift of irritation” to equip ministry leaders for fully deploying the mission of Jesus into the world. Mike is the author of 17 books.
