Conclave Sessions – Gathering Church Communicators

Earlier this year, we launched the Conclave Sessions in Dallas. It was such a success that we have begun to schedule more of these. Our next Roundtable will be this Fall 2011 (October 26th & 27th) in the Windy City of Chicago. We’re pleased to announce that Kem Meyer of Granger and Josh Burns of Park will be joining us as well as several others. The discussions we will tackle will be powerful and provoking. If you’d like to be considered for the Chicago Roundtable, please apply here. We’ll review all submissions and notify you closer to the event if you’ve been selected.

Why A ‘Roundtable’?
We started this project to gather thought leaders, practitioners and church comm experts to leverage best practices and talk through challenges. Each of our Roundtables are filled with individuals from a wide variety of churches, many are growing and influential churches who are able to implement communication strategies. “As iron sharpens iron,” Proverbs says, “so one person sharpens another.” This is an opportunity to share with and learn from your peers in deep and substantial ways.

Dinner at the Nightwood Restaurant
A Disruptive Learning Event from a renowned author
Church Communication Key Findings and Best Practices report from the content generated at the Roundtable
Networking opportunities with some of the brightest minds in the church comm space

GCM Conference Collective Experience

Are you attending the 2011 GCM Conference? If so, join us for the pre-conference Collective Experience:

Join other Missional Leaders from across the country to serve as a form of “advisory board” while at the conference. In this pre-conference you will experience peer-learning; what others are doing, what is working, what they are learning and how they have dealt with similar challenges you currently face.

What happens at the conference? Key to the Collectives success is the relationship between the people. At the conference you will attend a pre-conference reception to meet, greet, eat and begin to engage with a group of missional leaders. While you go through the conference we will encourage time for your Collective to connect and process learnings together.

What happens after the conference? Each Collective will be given a private group within the GCM Collective Community website for you to dig deeper with your peers and share best practices, successes and challenges going forward together. During the post-conference reception we will share suggestions and our recommendations, but ultimately you determine how you would like to interact after the conference.

The goal is for you to be able to share experiences, resources and support to assist you in the ongoing mission God has called you to in your city.
