    I’m trying to decide between the Seattle Boot Camp, the San Diego Boot Camp, and Harbor’s Multi-Site Conference. You guys aren’t making this easy!

    Drew, like Michael I’m interested in attending either the SD Boot Camp or the Seattle Boot Camp (Michael, let’s paper, rock, scissors for which one to attend). I’ve got a question though: I’m not a church planter. I’m a pastor who who has a heart for church planting and who thinks he may have church planting in his blood and in his future. Do you Acts29 dudes welcome guys like me to this conference?

    I’m probably going to do San Diego and A29 would most certianly welcome a guy like you to a boot camp!

    If you could get me one of those amazing GCA workbooks for me I’ll name my next kid after you…well maybe my next pet.

    If you could get me one of the fabled GCA workbook I’d name a city after you.

    How come this S.D. bootcamp isn’t listed on the Acts29 site? Will this bootcamp be significantly different from the Seattle bootcamp since it’s being done in conjunction with Harbor?

    Drew what time does the bootcamp end on Sat?
