2011 Church Leaders, Web, Mission & Planting Conferences

These are the conferences I am scheduled to speak at this year through May, 2011 (except the first Mission conference where Goheen/Fairchild are leading). I will add the second half of the year later, where I’ve committed to speak at: Echo Media Conference, First Covenant Sacramento Mission retreat, GCM Collective in Huntsville, AL and may present at the NRB Research Symposium. Would love to connect with you if you are going to any of these and stay tuned as a few more trips may be added.

CLA Conference April 25-28th in Dallas, TX. Join us in April to the Ministry Internet & Technology Summit (MITS) during the 2011 Christian Leadership National Conference. MonkDev hosts this summit at the CLA National Conference because in our experience, it is great for equipping ministry leaders like you in the range of skills and knowledge needed to navigate the challenges of leading ministry in the future. With more than 120 workshops in 14 tracks, 25 full-day seminars and cutting-edge summits this is truly a one-of-a-kind educational opportunity. Thousands of ministry leaders from across America will be there, and I’m hoping you’ll consider joining us too.

The Exponential Conference and the Verge Conference are joining forces to host an historic, international event in April 2011. Join thousands of other church planting leaders for a time of inspiration, encouragement, equipping and challenging. Our theme is “Missional Communities: Discovering Old Truths in New Paradigms.” Regardless of your current approach (attractional, incarnational, mega, multi, micro, etc), you will be challenged to apply old truths and principles in fresh ways to reach those far from God.

Cultivate Conference May 4-5, 2011 at First Christian Church in Huntington Beach, CA. Cultivate is about bringing you together with the skilled, the experienced, and the insightful, and together you will drive the content. Together you will discover breakthrough insights. Cultivate is about organized conversations, and each conversation will be designed to nurture collaboration without confining the experience to a box. Expect to be stretched. Expect to be challenged. Expect to cultivate a new way of thinking. If you are creative, strategic, and responsible for influencing how your organization communicates, there is a chair waiting for you.
