It’s conference season! I’ll be speaking at four very cool events this year. Hope to see you there: 

C3 Conference 

Thursday, March 6 – Saturday, March 8
St. George's Episcopal Church,  Nashville, TN 

 

“C3 is an event and an ongoing resource that teaches Christians of all denominations and the unchurched how to create courageous conversations that do not ruin relationships. We hope to reclaim our calling to be ministers of reconciliation (II Corinthians 5:18) within the Christian community and beyond it.” 

Other speakers include Glennon Melton, Melvin Bray, William P. Young, and Phil Keaggy.  I’ll be speaking on the hot topic of millennials and the church.

Change the World Conference

Thursday, April 3 – Friday, April 4
Ginghamsburg Church, Tipp City, OH

“A conference for all church leaders who are ready to stop playing church and start being the Church.” 

Other speakers include Diana Butler-Bass, Rev. Adam Hamilton, and Mike Slaughter.

Calvin College Festival of Faith and Writing 

Thursday, April 10, 2014 - Saturday, April 12, 2014
Calvin College, Grand Rapids, MI

“The Festival of Faith and Writing at Calvin College is a biennial conference that brings together writers, editors, publishers, musicians, artists, and readers for three days of discussing and celebrating insightful writing that explores, in some significant way, issues of faith.” 

Other speakers this year include Anne Lamott, James McBride, Gene Luen Yang, Luci Shaw, Miroslav Volf, and dozens more. I’m honored to be giving the closing plenary address on Saturday afternoon. This is really one of my favorite conferences to attend; I hope you can make it!

Q Nashville 

Wednesday, April 23 – Friday, April 25
War Memorial Auditorium, Nashville, TN

“Join 1,000 remarkable leaders from all channels of culture as we gather in Nashville to consider how to advance the common good in a pluralistic society. Our method of learning is simple: exposure, conversation and collaboration. Over the course of three days, speakers will present their big idea in concise 18, 9, or 3-minute formats.” 

Other speakers include Christine Caine, Shauna Niequist, Russell Moore, Nicole Baker Fulgham, Andy Crouch, and many more. I’ll be speaking on millennials and the church…I think.
