Rick did the closing session at Catalyst and did great job. I had heard part of this message before, but it is such great stuff that I was glad to hear it again. I needed it.
Since Catalyst gave me a VIP pass I was able to hangout in the green room and make connect with Rick. We have been trying real hard to get him to speak at next year’s Exponential Conference. So when we talked I took the opportunity to remind Rick that we really wanted to add his voice and leadership to the church planting movement through the Exponential Conference. When I said that he told me he had just told a friend that he wanted to do a church planting conference. Next he gave me his contact info and said “I’ll do it.” Now, I know that “stuff” could still keep this from happening…but I’m really thinking he is going to be there along with Andy Stanley, Tim Keller and Alan Hirsch. That is a killer main session line-up.
