I’m getting back into the groove after spending a couple days in Atlanta at the ChurchPlanters.com Conference. I had a great time and Shawn, David, Casey, Chad and rest of the team at Mountain Lake Church did a phenomenal job hosting the event! Some of the highlights for me:
- Traveling there with Troy McMahon and getting to stop at Chik-fil-A twice. Good stuff!
- Getting to hangout Todd Wilson who doing more behind the scenes to catalyze a movement of reproducing churches than anyone I know.
- Also getting to spend some time with Mark Nelson who just planted Crossings, a NewThing church in Knoxville, Tennessee. Mark is a very thoughtful leader and they are off to a great start!
- It was good to hear Shawn Lovejoy and Ed Stetzer’s main session – great stuff. I missed the other two sessions doing a podcast and had to leave a little early.
- I got to connect with Gary Lamb and do a podcast with him and Ed Stetzer for National New Church Conference website. Ed knows more about church planting than anyone I know and Gary is one of those guys who is getting it done.
- I also finally got to put a face with some people I know only through blogging – Perry Noble and Tony Morgan.
