My title at CBC recently changed again and definitely my favorite yet: Innovation Pastor.  Just days after making this change I was contacted by my friends at Leadership Network to participate in their upcoming online conference: Church Innovate.

Here is a description of the event:

The church is constant changing.  Leadership Network works with hundreds of churches all over the United States and Canada.  In the course of that work, we've identified three major areas of ministry that are changing rapidly... three main areas of church innovation that are re-shaping the church as we know it... before our very eyes.

On Tuesday, May 14, you'll hear from the innovators that are at the front edge of these ministry trends.  Over the course of three hours, you'll hear what's working, and what these individual leaders and ministries are doing to develop new ways of reaching their communities and churches with the message of Jesus.

We'll concentrate our time together on three main church innovations and what we're learning: generocity, multisite ministry, and leadership development.

Scheduled speakers include Mark Batterson, Booby Gruenwald, Toby Slough, Gunnar Johnson, Craig Groeschel, Larry Osborne, Gary Vet, Jeff Jones, and many others!

We invite you to join us for FREE!  All you need to do is RSVP!

I'm extremely excited and honored to join these incredible innovators and with Leadership Network for this online event.  I hope you will set aside 3 hours in your day on Tuesday, May 14th for this FREE and exciting event.

I just found out that the Orange Conference will be livestreaming the main sessions this year for FREE!!!  If you're not already familiar with the Orange Conference that begins tonight, you need to get familiar quickly.  You can go to www.theorangeconference.com and find out all about it.  They have an incredible lineup of speakers including Doug Fields, Mark Batterson, Donald Miller, Reggie Joiner, Perry Noble, and Rev Run!  That's right, the Rev Run from Run's house!  Also, two of my friends: Rick Smith (Thursday 1:10pm) and Scott Austin (Friday at 11:00am) will be speaking at the conference on the main stage.  I love that so many of these conferences are now broadcasting live for everyone to see and experience!  I hope you will join me in watching some or all of this conference live over the next couple of days.
