Today I leave for Washington DC. I’ll be leading a Church 2.0 Local Forum there and can’t wait to connect with old friends and meet new ones. I moved from that area to Dallas, so it will be fun to return to my former home. If you are in the DC area or know someone that is, you/they can register HERE.
Some have asked what goes on at these gatherings (this will be the 12th one I’ve led). The Church 2.0 Local Forum is a true unconference and is very informal/casual, but I’ll give you a little overview of what the day will look like. We’ll go from 10am to 2:30pm.
- First hour: We’ll discuss new media/technology – specifically Twitter and Facebook and how they can be used for ministry purposes. I’ll share 3 key realities of these new technologies.
- Second hour: We’ll dive into a huge discussion on the topic of innovation. I’ll share 4 ways that innovation is born and what God is teaching me about innovation.
- We’ll then break for lunch and encourage people to go eat somewhere close by with someone they don’t know and get to know them over lunch.
- The post-lunch part we’ll discuss social justice/what breaks my heart and the heart of God – as well as have time for Q & A.
