What conferences are att he very top of your list for 2007? What ones did you attend in '06? Were they good, bad or ugly?
I have attended Fellowship Church's "Creative Church Conference" twice, and it has blown me away...twice! Last year the Director's of SFD went together. This year I will be there with the Adult Ministries Cabinet. (Robin Ritchie, Jay Guptill, Joel Heron and Dawn Marie Colaw). If you are planning to attend, let us know as we would like to host a dinner for all Wesleyan's at the event. www.creativepastors.com (it's in late February, you can maximize your travel costs by visiting many mega churches in the Dallas-Fort Worth area)
One that I came across yesterday while doing some research for one of our Young Adult Pastors: www.leadnow07.com In the "Catalyst" genre, this one looks like a high-octane, high energy, emergent deal for the 40 and under crowd or 40+ wannabes.
