For the past few years I have attended and blogged from the Orange Conference in Atlanta. I will still be traveling to Atlanta for a conference next year, but I will not be at the Orange Conference, at least not entirely. This year the people that put on the Orange Conference are putting on a new conference just for senior church leaders, the ReThink Leadership Conference. Since I am now kinda the senior pastor of Journey Church I’ve decided to go there instead. Ok, technically Journey Church is not really a thing yet, but it’s coming on fast and I am the pastor. Anyways, I wanted to give a brief heads up of what to expect from me next week.
Tuesday: It’s travel day. I’ll be making the approx. 7 hour trek from home to ATL. I’ll be picking up my good friend David Maddron at the Airport. From there the fun begins. Later that night I will be gathering at a special event for RT16 attendees. I’ll be hanging with people like Andy Stanley, Carey Nieuwhoff and others.
Wednesday – Friday: These days it is totally on. Full on conference mode. Drinking from a firehose of inspiration and information. This is one of my favorite things to do and I can’t wait.
Social Media: I will be blowing up social media with info from these sessions. Especially Twitter. Follow me @kidminmatt to keep up with all the highlights and some of the fun as well. Stay up with all the social media stuff from RT16 with #RT16. Follow #OC16 to keep with everything from the Orange Conference as well.
Cross overs: RT16 shares some of the main sessions with the Orange Conference. So, you’ll see some of the content from these sessions reflected in my tweets and bog posts as well.
Daily summary: Each day I will try to post a brief summary of all the great stuff that I learn and experience during that day.
In case I haven’t mentioned it, I am super excited. I’m looking forward to catching up with old friends and meeting new ones. I’m looking forward to being inundated with more information than I can ever process in a week. I’m looking forward to the sort of inspiration that can only come from a gathering of God’s people. I’m looking forward to worshipping with 7000 of my closest friends. I’m looking forward to the chance to meet and learn under some of the greatest minds in church leadership. Heck, I’m even looking forward tot he long drive that get’s me there.
Check back next week to catch all that happens, here and in social media.Matt Norman
