Goto Exponential Conference 2009 for Free

Today is that big deadline day for filing income taxes in the United States. Not the most exciting day, unless you’re getting a refund.

Here’s something much more exciting: win 2 free tickets to Exponential Conference 2009: Art of Movements (aka 2009 National New Church Conference). Love the interviews they’ve posted in their podcast [rss or iTunes], with leaders like Tim Keller, Erwin McManus, Dave Ferguson, Perry Noble, and Francis Chan.

2009 National New Church Conference

Yes, the Exponential Conference starts next week in Orlando, April 20-23. So, if you are able to attend on short notice, you can win a pair of tickets. Great for a church planter and a spouse. Great for a 2 team members who are in those early years of a church startup. (And this contest will be more objective than the previous contest.)

To enter this contest for 2 Exponential tickets, add a comment with a number between 1 and 100 (inclusive). Comments with a number must be entered before April 16th 8:00am Pacific / 11:00am Eastern. [update] We have a winner! Congratulations to Sondra Rush!

How the winner will be selected: A list of random numbers has already been generated, and permanently sealed in a digital Google Docs that Todd Rhoades will supervise for accountability. Based on the total number of comments here, the spreadsheet has a corresponding pre-generated random number in the aforementioned sealed spreadsheet. That corresponding number will be used as the winning number. The tickets will go to the person who entered the number closest to the winning number without going over. Confused? Add a comment. [Note: If 2 or more entered the same number, the older timestamp will win.]

You know what to do. Add a comment. Retweet. Forward.

    Thanks for all the numbers, comments, and guesses. The rest of us will have to experience Exponential vicariously via her blog AND via the Live video interviews at with emcee Scott Hodge!

  51. NOC says:

    The NOC plans on visiting this blog today – at the risk of changing the subject! We hope that a dialogue will not distract from those who are attending Exponential – an essential learning experience for church planters…
