win my free ticket to Catalyst West
Great event in 2 weeks with some friends over at Catalyst and the church leadership sub-culture. It’s the Catalyst launch event on the West Coast, dates are April 22-24, 2009, in Irvine, California at Mariners Church.
This will be my first time I’ve ever attended a Catalyst experience. I’m glad it’s not 12,000+ people, and more like 3,000 people. And I kinda don’t want to go alone.
So I’ve got a free ticket. Add a comment here for why I should let you have it. On April 10th after 2:00pm Pacific, I’ll pick one out of the thread to give the free ticket. This is totally subjective and not a random drawing. [contest rules: I made up these rules; my decision will be final; any comments after Fri 4/10 2pm Pacific will not qualify.]
You can still register at: www.catalystwestcoast.com or by phone at 888-334-6569. Mention Rate Code BLG and you can save an extra 10% on the ticket price.
Here’s a starter question for your comment: what makes attending a conference most valuable to you during this time of year?
Or, if you’re not the gambling type, get 10% off by using rate code BLG when you register.
Yes, this is a high-production kind of deal. Lots of big-name speakers. Lots of excellence and high-quality stuff that makes for a memorable experience. (I’d like to say that all of the speakers will be live and in person, but I can’t promise. Maybe someone from Catalyst can confirm.)
Worship by Hillsong United, Steve Fee, Aaron Keyes and Joel Auge
Speakers include: Andy Stanley, Craig Groeschel, Rick Warren, Guy Kawasaki, Ravi Zacharias, Francis Chan, Brian Houston, Erwin McManus, Perry Noble, Catherine Rohr, Jud Wilhite, and Luis Palau…
Plus, on the first day 4/22, Origins and Catalyst Labs are hosting interactive sessions with leaders like Dave Gibbons, Alan Hirsch, Blake Mycoskie (Toms Shoes), Erwin McManus, Eric Bryant, Dan Kimball, Jamie Tworkowski (To Write Love on Her Arms), Margaret Feinberg, Mark Batterson and many others.
Oh, and put your idea in for what The Origins Project should name their new community and/or network for cultivating creativity and innovation for the passion of mission and evangelism. Go to the Origins website for that.
