Tim Keller conferences
Dwell Conference, an urban church planting conference, is slated for April 29-30, 2008, in the city of cities, New York City. This’ll be a premier training event for urban church planters with attendance limited to 350. So this’ll be a cozy time with Tim Keller AND Mark Driscoll, along with Ed Stetzer, CJ Mahaney, and Darrin Patrick. Not often do you get to see both Mark Driscoll and Tim Keller up close; the smaller attendance size will give this a more personal feel than being one in a thousand like it’d be at their home churches.
Spread the word! I’ll be there at the Dwell Conference; hope to see you there. (I’ll be extending my stay in The City to take in more of the foods, sights and sounds.) I’m still waiting for my pre-ordered copy of Keller’s new book, The Reason for God. Bumble already got his, so I got to touch one yesterday.
For a bigger venue, there’s also the New Churches National Conference in Orlando, Florida, on April 21-24, 2008. Tim Keller and Ed Stetzer will be there too, along with 2,000+ in attendance. Many other A-list speakers, pastors, and church planting organizations / resources will be there. Mark DeYmaz and George Yancey will be leading a pre-conference session on planting & developing the multiethnic church.
2 phenomenal conferences for church planting pastors, leaders, and church planting churches.
