**UPDATE: Looks like even though Fred has given away a pass to this conference, Wisdom and Ben of Allaboutworship.com are giving another one away! —————— My friend Fred McKinnon is giving away a free registration to one of the premiere worship conferences held this year: WHEN: JULY 20-23, 2009 WHERE: Leawood, KS I’m honored to be invited to do some live blogging from the National Worship Leader Conference in Kansas this Summer. It will be awesome time of worship, training, teaching, and networking. If you are going, I sure hope to meet you. Worship Leader Magazine has teamed up with my blog here and TheWorshipCommunity.com to offer a cool contest – a FREE REGISTRATION to the National Worship Leader Conference! INCLUDED: Free Registration for One Person ($395/value) (travel, lodging, and optional meal plan not included) To find out how to win, go here!
I must be sure to let you know about The Idea Camp coming up in just a week or so in Irvine, CA. Unlike most conferences, the participants together make the expert, rather than talking heads who tell you what to do. This new kind of thinking seems to be a better way to learn best practices in a think-tank format not too unlike the cre:ate conference I attend each year. This conference is truly open source–free admission, user participation and collaborative. Cynthia Ware, an author, blogger and speaker on technology and innovation in ministry invited me to co-moderate a discussion with her on participatory social media and the church–Saturday, February 28. To read about our session go here and be sure to sign up on the site to let us know you are participating! Also please click over to The Digital Sanctuary, Cynthia has a blog post about the event. Hope to see you at the “un”-conference in Irvine! You going?
