Ambition: A29 Bootcamp

The next Acts 29 Bootcamp is going down November 10-11, 2009 in Louisville, KY at my second favorite church in North America, Sojourn Community Church. If you haven't been to a bootcamp before, you need to go. If you have been to a bootcamp, you need to go. Thinking of planting a church? Go. Pastoring? Go. Do you serve in a church? Then you need to be there. The main speakers are Matt Chandler, Darrin Patrick, Ed Stetzer, Kevin Cawley, Bob Thune, Dave Harvey and Steve Timmis. The conference is also offering six separate tracks with several breakout sessions, and a diverse group of worship leaders. Note that the days early enough to allow for good fellowship and networking.
