Externally Focused Conference Day 1






















The first day of the Externally Focused Church Conference was great. On Sunday night we had a bunch of speakers and friends over dinner--brisket and chicken that Don Wilcox put cooked since I was just returning from Houston late on Sunday afternoon.
Our two plenary speakers, Alvin Bibbs of Willow Creek and Rick McKinley from Imago Dei were just great. This was preceded by five pre-conference intensives (of 3.5 hours each) where participants could go deeper in one area. I taught Becoming an Externally Focused Church, Doug Pollock led the charge on Irresistible Evangelism, Amy Sherman on Going Deeper, Don Simmons on Volunteers and Jack Jezreel on Mercy and Justice. Great feedback on all sessions.

Hey Eric, don't know if you remember me - I sat in on a conversation between you and Craig Johring at DCC in Jan. We were talking about the diffusion of innovation bell curve, and I mentioned that "crossing the chasm" might be worth looking at to tweak the curve. I was just reading another blog and thought of the conversation. Might be worth taking a look at:
