In the ministry world, there are so many books and conferences that it can become overwhelming. If we aren’t careful we can bounce from one conference to the next without ever implementing anything we learn or toss them all out completely.
At the same time, creating space in our lives to hear from God and to develop our own leadership abilities remains a powerful way to invest in our own future.
With all that said, here are some great upcoming events I would highly recommend. Some are online and free. Others may require a plane ticket and registration cost. Either way, we need to make sure we are investing in our future so we can invest in others more effectively.
Terra Nova (mountains outside of Los Angeles Sept. 5th-7th) – includes David Arcos, Erwin McManus, among many others.
Steve Saccone Teleseminar (free conference call on Sept. 8th) – Steve serves as the Mosaic Pasadena campus pastor and his first book Relational Intelligence: How Leaders Can Expand Their Influence Through a New Way of Being Smart comes out this month.
