I am excited about this coming Monday – Wednesday and TGC13 (The Gospel Coalition National Conference in Orlando FL). There are many reason that one would attend a conference of this caliber. The speakers are top-notch, the content will be out of the world, the deals on books are worth the pice of admission and its in Orlando FL (it was 29 out last night at my house, and it will be 79 there). Apart from all of these reason, one of the main things I love about these types of large events is connecting. Now if you know me at all you will know that I am a networker. I love connecting with people.
If I am to be totally honest I would say the number one reason I attend these types of events is to connect with people and build kingdom relationships I can’t even begin to tell you the different blessings and things I have gained from the friendships formed by these types of connections.
The reason for this blog post is two-fold. One if you will be at TGC13, I would love to connect with you. Hit me up on Twitter and lets grab a coffee, or a meal (if you want to treat!) The second is I will be speaking twice at TGC13 and would love you to pray for my sessions. The frist one will be a youth ministry sessions on Gospel Centered Youth Ministry: Building on Jesus not on Jokes. The second session will a youth ministry panel moderated by Tim Challies Wednesday at 7:45am at the RTS stage, come check it out. Thanks for the prayers not only for me, but for my wife as she cares for our four children and fess me to do this trip.
