A couple of weeks back, Brian McLaren talked to a room full of missionally-minded church planters and lay people at the TransFORM East Coast Conference (which was free by the way).
I thought it was a great message and well worth sharing here.
I had a great video chat with Charles Lee about the upcoming !deation Conference (April 5-6, 2010 in Long Beach):
Registration is taking place now www.ideationconference.com
A special web registration rate of $249 expires tomorrow (Jan 15, 2010) – so sign up today.
And I love that as part of your registration cost, you can pick a group to donate $25 towards — so with 400 registrations, !deation will be donating $10,000 to some great non-profits.
After hosting three great idea camps in 2009 (including #icdc & #icpnw) – Charles Lee @charlestlee is planning a new conference event geared specifically towards non-profits and those interested in humanitarian relief.
The initial !deation conference will be held April 5-6 in Long Beach, CA.
The !deation Conference is intentionally formatted to create a rich learning and sharing experience. Each element of the conference facilitates a different mode for engaging the content as well as fellow participants. The hope is that these various experiences will lead to inspiration, encouragement, new explorations, refinement, collaboration, and strategic implementation.
I chatted with Charles a week or so ago for the podcast and he shared some of his vision for !deation.
The conference will be a bit more structured than Idea Camp with key note addresses from folks like Scott Harrison, Eugene Cho, Wade Kawasaki and others.
There will also be smaller workshops to help folks connect with others in their given field.
Should be excellent!
It’ll be a couple weeks till we publish the full Charles Lee interview on the podcast – but you can hear a snippet of it (dealing with !deation) here:
I truly appreciate Charles’ heart for justice and compassion and wish him the best in all his endeavorers.
Tomorrow I’ll be sharing another video from #thenines — from author Sky Jethani.
Pure greatness! Be sure and look for it and watch it. It’s worth all nine minutes.
But in the meantime, I thought I’d share my notes from the event — in their raw form.
I thought about cleaning them up some but instead, I just made a quick PDF and decided to share them as-is, with no warranties or guarantees implied.
