The Sticks Day 1
Today was just awesome! I'm down in Ohio with the entire staff of our church for The Sticks, a conference for pastors and leaders who are ministering in small and medium size towns. So far I'm just loving this!
I have a ton of things that I would love to blog about this conference... but I think the jet lag from last week's vacation is catching up on me :-) So here are a few very quick highlights.
- The worship music was AWESOME! I'm definitely a loud music kind of guy at this team just rocked! Loved it.
- Mark Batterson was excellent! His talk really set the stage for the day.
- Charles Hill was great. I LOVED his points on being afraid of people and stepping ahead of God and how those two things can cripple our ministry.
- I was a tad disappointed with the workshop sessions... I was hoping the guys up at front would be more of mediators and get people into the conversation... Instead it's more of a Q&A and they do most of the talking... maybe that was the original intention... but I didn't get that sense from everything that I read about the conference. Oh well. It's still an AWESOME conference so far.
Looking forward to day 2 tomorrow... but now I can barely keep my eyes open and we have a 7 hour drive home after a full day tomorrow... so I better get to sleep!
