Wednesday I head off to San Diego for my fourth year at the National Outreach Convention, known affectionately as NOC. I hope you’ll be there for all of the workshops, discussion forums, worship sessions, major speakers, and more. One of the really great things about NOC is the wealth of information, resources, and people that you encounter — all focused on outreach.
I’ll be leading a breakout workshop titled, Outreach in the Crises of Life. If you’re at NOC, drop in on Friday afternoon at 2:30 PM for 90-minutes of sharing about reaching out to those who are experiencing the most difficult situations in life. On Friday morning at 7:15 AM (bring coffee!) I am facilitating the Small Church Ideas Exchange.
Of course, I’ll see my friends at Outreach magazine, which I hope you subscribe to. Outreach publishes an annual small church issue, plus I write the “Small Church, Big Idea” column in each regular issue. Lots of small church stuff including good ideas that real people have used in real churches. I’ll be live blogging, and Facebooking some NOC events, so stay tuned!
