It’s been a week of exciting news in the world of church communications events.
First on the list, the Center for Church Communication is excited to announce a new conference, Cultivate, coming to Chicago on October 27, 2009. It’s not just new because it’s new, but new because it’s doing things differently. We hesitate to call it a conference, but that’s the category it fits in (and get together just doesn’t seem catchy enough). So why another conference? Because Cultivate isn’t about talking heads. It’s about conversations and engaging with other communicators. That’s right–no fancy keynote presentations. Cultivate brings ministry and marketplace leaders to the table, and the people will drive the content.
As if that weren’t enough the very next day is Story, Ben Arment’s first project since leaving Catalyst. Part theater, part conference, Story is a first-of-its-kind experience that will bring together six master communicators, all focused on telling the greatest story ever told.
Can it get any better?
Oh, yes it can. The very next day is an opportunity to go even deeper in Story through workshops with illustrators, designers, scholars, authors and communication experts focused on your story as a church.
Cultivate + Story … this is gonna be good! If you’re involved in communicating the story of the gospel for your church, you won’t want to miss these events.
