Many of you will already have heard that Bill Hybels and Andy Stanley are going to be doing a one day leaders conference at the Kerith Centre on Monday 30th January 2012.
Most of us have heard Bill Hybels at the Global Leadership Summit. He is the most inspiring Christian leader I've ever met, not only through the way he speaks but also the way he lives his life has been an inspiration to me.
Andy Stanley is an outstanding communicator, as well as leading an incredibly dynamic and innovative church. His book "Communicating for a Change" is required reading for all the Kerith preachers, and my iPhone is full of his podcasts.
Getting these two leaders together on one day in the UK is amazing. If you're a leader in any capacity then please plan to be there.
You can book on the Willow website, £60 for WCA UK members and £75 for non members (which is amazing value - in my other job we were being charged £250 for a day learning how to use email!), but if you're part of Kerith you can get an even better rate of £30 for the day. To get that rate you need to go to the Kerith Centre reception and register there.
And if all that wasn't enough then the day after we're going to have a guy called Pete Scazzero with us. He speaks and writes on building emotionally healthy churches and Christ followers, and comes very highly recommended. More details here. Why not invest in yourself and come to both days.
Hope to see you there on the 30th and 31st - I'm excited about it already!
