Saturday is for Seminars - Aug 29 2009

This is a slow couple of weeks for travel, which means I will be catching up on some things at the office. Sleeping in your own bed for a whole two weeks in a row is quite an accomplishment. ;-)

I will be doing some local church speaking. For the next three Sundays, I am in different churches-- and also preaching at one church on a Monday.

August 30, 2009, Two Rivers, Nashville, TN

I spoke at Two Rivers last week and was impressed. They have been through some hard times, but seem to have a desire to turn things and move into the future. It will be good to be back.

September 6, 2009, Long Hollow , Hendersonville, TN

Next Sunday, I am at Long Hollow filling in for my friend David Landrith. Long Hollow is a great church and is exploding in growth. In two weeks, we publish the Top 100 fastest growing churches in the country and, well, you will just have to wait and see... ;-)

August 31, 2009, Buck Run, Frankfort, KY

On Monday, Kaitlyn and I are skipping school and spending the day in Frankfort, KY. Then, in the evening, I am headed over to preach on "Magnificent Monday," for my friend Hershael York.

September 13, 2009, Freedom Church, Gallatin, TN

The Sunday after next, I am at Freedom Church in Gallatin, TN. Freedom Church is a contemporary church, in the "seeker" stream of evangelicalism. I am part of an outreach series they are doing. Terrell Somerville is a great guy and I look forward to being with them.

And, then there is the 5000-person (and growing) speaking event where I never leave my office. (This, and my weekly team meeting with the a research work group at the North American Mission Board, is convincing me of the value of video conferencing!)

This event is called "The Nines."
