I look forward to this all year. It is, hands down, my favorite event personally.
I love the combination of brilliant ministry and marketplace leaders that are invited to teach.
I love the electric vibe of being in the same room with 12,000 other passionate leaders with a heart for making a difference for God.
I love how the Catalyst team consistently surprises me, going above and beyond year after year. From simple things like geo tracking games to fun toys on the seats to giving me a chance to do something practical when I'm there.
One year we we all chipped in to build a new water system for an impoverished village in Africa, another we personally filled and shipped shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child and yet another we helped TOMS Shoes help kids in need. They tee up the opportunities and make it easy to get involved. I'm not just learning or connecting with others--I'm able to do something in the moment as well.
But the part I love the most is my teenage son has been coming with me for 3 yrs now. He'll be in college next Fall, so this might be the last one we can do together for a little awhile. [Hold on--I think I need a moment...]
If you haven't already registered, today is the last day
to snag the early bird rate.
Yes, I attend a lot of conferences
and I'm frequently asked which ones are truly worth it.
This is the only one I register for a year in advance...
For the past six years.
