So I go to a lot of conferences. Friends kid and ask if I am “a professional conference attendee” and that term is pretty close to accurate. It is part of what I do, really one of my favorite parts of what I do.
Last week I was at Randy Elrod‘s Recreate Conference. It was wonderful. (No really, it was. I am working hard not to be that person that says the obligated “it was amazing.” So you can trust me when I say it was wonderful.) I left knowing some new incredible people, having heard some new incredible music, and exploring some new incredible ideas. And I left refreshed which is virtually unheard of in “conference world.”
Next Friday, I am headed to Arkansas, of all places, for Idea Camp: Orphan Care. I am attending this one for personal reasons because I just feel prompted to go. (Not sure what that is about. No, I am not planning on coming home with an orphan in hand.) I just want to know more about what options I have for helping alleviate the orphan crisis. We are called so clearly throughout scripture to care for orphans. And I want to know how.
And then on Tuesday, March 1, I head to Orange County for Catalyst West. So freaking excited to get out to California and see all my favorite “left coast” friends. And to go to the conference where I’ll learn from really wise leaders including Andy Stanley, Britt Merrick, Bob Goff, Matt Chandler, and of course, Michael Hyatt. (PS – It’s not too late to register, just go here.)
This year during Catalyst West, I am helping host a lunch for Mercy Ministries on THURSDAY where we will eat FREE IN-N-OUT BURGER and hear more about what we can do to stop sex trafficking. (Here’s hoping some of the cheeseburgers come ‘Animal Style.’) It will be informative and fun, a powerful combination. If you are going to be at CatWest you should join us. Register here.
There are more conferences coming but I will save them for another post…this one has my head spinning.
All this to say if you are going to be around, shoot me an “@lindseynobles” or a “D lindseynobles” and let’s exchange awkward introductions. No, for real, I would love to meet you.
You headed anywhere fun soon?
