Really excited to be apart of the Napkin Conference – I love the vision of this conference. To be a conference that is more about helping people clarify and even facilitate the dreams, ideas and visions God has given folks to do ministry different.
I’m really excited about going to Napkin for a few reasons.The first is the speaking line up they are all children’s pastors currently serving in a local church. I am a huge fan of hearing other kids guys who are still doing the work of the ministry not just retelling war stories of years past. To me how many of the speakers are currently pastors is a major part of what makes me decide to go to a conference. I am a huge believer in the local church. I believe that the church is God’s idea and is the vehicle he uses to reach a lost and dying world.
I also really like the fact that Napkin is going to be a bit smaller than other conferences to me that’s an advantage because it gives you more opportunities to have conversations with kidmin legends like Jim Wideman, Dave Wakerley, and Ryan Frank If you are coming to napkin or thinking about it use this opportunity to connect with those guys but also with other kidmin leaders who are attending.
Lastly I love the general session only thing. I have never been to a kidmin conference but I think I am really going to like having a shared experience. I love conferences with breakouts but being able to hear all the speakers and process everything together is going to be steller. Can’t wait.
