Last week, I heard one of the best conference talks I’ve ever heard. I’m not joking or trying to hype something, either.
It was from Andy Stanley at the Preach Better Sermons event in Atlanta. Andy talks about preaching with unchurched people in the room. He talked about how he prepares and delivers messages that actually connect with unchurched people. It was brilliant. One attender just sent us this:
I want to thank you for providing a place where someone who communicates at a pretty high level to large crowds could be challenged & grow. It’s honestly been years since I’ve really been challenged with a new way of thinking. Both Jeff & Andy’s sessions did that for me. I walked away with several new thoughts & practical ways to work on the craft of communicating. My ministry, preaching style & our church are better because of Friday. Hands down the best time & money we have spent all year.
You’ve got six more chances to hear this message because the Preach Better Sermons LIVE event is heading to Chicago, Nashville, New York, Dallas, Los Angeles and Orlando. Plus, there will be three other messages at each event. Jeff is doing one (and it’s incredible). The host pastor or a special guest is doing one (great people). And I’m doing a session.
If you use the code PREACH, you can get the lowest rate. Here is the full schedule with dates, locations and guest speakers.
- September 27 – Chicago – Soul City Church – Jarrett and Jeannie Stevens
- October 18 – Nashville – Cross Point Church – Pete Wilson
- November 16 – Los Angeles – Glenkirk Church – Reggie Joiner
- December 6 – New York – New Life Fellowship – Pete Scazzero
- January 23 – Dallas – Concord Church – Bryan L. Carter and Reggie Joiner
- February 21 – Orlando – TBD – TBD
If you’re a pastor or communicator, I really recommend you attend one of these six one-day events. When it’s all said and done, we will create a DVD of the full experience, but it won’t have Andy’s talk. That one is exclusive for the attenders. We’re not webcasting or broadcasting, so make plans to attend.
