A few quick thoughts from Conclave '09
A small group of folks from my church have joined me in Duluth, Ga this week for the annual "Conclave" youth pastor's conference. I'll right a more in-depth analysis of the conference once I return. But for now here are my highs and lows: High Opening worship session - Todd Agnew lead music and was freak'n awesome and then Francis Chan spoke for about an hour. He was top notch as always and only cemented the fact as to why he is my favorite communicator alive today. Low Brock Gil the MC / magician...errrr illusionist. I forgot we are at a baptist conference so you can't call something "magic". I get this feeling Brock tried and failed at making it in Vegas so he turned his attention to Christian entertainment since Christians are notorious for jumping on any kind bad quality entertainment if the words "Jesus", "God", or "Christian" can be labeled with it. (ex. see 90% of all contemporary "Christian" music"
