After a forever long drive in a rented minivan with the rest of the staff and Randy, we’re finally at Dusty’s parent’s house on the north side of Georgia. Why are we here? Because we’re headed to the Catalyst Conference and I’m totally excited about all we’re going to be exposed to and praying that we’ll be able to pick up and implement at least a few of the ideas we hear about. It’s so important to be able to get away and be exposed to different viewpoints and ideas TOGETHER as a staff.
Yesterday we spent most of the day looking back on the past, identifying where we believe God is working and directing us, and formulating our theme for 2007. I’m pretty excited and think we’ve latched on to something that will help guide are planning and scheduling as we layout 2007. We’ll share more as we get it defined, but we won’t roll it out totally until the beginning of the year (at least 3 more months). I’ve got to say, it feels good to have things planned and perculating this far out. I think we’ll do a much better job at executing our services and events in ’07 because of it.
