This Wednesday, there will be a free leadership event that will take place online. The event, called The Nines, will begin at 9:09 am CDT, on 09/09/09, and could last around 9 hours. While the event is free, you need to pre-register.
Leadership Network asked about 80 leading communicators, “If you had nine minutes to talk one-on-one with thousands of church leaders, what is the one thing that you would tell them?” Seventy-five communicators responded, sending in their videos, and, according to the site, “The result is a series of passionate and personal messages that will help you and your church navigate into the future.”
It looks to be a great event. The nice thing, besides the cost (free!), is that because it’s online, we can come and go as necessary. Also, the videos will be available afterward so we can watch what we miss on Wednesday.
After skimming over the list of speakers, I’m especially looking forward to Leonard Sweet, Reggie McNeal, John Ortberg, Nancy Ortberg, Nancy Beach, Alan Hirsch, and Margaret Feinberg, as well as discovering other communicators with whom I’m not yet familiar.
I’ll try to post a review/recap of the parts I see.
