Join me at Rethink Leadership on April 26-27 in Atlanta

For the last 20 years I've been involved with events and conferences. Putting them on, producing them, attending, creating, and ultimately being impacted by them.

One of the things about conferences that is incredibly helpful, but hard to create is a peer to peer learning environment. An environment where the experts are not just on the stage, but actually in the seats next to you and at the tables around you. 

That's one of the many reasons I'm excited about Rethink Leadership, a gathering for senior pastors, lead pastors, and executive pastors happening next month in Atlanta on April 26-28. 

I'm helping curate this event along with Carey Nieuwhof and Reggie Joiner, and if you're in a leadership position in the local church or a non profit, this gathering is for you and you're invited! 

If you haven't registered for Rethink Leadership yet, please do so now!

TODAY, Thursday, March 16, is the last day you can get early bird pricing, but your registration also gets you into a pre-event reception Tuesday night.

Then over the next two days, you'll get a chance to interact not only with 600 other leaders from across the US and the around the world, but with world class leaders like Bob Goff, Reggie Joiner, Jon Acuff, Les McKeown, Jeff Henderson, Kara Powell, Dan Reiland, Geoff Surratt, Danielle Strickland, Carlos Whittaker, Clay Scroggins and more. We'll have main stage sessions, but also affinity conversations where the crowds are smaller and your questions get answered. 

So if you haven't locked down your spot at Rethink Leadership yet, do so NOW!

Look forward to seeing you in Atlanta next month!
