Cultivate 2009: See you in Chicago!

September 25, 2009 by

I’ve said it before: The best part of conferences aren’t the speakers, it’s the relationships and conversations that happen at the conference. A new conference, Cultivate, has embraced that and done away with the speakers and slideshows.

The speakers have been replaced by facilitators and the presentations have been moved out of the way to give plenty of room for conversation. Whether your world is about social networking, design, web, outreach or inreach, we’ll be talking about it. Cultivate is all about collaboration and conversation as we focus on how to communicate who Jesus is and how He transforms our lives.

Don’t just take my word for, it look at why Dawn Nicole Baldwin, Matt Knisely, Tim Schraeder, Cynthia Ware and Carlos Whitaker are all excited about this one day conference in the heart of Chicago.

Oh, and did I mention the proceeds are going to support Blood:Water Mission and the Center for Church Communication (our nonprofit parent)? If good causes aren’t enough, how about affordability? Registration is under $70. And as a bonus, you can stay in the Chicago area a few extra days if you like and check out Story.

What conversations are you looking forward to?

    I am glad to see the movie coming to play here in Tulsa. I wish the site had more of a traditional trailer though…

    Michael, excited is an understatement. I’m really stoked for this conference. It’s a total game changer in my book. I think anyone who communicates (which is everyone right) should be here for this event. Just to show you how passionate I am I want to offer a free pass to #Cultivate09 in Chicago which I will pay out of my own pocket. Let me know why you should go and what you want to get out of this unique one day conference.
