Well its been more than 3 weeks since I got back to a very busy season at Grace. I got to attend the “Gurus of Tech” technical arts conference in Chicago, as well as spend a couple of days with the team at Lakepointe Church in Dallas, and a few more days at Willowcreek, South Barrington.
Many people have asked how the trip was, and its really hard to quantify the experience into a sentence – other than to say it was game-changing.
To sit in a room with 500 other church technical artists, and to learn from them, to hear about their struggles, and to bask in the presence of like-minded people was unlike anything I’ve ever experienced.
To see the excellence, the intentionality, and the dedication these churches put into their work is inspiring. It turns the “anything-will-do” attitude on its head, and really forces you to go back and grapple with the ‘why we do” questions.
I have started and restarted this specific post for weeks, trying to summuries what I learned, and I’ve realized that it’s not going to happen in a paragraph. So I’m going to crack-on and keep the posts coming, hopefully ill get to expand on one facet at a time, and share what I learned in a way that you guys will find useful!
Have any of you visited a church recently that challenged you to think about how church could be done better?
I’d love to hear about it!
