October has been an amazing month for me the last few years. Why October? I have had the unique opportunity to travel to Atlanta, GA to attend the Catalyst Conference. Catalyst is a conference focused towards church leadership that also encompasses on leadership outside of the church. Where the Willow Creek Leadership Summit hits a similar target, it focuses primarily on the age range of 45+ year old people, Catalyst seems to be geared towards the younger crowd.
In this post, I wanted to simply inform you of Catalyst (because it is coming up and worth your investment to go) and the impact it has had on myself. This last year was one where I saw change coming in my future and knew I was in a place of re-assessing a lot in my work life. While I was doing all of this, I learned a lot about various areas.
I don’t believe that I will be going this year, but thanks to technology I’ll get to catch up at a later date and watch twitter feeds!!
Putting Yourself Aside to Help
You Will Encounter the Rough Times
Perry Noble hit home with me on this one because he really zero’d in on the dry times in life and how we see this handled in the Bible.
The Master of All Genius
Seth Godin was as masterful as always in his talk on transformation and being a Linchpin.
A New Experience Can Rock Your World
Have you ever run into a new product, band, television show, or something; and you were initially critical? This was my experience with Gungor. Their initial sound wasn’t striking with me, but all of a sudden this song happened and it blew me away. When I moved outside if my own thought process, I was entered in with some new music that expanded my world and gave me an experience like no other.

If you get a chance, enjoy the surprise around every corner that takes place at Catalyst!
