We're pretty excited. We're going to the Purpose Driven Worship Conference & Festival at Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, Calif.
For starters, Saddleback is one of the "big" churches I've never been to (along with Willow Creek). I've learned so much visiting some of the breakout churches in Christendom (Mosaic, Christian Assembly, Angelus Temple, Crossroads Christian, Mariners, etc.), Saddleback will definitely be an experience.
Second, There will be some first rate speakers and worship leaders at the conference including Louie Giglio, Chris Tomlin, Tim Hughes, John Ortberg, Rick Warren, Rick Muchow, Bart Millard, Tommy Walker.
Next, it's four days! We have almost a week to absorb this stuff. We're looking forward to being in SoCal for a week soaking in the warm weather, good food, and familiar sites. The conference starts at the end of June and we'll probably stay until July 4th (It's becoming a tradition to be in California to celebrate Independence Day).
Well, we just wanted to share our excitement...
