Brian Bailey Preface to the Revised Edition

Session on Weblogs at Creative Church Conference

Each January, Fellowship Church and Ed Young host the Creative Church Conference. Thousands of pastors and church leaders from across the country come to Dallas/Ft. Worth to share ideas on how to model our creative God in everything we do. Every church should be a dynamic, innovative place that reaches the unchurched and builds believers. The conference is one of the highlights of the year for me as I see Fellowship and the role of the local church in a completely new way. This year, Ed will be joined by Andy Stanley and Rob Bell, two incredible leaders and speakers.

In addition to a number of general sessions, the conference also features a day of breakout sessions. This year, Terry Storch and I will be leading a session called, WWW: Web, Weblogs, and What's Next. We hope to cover much of what we've learned over the past year on our blogs, address the how and why of weblogs and RSS, and what role the latest and greatest technology (hardware and software) should play in the local church. If you're interested, January is a great time to visit Texas (unless you happen to live in southern California). We hope to have two great Q&A sessions that lead to ongoing conversations.

And through the wonder of weblogs, that conversation can start now!
