2009 NCLI, Emory University, Atlanta, GA

I just returned from a week in Atlanta. I was on the leadership team for the New Church Leadership Institute, a training event for church planters and church revitalizers. It was a lot of fun working with a great group of people dedicated to growing existing churches and planting new ones. My role was basically to be helpful and do whatever needed to be done to make the NCLI a great experience for everyone. So I lead worship two mornings, provided afternoon music breaks, taught a seminar on social networking and Web design, drove the shuttle bus, helped out with the bookstore, and made lots of great friends. Find out more about the NCLI by visiting growtheucc.org. Our goal for next year is to have 500 people at the event! The energy this year was great. It’s good to know that there is a new generation of leaders in the United Church of Christ who have the gifts and the skills to work for a healthy, hopeful future for our churches.
