If you are in the Seattle area, or if you’re looking for a good reason to be, I’d encourage you to look into The New Conspirators conference put on by Mustard Seed Associates. Two friends who I greatly respect, Eugene Cho and Dwight Friesen, are among an excellent group of presenters. As Christine Sine described it to me: “we do believe that we are bringing together a broader spectrum from the emerging, missional, monastic & mosaic streams of renewal than any previous conference has done.” I certainly couldn’t argue with that.
I’ve been to a number of more well-known national conferences, but I enjoy these smaller to medium sized ones, that we have our fair share of here in Seattle. The presenters are almost always accessible for further dialogue, and the smaller crowd provides more opportunity to connect with others on a similar journey.
