Converging on Catalyst

Posted by Lori

One of the things Brandi and I are saying lots right now is: Can’t wait until October … Can’t wait until October.

Why? Catalyst in Atlanta October 6-8.

Sure there is the opportunity to hear from leadership authorities including Andy Stanley, Seth Godin, TD Jakes, Craig Groeschel, Francis Chan, Beth Moore, Perry Noble, and Christine Caine, along with several innovative thinkers and practitioners like best-selling author Daniel Pink, charity: water founder Scott Harrison, Gabe Lyons, First Response Team founder Tad Agoglia, and Rani Hong, winner of the United Nations Human Rights Award.

That would be good in and of itself.

But this year everything special and wonderful converged. Jud and Pete are both doing Labs … which means that Brandi and I can tag along … which means that we are going to get to see each other … which means that Tiffany and Jessica are working on trying to make it … which means we’re going to have a big, fat, super-fun Leading and Loving It get-together. And if you are attending Catalyst, we want to invite you to hang out with us.

We aren’t exactly sure what we will be doing yet, but you can be sure that it will involve lots of food and laughing. We hope to have more details soon.

Oh and FYI, there are other awesome people doing Catalyst Labs besides Pete & Jud. Speakers like Michael Hyatt, Mark Batterson, Anne Jackson, John Ortberg, Mike Foster, Reggie Joiner, Jamie Tworkowski, Alan Hirsch, Gayle Haggard, Chris Hodges, Jon Acuff, Tim Elmore, Charles Lee, Chris Seay, Chris and Phileena Heuertz, and others.

    I so want to go. My husband has been attending since the beginning. I always stay with the kiddos. He has been trying to convince me to go……you just might have tipped the scales. Now what to do with the kids? hmmmmmm.
