This is the week of the National Pastor's Convention here in San Diego. This is my first NPC, and there are lots of things I'm looking forward to–including getting my ministerial world built up and shaken up by the likes of:

  • Larry Osborne 
  • William Willimon
  • Bill Hybels
  • John Ortberg
  • Shaine Claiborne
  • Brian McLaren
  • Rob Bell 

If you're out here, be on the look out for me…I'll be the guy with the cup of coffee :)
