Christian Web Conference 2009

Posted on | April 22, 2009 | 1 Comment

Christian Web Conference 2009I will be one of the speakers at this year’s Christian Web Conference.  The conference is at Biola University (13800 Biola Ave, La Mirada, CA 90638) from September 11-12.

Here is a bit from their website:

The Christian Web Conference fosters community and learning through a combination of, idea roundtables sessions, and meal-time fellowshipping with web media experts. Attendees should expect to meet and interact with some of the top intellectual Christian web users in order to form friendships, learn how to improve their web media knowledge and ability from experts, and participate in vision casting for Christian use of web technologies. Ultimately, you should be a part of this conference because your brilliant ideas will be valued by others and because you can learn from the brilliant ideas of others. Your ideas and skills can help transform the way people use and think the web so come prepared to share and collaborate.

I chuckle at the “top intellectual Christian web users.”  Not sure I would ever use the terms to describe myself, but I guess it’s cool that someone would.  

As far as I know – at least for the moment – I am the only speaker directly discussing evangelism and church planting online.  They told me needed to pick a topic, talk about it for 20 minutes, and then facilitate a group discussion.  I decided to frame my topic as a question, “What is it going to take to plant the Gospel within every population segement represented online?”  (Readers of this blog will quickly recognize this as a strategy question.)  I hope to start a conversation that helps leaders consider the vision and consider what part they and their organization might play.

Anyway, it should be interesting.

    Sounds like a good conference and I hope it goes well. Do you think God can handle all this new technology for getting the message across – after all in his day it was all scrolls and papyrus (only joking of course). I always find it exciting to think that God knows how best to use the Internet already.

    Just one comment – I find the switching speakers list on the front of their website a little annoying. I must be getting old but I just can’t read that fast.

    Who is God?' was one of the top three sentences googled in 2007, according to Google Zeitgeist. According to Alexa, the top two religious websites are Muslim, with BibleGateway coming in at a close third. The Online Generation is spiritual. They are seeking. And the church is the last place they would go to find spiritual fulfillment. This site is dedicated to those walking with The Online Generation and living lives of obedience to all the commands of Jesus Christ.
