Getting the Most from Blue (Even if you’re not attending!)

Blue 2014 is right around the corner! Here are a few more details on logistics. Check out the FAQ for more info.

  • Registration opens on Friday from 8:00-9:00 and Saturday from 8:30-9:00 [Full schedule here]
  • Dress for Blue is casual
  • Meals: Boxed lunch provided on Friday as well as snacks. Dinner is available for purchase on-site. Dessert reception from 6:15-7:00pm is included with your registration.

The more that I learn about the speakers and hear about the surprises planned for us, the more that my anticipation builds. However, let’s remember that this is just a shot in the arm for a larger movement that is taking hold at How can we get the most out of the experience AND transition it into our post-conference lives?


Why a conference? There is power in bringing everyone together to hear a common vision. (We covered a lot under networking and social media.) In the coming week, watch for new opportunities to connect with others in your channel.

After the conference, is there someone you can share with your notes with? Is there a co-worker or someone in your small group that would benefit from what you learned?


The Blue team has brought in world-class speakers. Many of them have book, blogs, and websites where you can learn more about their work and influence. Visit each of them in Office Hours.

Is there someone in your life or career field who you admire? Ask them to meet with you in a mentoring relationship. Perhaps there is someone who would benefit from hearing your life experiences too!


You want more books? We’ve got them. Hearts and Minds bookstore will be on-site with a wide collection of books on faith and vocation. I could spend hours talking to Beth and Byron, and they are fantastic resources for finding a little something for your own library and your small group.

Beyond ordering from their extensive collection of books, The Hearts & Minds website also has a great blog full of book reviews and “Best of” lists.

See you on Friday!

Hi My Friend,

​​​I’d like to invite you to join me on March 24 & 25​ at Blue Conference
Blue is a two-day ​event​ designed to engage people thoughtfully in difficult conversations through curated talks​ (think Ted Talks). Together we’ll explore the ideas shaping our culture and ​explore how​ to find answers in a changing culture​ and embody the gospel in this moment.​ ​ I think you’ll enjoy the conference so I already purchased a ticket for you. Here is a sample of the topics and speakers:

· Sexual Brokenness and the Hope of the Gospel // Steve Arterburn
· Race, Faith and Hope for America // Dr. Michael Waters
· Rediscovering God: Reconciling Faith and Science // Mike McHargue
· The Science of Feeding the World // Dr. Hongda Chen

Please let me know if you can join me as soon as possible.
