I’ve been enjoying Catalyst West these last 2 days…virtually. Although I missed the awesome networking, etc. I gained a lot.
If you, like me, could use a new leadership zap-in-the-arm, I have compiled the best places to find recaps and minute-by-minute notes.
Social Sites: (I like Scribblelive best for this)
Blogs with Recaps/scribblelive input
Leading and Loving (she has a bunch of the people I didn’t list above)
Small Town Pastor (covering the Hirsch Lab)
Crimmel.com (After the first session, he uses Scribblelive, which you have to figure out how to read, but he takes the best notes! It’s like getting a transcript!)
Eric Bryant not only has his notes, he also has an interview with Brad Lomenick posted on his teleseminar page.
Cynthia Ware put up information on ParaTweet, pics, links, etc. – this looks totally cool!!!
Trevor Lee has a great list of one-line recaps.
Ben Arment – Pictures of Catalyst from beginning to end.
This speaker list below isn’t exhaustive, but check out this lineup:
Andy Stanley – Uncertainty in Leadership
Guy Kawasaki – Branding, marketing, “if you try to create something that appeals to everyone, you will end up with mediocrity”
Rick Warren – Call to Mission. (I liked the quote “Energy management is more important than time management.”)
Alan and Debra Hirsch – Redefining family for the church today. This was a lab, and not covered except in this blog, so I linked it for you here.
Erwin McManus – Living a heroic life, calling and helping others to live theirs.
Craig Groeschel – “What we believe determines what we do.” “There are 4 billion people who need Christ, how can we claim to be a megachurch?”
Francis Chan – Pray for boldness. “In conversation, do people talk about you more than the Holy Spirit?” “I was taught how to teach exegetically, but I wasn’t taught to live that way.” “Maybe we have scared churches because we have scared pastors.”
Perry Noble – You Can Do This! “The size of the vision that God will give me is in direct proportion to the amount of pain I am willing to endure.”
Also, here’s a video short connected to Luis Palau’s presentation.
