Catalyst Atlanta is this October 3-4 in Duluth, Georgia. Speakers include John Piper, Jon Acuff, Malcolm Gladwell, Andy Stanley, Lecrae, and many more.
I attended my first Catalyst in the fall of 2008 — the week before I started this blog. My fourth post on this blog, in fact, was a list of some highlights from Andy Stanley’s closing message.
When people ask me what leadership conferences I recommend, Catalyst is at the top. It serves you both in the short-term and long-term. Some conferences are great energy bursts, but don’t offer much long-term wisdom and guidance. Catalyst is strong on both fronts. It will give you a much needed energy boost and equip you with solid leadership wisdom for the long-term.
And, of course, I especially recommend it this year since John Piper, who I worked with for 13 years at Desiring God, is one of the speakers.
Catalyst is offering a special rate for readers of this blog. If you register by Thursday, August 22 you will get the special rate of $209 (the regular rate is $329, so this is a huge savings). Just register online using the rate code BLOG or by phone at 888.334.6569. You can find all the logistical details such as the schedule, FAQs, and so forth on their site as well.
What Catalyst Is
For those who want to know a bit more:
Catalyst Atlanta is a powerful gathering of young leaders, a movement of influencers and world changers who love Jesus, see things differently, and feel a burden for our generation. We seek to learn, worship and create together with a momentous energy passionately pursuing God.
On October 2-4, 2013, 13,000 leaders from across the United States and around the world will converge—a revolution of ideas where you’ll challenge the process and think unconventionally. Even more than a cutting-edge event, Catalyst Atlanta is an experience that leaves you enlightened, rejuvenated, and ready to embrace the life to which you’ve been entrusted and the journey to which you’ve been called. Expect a fully immersive learning, worship and creative experience, where timely inspiration can come from the thought leaders who grace our stage, or the person sitting in the seat right next to you.
This Year’s Theme
This year’s theme is known:
When you lead authentically, with an inner confidence birthed by your Creator, when you are willing to be true and vulnerable before God and others, you become a leader without pretense. A leader worth following.
You can only know where you are headed, when you know where you’ve come from.
Lead from who you are.
