Archives For unconference

JVO and re:create

January 22, 2010 — Leave a comment

Last year I was privileged to attend re:create in Nashville, TN. It was one of the only conferences that I have ever been to that had me thinking, questioning praying, wondering etc etc. They call it an unconference and that is honestly the best description.

I was determined to go this year but the economy changed that. Another thing that changed that was the birth of my daughter in Sept. Thank God I had some money stored away for my wife to be able to take a maternity leave.

There are 1000 reasons why I am disappointed I can’t go this year. It’s the 10th Anniversary, tons of my friends are going and I would love to see them (some things are making up for that…I’ll post on that later), great networking etc etc…

One of the reasons is not being able to glean from John Voelz. I got to do some comic book art for his church last year and let me tell you he may be one of the most creative people I have met. God is using this guy to “create” out of the box things. His videos, as an example, are brilliant.

To all my re:create pals I met last year: I am sorry I can’t make it, but I WILL be there next year!
To all who have never heard about John Voelz…Time to get aquainted!

At Re:create this year I had the privaledge of hearing and worshiping with the fee band on the last day. They were fantastic. They even did a new song that they wrote that day. I have video of it, but I have a good feeling I’d totally get sued if I put it on youtube. That wont stop me from introducing it at the church though. ha ha.

I’m in the video here, but besides me you’ll see in the video:

#recreate Matthew Ward

Matthew Ward came to Recreate on a whim just to see what it was all about and to meet some new people. He was not scheduled to sing, but they had a great time of honoring our Christian Music heritage and asked him to sing something. Here is what he sang.

It’s 9PM Sunday night. What a day today. Great service in church. Huge announcement. Do you people need to wait for it? of course you do. I’ll let you know tomorrow. Flat tire: UGH! and jsut kissed my boys goodnight and goodbye. Heading off to Nashville in the AM before they even wake up.

Say a quick prayer for my beautiful wife who gets to take care of 3 boys this week while I’m away having fun.

My next post will be From Nashville. CYA Tomorrow.
