Connecting With Bloggers At Catalyst

When I go to a conference, the content is actually only a very small part of why I like to be there.  My primary desire is to network, meet new people, and reconnect with old friends/ministry compadres.  Yesterday I had some great connections with several bloggers.

The highlight had to be getting a little face to face with another worship leader, Ben Abu Saada.  Ben was probably one of the first worship leaders whose blog I started following.  For the past 3+ years we have interacted by email and blog comments, so it was great to have some good conversation in person.

I also got to connect with Todd Rhodes and talk ministry for a little bit.
Touched base with Ben Arment after Jon Tysons session on the church planting track.
And at the end of the evening, I ran into Jonathon Herron, a church planter I respect highly and have been following since before his church launched.  He also has an adopted kid right around Caleb’s age.

And of course at the very end of the evening I got to hang with all my old ministry partners from Revolution.

How about you?
Do you have anyone you are “friends” with as a result of online communication?
What blogging friend would you like to hang with sometime?

    The only regret I had at the conference was not getting to break away from my team to grab lunch or something with you.
    It was awesome meeting you face to face.
    Later!
