On Tuesday, September 7, 2010, LifeWay Christian Resources is hosting a one-day online conference called “The Exchange.” The conference will be hosted by Ed Stetzer, LifeWay Research Director, and will involve LifeWay President, Thom Rainer. The conference will be held from 10am – 4pm (CDT) with online check-in opening at 9am. For those in the Nashville area, you may participate as part of a live audience. Registration for the live audience is $10 and includes lunch. Registration can be completed by following this link and scrolling to the ‘register online’ button on the page.
The theme for this conference is what drew my attention and thus is the reason I am posting about it here. The theme is “Transformational Small Churches.” According to a blog post by Ed, the conference will involve “Thom Rainer, LifeWay President…along with a panel of small church pastors as we talk through how small churches are making a biblical impact in the lives of their members and in their communities. As always, this will be interactive and participants can submit questions through the online chat feature that we will be answering throughout the day.”
I encourage everyone to attend this conference. If you are able, get your staff together at church or gather a group of small church pastors and participate in the conference together. Order in lunch (if you are in the Kansas City area, let’s get together for this conference and throw in some good KC BBQ from Smoking Guns…or Arthur Bryant’s…or Gates…mmmmm, mmmmm! Now, what was I sayin’? 🙂 )!
Here is the schedule for the day, as posted by Lizette Beard, Project Manager with LifeWay, in the comments on Ed’s aforementioned blog post on this conference:

I hope to ‘see’ you at the conference!
