A few years back my friend J.R. Briggs had the dream of creating a space for “gutsy, hopeful, courageous and vulnerable for pastors to let go of the burden to be a Super Pastor?” He asked questions like:
- What if we could hold an event that was free from the thrills and frills of other pastors conferences?
- What if we came together as epic failures instead of how-tos?
- What if we were reminded that we’re not responsible for being ‘successful’ in ministry?
- What if we had a conference that was led not by household names, but by scandalously ordinary ministers and leaders?
If you are a church leader you need this. You need a space to be yourself, and hear from others in your situation. If you are in the Chicagoland area, mark your calendar for a road trip to Northern Seminary on April 26-27. If not drop J.R. a line. He might bring Epic Fail to your neighborhood. If that won’t work, he is also available as a personal coach.
