The conference title tells you that those planning Catalyst Atlanta 2012 are serious when they say it will be “a revolution of ideas where you’ll challenge the process and think unconventionally.” They’ve even produced a video to illustrate the point. The conference title—Make—is shorthand for The Making of a Leader.
Leadership development is the theme for the three-day (October 3–5, 2012) gathering of 13,000 ministry leaders in Atlanta, who are invited to “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.”
The list of Catalyst speakers reads like a who’s who of relevant ministry leaders and influencers (more than 50 in all), including Andy Stanley, Craig Groeschel, Francis Chan, and Matt Chandler. It’s no wonder they summarize the conference’s focus in three words: Pure leadership adrenaline!
ECCU Regional DirectorJeremy Mooreand Ministry Development Officer Dennis Park will host an Executive Pastors Suite at the conference (October 4–5, 8 a.m.–5 p.m.) to meet with ministry leaders and give them an opportunity to network with their peers.
