If you are a Christian and live in North America consider these 6 reasons for joining me at Indigitous Waterloo from November 5-7. (A day pass for Nov 6 is available).
1. The Goal
Indigitous is about helping Christians everywhere use and leverage digital strategies to grow in their faith and to help others discover Jesus. Exciting!
2. The speakers
– CEO Don Van Meer took his company on a transformation to go completely digital.
– Esteban Contreras is the Director of Strategy at Sprinklr and knows social media inside out.
– Matt Brubaker is bringing the Jesus Film to millions with his app.
– Elle Pyke has put on TEDx events and is passionate about helping small churches use social media.
3. The tone
The tone won’t be preachy. It’ll be insightful, quick and collaborative. I’m especially excited about the Live Learning sessions on the afternoon of the 6th where 9 speakers will share 15 minute talks with practical ideas from their experience.
4. The Venue
We’re meeting right in the heart of Canada’s Silicon Valley in the same building as Google and other major world tech players, including over 60 startups. If we’re going to use digital strategies to see the gospel spread we need to be right there with the movers and shakers. In this environment, ideas and innovation can really flow.
5. The Friendships
This is a great opportunity to rub shoulders with other Christians trying to have an impact. I’ve found the types of connections these events generate last for years.
6. The Collaboration
When like-minded people get in the same room there’s some to be synergy. I’m expecting new ideas, partnerships and projects to be spun out from 48 hours of engagement.
Hope to see you in Waterloo in a few weeks! (Register here)
