Conferences are a great way to hone your skills, whether you are a pastor, a church leader, a consultant, or in any way involved in the Church. While I don’t keep a comprehensive list on CTT, I do feel that it’s valuable to share information about upcoming conferences from time to time.

groundSWELL by Leadership Network

Happening online Thursday, March 1, Leadership Network has put together a conference that is all about the future of the Church. All the people being interviewed are teenagers, which should make for a really valuable and interesting online church conference. Oh yeah, it’s free!

ECHO 2012

Echo Conference 2012 will be held July 25-27, 2012 in Dallas, Texas. Put on by the folks at ECHO Hub, this is a must go to conference, and tickets are priced at $139 right now, which is great for such a valuable conference.

While theEcho 2012 lineup is “remaining a secret for the time being,” they promise a three-day gathering of artists, geeks, and storytellers who serve the Church that won’t disappoint.

Texas Ministry Conference

The Texas Ministry Conference will be held next month, February 16, 2012 in Houston. This conference has been educating churches, schools, and ministries since the late 80’s when they partnered with the Houston Chapter of the NACBA. Since that time, the conference has grown each year.

This is by no means a comprehensive list, so if you have another conference you’d like to mention, please feel free to leave a comment.
