I’m super excited to be part of The Summit this November 9-10 in Atlanta, Georgia. This event is put on by The Youth Cartel (i.e. Mark Oestreicher and Adam McLane). I love their ideas for this event, and love their passion for youth ministry. I got to spend a week with them in Haiti back in February of 2010 as part of an Adventures in Mission trip.

This is what The Youth Cartel writes about the upcoming Summit conference:

There are other amazing youth ministry events. We love ‘em (they’re mostly run by friends of ours). But we at The Youth Cartel wanted to try something different, something we’ve been dreaming about for two years.

We’ve always been big fans of TED talks, and are creating an event with that vibe. We want our imaginations stirred. We want to dream together. We want to grab hold of hope. And we want to do all of this with you.

I’m excited to be a part of this venture and will be speaking on The Anxiety of Teenagers.

Whether you are in the Atlanta area, or in another part of the country, we would love to have you join us. It will be a great two days of ideas, conversations, connecting with old friends, and building new relationships.

Here is a funny look at the upcoming conference (I promise you that’s not me).
