A New Slant on Leadership
Christian conferences have drawn from a range of speakers: those with TV audiences (Robert Schuller, Pat Robertson), those with mega-church credetials (Rick Warren, Bill Hybels), those with academic status (Martin Marty, Klyne Snodgrass), and most recently those who publish books (the list is too long). I don't think I have heard a conference speaker or seen a promotional piece for conferences with anyone who has NOT published a book. I just picked up a new book by Kester Brewin that is loaded with internal endorsements from other authors from the same publishing house. Do all speakers publish? Are all published authors speakers?
What if there was a conference featuring unpublished pastors from churches under 150 in attendance who have served faithfully for more than 20 years? Depth or yawn?
