Dear Friends,

This September we will have our annual Executive Directors Retreat in Estes Park. I believe this will mark my 11th year of attendance and I look forward to it every year. Like any retreat, if we are honest, the content is great but the camaraderie among us is usually the highlight.

This year I have confirmed that Dan Grider will be our presenter for the week. We haven’t finalized all or our topics yet but he will hit topics from his book, as well as stats and latest trends on planting from all denominations. One topic Dan and I will develop relates to our Bible Colleges and raising the bar on teaching planting tracks in our colleges. Dan has done some teaching at Johnson University. I will do my best to invite a college representative from our colleges to join us in Colorado this year!!

If the weather is nice I hope to take at least one of our evening sessions outside by one of the YMCA fire pits or amphitheaters. I hope the fresh air and change of scenery will liven our talks over a Q&A session with Dan.

Please help me in getting this invite/update out and challenge our brothers to join us in Colorado!

Dan Grider, the founding architect of Ignite, began his work of church multiplication in the late 80′s. In 1990 he planted a vibrant church in southern California called Daybreak. Daybreak grew to over 1500 in attendance and launched nine church plants and campuses in 17 years. The next five years were spent repositioning Beach Church in Myrtle Beach, SC to be a reproducing discipleship-making environment. Out of the work in Myrtle Beach several churches have been planted.

Dan relocated to Knoxville, TN, a central location, where he could launch the Ignite Church Network for church multiplication in the southeastern United States. Through a mentoring and discipleship-making model, he has created a strong and vibrant network of churches that reproduce leaders who are leading transformational communities.
