The team that put the Converge Conference together nailed it. Seth Bartlette, Kathy Ryman, Adam Henderson, Ken Chupp, Carrie Badertscher, and Brad Thornton (there are many others I'm sure I missed... sorry) just flat kicked out an innovative, fresh and relative conference for student leaders.
I was able to serve as a track leader with three others, and there were 8 digital presenters who joined us. At the close of the conference, the team orchestrated a unique "benediction" that involved a closing thought or blessing from each digital presenter and the 4 track leaders.
The closing benediction of Converge was high quality, meaningful, powerful... I would call it downright beautiful.
Having been a part of putting together a large youth conference as well as various camps and retreats. It is an exhausting exercise. Many more times than not, the effort is well worth it. I hope the team that put this event together can feel and know their efforts were well worth it.
