Mark O…I would definately be blogging for the ATL conference, if I was going. Unfortunately this year I am unable to attend the ATL conference, I chose to get married instead :) Back in May anyway. I will be praying for you all, and hopefully will be able to get lots of updates. Thanks for your ministry!

I’ll be blogging, probably starting Monday. Provided I get up early enough to have time to waste at the airport, my first post will probably be sometime around 5:30 am central Monday morning. Of course, that won’t really be from the convention just yet.

Not sure what Len means… especially since we’re roommates. But I will be regular blogging, live blogging, and maybe some other cool forms of blogging from ATL.

I’ll be there! I am ready for a vacation and to be motivated! And I’m bringing one of my volunteers too this year, and it is her first time! I will try to take pictures when she registers! Is anyone else going to Rob Bell on Monday night?

This is totally off topic, but if you could share this prayer request with your readers it would be appreciated: this is the weekend of the National Catholic Youth Conference, in Columbus, OH. Early this morning one of our attendees was killed by a hit and run driver ( The conference is going on, but prayers from the wider ym community would be most appreciated.

Cweber- there is a great prayer community over at I know that’s a shameless plug but at the same time there are dozens of people who would def pray for that.

Just click on “forums” and you should be able to post a prayer request in the prayer section.

I’ll be blogging again from Atlanta as well.

What do you think of throwing a post up for all the folks who will be twittering from the convention as well. I “followed” several folks on twitter at the St. Louis convention and thought it was great!

My twitter feed is .

See you next week.

I’ll be blogging from the convention ( My entries will be a detailed list of everything involving the antics of Len and Adam that falls under “What happens at NYWC, stays at NYWC”. I mean, I’m just here to throw in a shameless plug for Youth Ministry Exchange.

It’ll be really awesome to read all your blogs and meet some of you face-to-face!

Take care,

Looking forward to it - just put up my first NYWC Post….
