Whiteboard brings the heat

Quite a week for conferences. First the Purpose Driven Network Summit and today, a powerful conference called "Whiteboard" - One Day. Eight Influential Leaders. Thirty minutes each. That was going on in Reston, Virginia but several talks and interviews were streamed lived on the web via ConferenceChannel.Org. Vince Antonucci, Mark Batterson, John Burke, Mark Dever, Perry Noble, Darrin Patrick, Ed Stetzer, Tim Stevens.

I caught part of the talk by Vince Antonucci, author of "I Became a Christian and All I Got was this Lousy T-Shirt". His story of coming to Christ was amazing. Mark Dever (interviewed by Ed Stetzer, also SBC) had the most contrasting view on several subjects, but the diversity of viewpoints was quite interesting, and all had excellent points to make out of what they're passionate about - for example Tim Stevens on Leveraging Pop Culture to reach people for Christ ('Pop Goes the Church' which I reviewed recently).

Tony Morgan has posted some excellent notes from Whiteboard. (edit: also some very good comments from Perry Noble)
Check out the Whiteboard website if you want to watch any of the video clips.
