A week from today, Lemonade International will be represented in Washington, DC at The Idea Camp DC – A Collaborative Movement of Idea Makers.
We are gathering some of the most innovative and creative leaders from around the country (this means YOU!) to share ideas, intentionally network, and move collaboratively into idea-making. Whether your passion is church leadership, non-profit work, social entrepreneurialism, technology, media, creativity, culture making, church planting, spiritual formation, compassionate justice, etc., this is the conference for YOU.
The theme of the DC Idea Camp is “Justice and Compassion”, and what I love about the concept of the conference (besides the fact that it is FREE), is that it is a collaborative effort. Just as much value is placed on relational connections made in the hall between sessions as is placed on listening to someone speak from the stage during a session. Our time in DC should be very beneficial to the work of Lemoande International as we seek to learn and grow from others with like passion and to network with others who are engaged in similar or complementary work.
Along with attending and collaborating with others who share a passion for issues of justice and compassion, we will have the opportunity to facilitate one of the workshops at the conference –Macro and Micro Views of Compassion & Justice.
We’re looking forward to meeting and interacting with people who we have respected and followed from a distance, like Don Golden of World Relief, Dave Gibbons of NewSong, Dave Ferguson ofNew Thing Network and others. We’re am looking forward to learning from representatives of organizations I have a lot of respect for, such as, Mission Year, ONE, Leadership Network, charity: water and A Child’s Right.
Our friend, Chris Marlow of H.E.L.P., will also be facilitaing a workshop – “What I’ve Learned the First Year of Launching a Non-Profit”.
This should prove to be a great time. If you are able to… please join us in DC.
It will be well worth your time.
