Once again, I am thrilled to announce to you that the 2011 Band of Bloggers gathering will take place in conjunction with The Gospel Coalition National Conference on Tuesday night, April 12, 2011. This will be the fifth year we have hosted an event like this, and we are excited to bring a new format to this year’s meeting.
The theme for this year’s gathering is The Gospel Procession. A procession entails a concerted effort by a community to catalyze a movement, and in our case a gospel movement. A lot of talk is talking place on the Internet regarding being “gospel-centered,” and what this theme seeks to do is invoke the participation of all those who love the gospel and desire to leverage their lives for its advance in every sphere of their lives. Therefore, the purpose and theme transcends the gathering and endeavors to see a gospel procession take place through our blogging and influence on social media and other various online networks.
I have asked ten other men to join me in facilitating this meeting. During our event, they will moderate round-table discussions as well as participate in panel discussions on related topics. The men leading this event are:
Justin Taylor, Tim Challies, Joe Thorn, Steve McCoy,
Jared Wilson, Trevin Wax, Justin Buzzard, Collin Hansen,
John Starke, Owen Strachan, and Tim Brister
You will not want to miss this year’s gathering. Of course, we plan to unload many goodies in your backpack as well. Pre-registration is required and now
available online closed. Dinner will be provided as part of the event which will begin at 5:oo PM Tuesday night (April 12). The registration cost for this year’s gathering is $25.
Stay tuned for more information, including the breakdown of this year’s format, book giveaways, and greater explanation of what we are calling a “gospel procession.” For now, here’s a summary breakdown of this year’s Band of Bloggers gathering:
