Report on LK10 Conference (1)

The first annual LK10 Conference was held at the end of may at Abilene Christian University. This Conference was hugely significant because it was our first attempt at applying LK10 practices in a conference setting. We have lots of experience at living into these practices as individuals, as CO2 partners and as house churches. The Conference was a wonderful affirmation of the way the Lord can work through these rhythms in a conference setting.

Typical Christian conferences are built around "talking heads". Even though research shows that lecture is the least effective means of communicating information (not to mention changing lives), we continue to feature well known speakers at conferences. (This is similar to the high value for preaching in church services.) The LK10 Conference represented a major paradigm shift in that it was built around collaborative listening (to each other and to God). Over the next several posts, we'll tell stories about what this was like.

Talking about the priesthood of all believers vs experiencing the priesthood of all believers.


  1. Are any new online listening groups forming this summer?

  2. Hi Ben,

    We are planning for new groups this fall. We'll put the word out here on this blog.
