Thank you to everyone who joined us for Day 2 of the Outcomes Conference, both in-person and online. Wednesday was filled with a wide range of educational opportunities, with a variety of workshops in the morning and afternoon, forums for our CCNL participants and a day-long CEO forum, bringing together leaders of some of the top ministries to share, learn and grow. It’s such a privilege to have experts in so many different areas of business and leadership come together to educate and equip ministry to further the Gospel.
Walt Wilson, founder of Global Media Outreach, and Judge Ken Starr led our morning general session today, discussing technology and finding your strengths. Wilson shared how his organization is using technology to share the Gospel all over the world, and encouraged fellow leaders to understand God’s heart for the advancement of His Kingdom and how to use the tools of the time to do that. Judge Ken Starr spoke on the importance of discovering our strengths and serving where we’re best used by God. Great leaders can help strengthen their entire organization by making this part of their culture and engaging employees with their mission.
We also left plenty of time on Day 2 for networking and making connections. Attendees enjoyed a free afternoon and evening with the Exhibit Hall open, complimentary refreshments, and a free showing of For the Life of the World during CLA movie night. One of the most amazing parts of the Outcomes conference is the way it brings so many thought leaders together to share, connect, build relationship and serve together. We know God is doing amazing things in the Kingdom as He brings people together to collaborate and serve.
We can’t believe there is just one more day of Outcomes 2015, but we’re so excited for what it has in store! Keep sharing and following along on social media and on our live stream (http://live.christianleadershipalliance.org).
