Can it already be September? We're 6 weeks out from our first national conference and so excited we might just break out into song. It is Music City after all.
Several years ago, when we started dreaming about gathering in Tennessee to share best practices with friends from the wider world, one of our first ideas was to offer rejuvenation and connection through story and song. Because we call Nashville home, music has played a role in shaping our understanding of community. We can't imagine offering hospitality to out of town friends without a few songs in the mix.
Over the past couple of months, we've introduced you to the visionary keynote speakers who are scheduled to be with us. Now, we are thrilled to announce that Becca Stevens, Dr. Nicholas Hitimana, and Martina Vandenberg will be joined by:
Radney Foster - Celebrated Americana singer/songwriter who has penned hits for Keith Urban, Dixie Chicks and more.
Ashley Cleveland - Three-time Grammy and two-time Dove award-winning singer/songwriter.
Marcus Hummon - Grammy award-winning singer/songwriter who has written hits for Rascal Flatts, Tim McGraw and more.
So far, representatives from 29 states have registered. Remember if you encourage a friend to register, you'll receive a $25 gift card from Thistle Farms. It's shaping up to be a powerful and inspiring event. We hope you'll join us in the circle October 13-15, 2013. We'll be the ones singing along.
