This year’s Catalyst Conference marks the 20th anniversary for one of the best Christian leadership conferences. In previous years, I’ve live-blogged Catalyst Atlanta as a part of the conference.
This year will be different. I am not live-blogging the event as an official part of Catalyst. I will be live-blogging the event in an unofficial capacity. This doesn’t change the great content that I will be sharing or the amazing speaker line-up you will be able to read about.
I’m in awe of the Catalyst 2019 speaker line-up. They’ve brought in some heavy hitters. You won’t be disappointed with the content these speakers share.
