Thrive North Dakota Highlights!

October 18, 2010 at 12:49 pm Leave a comment

Thrive North Dakota has been completed…and what an awesome ride it was!  I know we will be posting photos and maybe some videos at the TCI site (, but I wanted to give you some first hand stats and descriptions.

First…the basic demographics:

* Over 400 in attendance representing over 27 churches.

* Paul Knight and the people of Hope Church ( were AH-MAZING!  Great hospitality, great hearts, great people, great passion for the community

* Response from people was great and we had media coverage in the news media for both Friday and Saturday and a FRONT PAGE article in the Grand Forks Herald See article here:  Thrive North Dakota Article

* The Thrive team (part of our TCI team HQ’d at Bayside Church) did a great job preparing for the event and they served well. Since Bayside is our first “Hub Church” we are using them to model what we hope our other Hub Churches will do. Hope Church did a great job as a Hub Church in hosting this conference.

* We had over 30 workshops and our initial feedback was fanatastic; virtually all the workshops were hosted by local presenters.

Stay tuned…more to come. We should have photos, videos, and possibly DVD/audio files of sessions available in short order.

Bonus #1: I’m attaching the PowerPoint for what I presented on Saturday morning in the general session.
