Making the Most of The Nines

How can I make the most of nine when I don’t know what you’re talking about?

Well, The Nines is a rather unconventional unconference that has kind of blossomed out of “nowhere” but that doesn’t mean that didn’t get some of the most well respected in church leadership involved! Starting at 9am Central Daylight Time on 09/09/09 they’ll roll out 9 minute videos from these dynamic leaders for roughly 9 hours with about…yeah you guessed it 9,000 in attendance across via laptops, desktops, computers, offices, living rooms, sanctuaries, you name it!

Here’s a highlight of the schedule tomorrow:

9AM — Troy Gramling, Mark Beeson, Anne Jackson, Dave Ferguson, Scott Hodge
10AM — Perry Noble, Stacy Spencer
11AM — Dino Rizzo, Nancy Beach, Steven Furtick, Reggie McNeal
12PM — Craig Groeschel, Leonard Sweet, Greg Surratt, Jon Tyson
1PM — Margaret Feinberg, Larry Osborne, Matt Carter, Pete Wilson
2PM — Neil Cole, Reggie Joiner, JD Greear
3PM — Mark Batterson, Dan Kimball, Mark DeYmaz
4PM — Jud Wilhite, Brian McLaren, Bob Roberts, Rick McKinley, John Ortberg
5PM — Alan Hirsch, John Bishop, Toby Slough, Ed Stetzer
6PM — Mark Driscoll, Darrin Patrick, Brad Powell
7PM — Darrin Whitehead, Brian Bloye
8PM — Eric Bryant, Nancy Ortberg, Rick Warren

Can I get an Amen!?! I mean WOWZERS that list is insane! When you miss something (b/c it’s an all day marathon you will miss something) check out the tops of the hours.

This is probably the best post I’ve seen on how to tackle tomorrow. [ht: Will Mancini!] Click through but here’s the bullet-points for you:

  1. Carve out as much time as possible to watch live. – opposed to a centralized room the size of an ocean with 9k in attendance, it’ll feel like these leaders are sitting across the table talking to YOU! Join the experience with the online community that you won’t be able to get watching downloads later.
  2. Keep streaming tweets while watching live. – utilizing the communication guerilla Twitter all the tweets containing #thenines will be in conversation together.
  3. Zero in by asking the Holy Spirit for help. – PRAY
  4. Think “syntopically.” – other than some high profilers at each hour it’ll truly be interesting how the topics come out!
  5. Focus reflection. – SUPER recommendation by Will Mancini!!! Word for word: All of this great content must translate, at some point, to meaningful take-aways based on the clarity of your own calling. My personal strategy will be to take hand written notes, that I will group eventually into no more than three categories. In my experience, if a leaders tries to carry more than three ideas, thoughts, or actions away in their wheelbarrow, he or she risks tipping over and having nothing.
  6. Act immediately. – Implementation and execution is the key otherwise we all sat around and wasted a day’s worth of work.

So who’s in? If not? You’ll hate my Twitter and Facebook by 9pm tomorrow! Hahaha!
