Join Us At The First Ever Open Atlanta Next Month!

April 9th

@ Candler School of Theology

Hear George Lockhart from The Youth Culture Report talk: “Creatively Communicating Christ”

What is Open Atlanta? Open Atlanta is part of a movement of youth ministry events created to celebrate practical, front-line, local-to-local youth worker idea sharing and training.

Why is it so crazy cheap? “If it’s only $25 per person it can’t be any good, can it?” For the past five years Open events have happened all over North America (and a couple in France) for just $25 per person. How? No one gets paid. The speakers don’t get paid. We borrow space. We ask a small group of ministry partners to help us cover any other expenses. And we at The Youth Cartel donate our time. Even when these events are profitable we give the money away to a local youth-oriented charity. We believe everyone wins when it’s not about money. That’s why Open is so cheap. (And it’s always free if you’re in college or seminary.)

Interesting. Where can I learn more? 

Here’s the Open Atlanta homepage. Here’s the schedule. And here is where you register. And here’s a Facebook event if you’re into that kind of thing.

See you in Atlanta in a few weeks!
