Get That Conference “High”

I don’t think I’m the only one out there that loves a great conference.  Whether it’s a business conference, ministry conference, or personal interest conference, they are inspiring.  From the moment you book your flight, hotel room, and tickets, to the time you actually attend, there’s quite the feeling of excitement and expectation.

I’ve attended a number of conferences, as well as been involved in ministering at a number of them.  They are incredible!  I love just attending.  And I love preparing to speak.  There’s just something about that atmosphere of expectation that happens when you attend the conference.  I often leave with that emotional “high” or burst from that event.  But why?  What is it?

For me, most of the time it’s being around kindred spirits that are seeking to encounter the Father in the way I crave to encounter Him.  But it’s also about hearing messages delivered to you for the entire weekend.  It’s new, it’s exciting, and it’s empowering to take part in that.  So my question is this: What if we could get that conference “high” without ever attending the conference?  And the truth is, we can!

Here are five steps to getting that conference “high” without ever attending the conference:

1. Create a list of your favorite speakers/pastors/preachers.

2. Create a list of your favorite worship leaders/bands/artists.

3. Find out what topic YOU want to have at your conference.

4. Arrange your own personal conference.  Then once you have done the first three steps, find sermons on Youtube, Itunes, or websites and select sermons that have to do with YOUR topic.  Gather together the worship artists’ songs and/or playlists and create your own worship set.  That means that if you don’t like the worship, it’s your fault!  There are no excuses in this conference.  It’s your own style.

5. Now throw yourself the conference.  If you have the day off, spend the entire day going back and forth from worship music to sermon and/or speaking messages.  Saturate your ears, heart and mind with these messages.

Benefits

There are an incredible amount of benefits to having your own personal conference.

  • You get to select what YOU need and not have to pray that the topic will speak to you.
  • It’s FREE!
  • You don’t have to make arrangements to be away from the home.
  • You can listen to it while getting things done (e.g. dishes, laundry, changing diapers, working out, driving to work).
  • You can select the dates that work perfectly for you.

Therefore, you don’t need to wait until the next conference is available for you to get that conference “high.”  Create your own personal conference right there in your living room or car.  Watch what will happen to your attitude, heart, mind, and soul.  You will walk out the doors of your house with a skip in your step and a bounce in your heart!

Opinion: Share with us some of the pastors/teachers/preachers/speakers that you enjoy listening to.
