Catalyst :: Backstage 2010

I get the chance to be a co-host of catalystbackstage.com this week in Atlanta. I’m joining up with John Acuff, Shauna Niequist and Carlos Whittaker to bring you live interviews with the Speakers and all kinds of behind the scenes stuff at Catalyst this week. This is a little real time conference resource for all of your that couldn’t make it. There’s also rumor that they’ll be streaming a couple of the main sessions. Tune in starting Wednesday starting at 12pm (EST) as we get started and follow along with us through the end of Friday.

Anybody actually going to be at Catalyst this week?

Freedom Tour :: Promise, ShowIt & Your City

I’m so proud of my wife, Promise Tangeman-Wurzell! She’s got creativity oozing out of her pores and I love to see how God is using her to inspire others. In just a couple of weeks we’ll be hitting the road with our great friends from ShowIt who have invited Promise to be one of the speakers on their National Tour. The tour is primarily geared for people in the Photography industry and will feature 3 influential industry leaders at each location.

Also, the AMAZING Molly Jenson will be along on the tour bringing her awesome music to each of the cities. If you don’t know Molly…get to know her. She’s got the voice of sweet honey on cornbread! You’ll know her beautiful female voice as she’s the featured vocalist on almost all of Jon Foreman‘s (switchfoot) solo EP’s. She’s a legend.

We’re so thankful for great friends in the photography industry and for people that believe in Promise so much. Promise is speaking in 4 of the cities on the tour and it is coming SOON! If you want to come out or know someone in one of the cities below, tell them to get a ticket soon! Space is limited in each of the cities, but, we’d love to see good friends along the way, so get your tickets. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE TICKETS!!

Center For Church Communications :: My New Role


Okay, I’ve got to share some pretty awesome news with you guys!  I was recently asked by Cynthia Ware from the Center for Church Communications to be a part of a small group of creative individuals across the country to help support and promote ministry comm professionals. I am excited about this opportunity to help those who are spreading the gospel through creative means. Seriously incase you didn’t know, the CFCC is behind many great projects (the most popular being the Church Marketing Sucks blog).

The group so far is made up of some down right amazing, creative, and passionate individuals.  I’m truly humbled and honored to be serving with all of these great people:

If you’re in church communications and I don’t know you, please leave a comment or email me. I would love to connect and see how I can help support and promote what you’re doing.

Catalyst Westcoast – Announcement – Part 2

Announcement – Part 2 – Catalyst (could look something like this, but, totally different)

I’m excited to announce that I have been invited to join the team at Catalyst Westcoast. I’ve been asked to host, what they are calling, the ‘Catalyst Green Room’.

My role for the conference will be to have a presence in the ‘Green Room’ in the effort to bring the Catalyst Westcoast experience to the world via the web. I’ll be interviewing and interacting with a good chunk of the ‘key note’ speakers/leaders, Hillsong United and many other leaders that will be in the room in those days. It sure poses some exciting possibilities. If you watched Anne Jackson last year at Catalyst in ATL, she hosted a deal called ‘Backstage’ and it will have remnants of that idea, however, the web engine being put together for what we are doing is going to be improved and AWESOME!

My question for you is simply this…if you could sit down with some of the guys that are speaking/leading at Catalyst (Andy Stanley, Francis Chan, Guy Kawasaki, Brian Houston, Hillsong United, etc…) what would be the one or two things you would ask those leaders? The fun part is that I may ask your questions to these leaders. I want to get a running list of questions for these leaders that you want to know. Leave a comment with what you would ask these people!

Pretty exciting opportunity and I’m humbled to link arms with this amazing organization, called Catalyst, as they lead one of the most prolific conferences of the year! Many thanks to LV Hanson, Aaron Foster and Ben Arment over at Catalyst for seeing something in a scruffy guy like me. It will be a great few days! More to come as we get closer to the event!

I’ve got two exciting things to announce about Catalyst West Conference that is coming to Newport Beach, CA on Aprill 22-24th, 2009. I’m not gonna share both of them in this post, however, you do get one of the pieces of news. The first bit is kind of fun and if you’re still undecided about going maybe it will motivate you to commit. The line up for this conference is absolutely ridiculous. You will be learning and drinking in from some of the most prolific Kingdom-minded leaders in the world during these days in April. Check out their website. Line up includes:

Worship by Hillsong United, Steve Fee, Aaron Keyes and Joel Auge

ANNOUNCEMENT – PART I

I’ve been given the ability to help you and your team get SPECIAL PRICING on the conference if you reference my name and blog. You have to contact Aaron Foster who is leading the charge on the sales end at Catalyst to get the deal. All you need to do is mention that ‘Brian Wurzell said you’d hook us up’ and he will give you a price that I cannot print. 🙂 You can contact him at aaron.foster@catalystspace.com or on his direct line 678-225-3501. TELL YOUR FRIENDS TOO!

Bring your team, sleep on a family members floor, if you have too, take a day or two off work, but, don’t miss this epic leadership summit. Aaron will take care of you if you call him soon, but, they’re almost sold out so I would try and call him this week to make sure you don’t get left out.
