I landed in San Diego yesterday with fellow planter Jacob Vanhorn. Last night we stayed with a sweet family that is on staff at Kaleo church, the Petersons.

The Total Church conference with Tim Chester starts in a couple of hours. For those that dont know, Total Church is a book that was written by Tim Chester and Steve Timmis of the Crowded House in the UK. The book is a rethinking of church around gospel-centered missional community. It’s so balanced that it probably won’t become immensely popular, which is unfortunate.

Other speakers include: Drew Goodmanson, David Fairchild, Mike Gunn, Caesar Kalinowski, and Mark Moore. All these guys really get missional ecclesiology really well. I look forward to learning from them and working on some longer range plans for Austin City Life while I am here.
