At the end of this month (May 28-31) I’ll be heading down to Orlando, FL to lead the worship in song at Next 2011, with the Na Band and Generation Letter. Shane and Shane will also be leading us in corporate worship for one session, and presenting a concert that same night.
Next is geared towards young adults but open to anyone. This year’s focus is understanding how Christ transforms the way we look at the world. The speaker line up includes D.A. Carson, R.C. Sproul, Jeff Purswell, Kevin DeYoung, Scott Oliphint, and Vern Poythress. They’ll be helping us grapple with how the Christian faith relates to reason, science, law, art, postmodernism, and more.
This is from the Next website:
Look around-you live in a post-Christian culture. What the Bible says is treated with disbelief or scorn; faith is considered a relic or worthless.
Christ calls us to love God with our minds, interpreting all of nature and culture in the light of God’s self-revelation. As Christians we can survey the whole cosmos with new eyes and see it as an open field for joyful, worshipful exploration.
A Christ-centered worldview is broad and deep and mature enough to encompass every facet of life-science and society, mathematics and music, love and logic. In Christ, Christians should be the deepest thinkers, the most passionate explorers, the most innovative entrepreneurs.

I’ve been involved with the Next conference (previously known as New Attitude) since 1999. It’s always been spiritually enriching, mentally engaging, and physically exhausting. I don’t expect 2011 to be any different.
