San Jose Boot Camp - Photos and Video

Last week with 850 in attendance, we hosted the Acts 29 San Jose Boot Camp in partnership with The Gospel Coalition as well as The NorCal Network. What an exciting time – with the largest boot camp we've hosted in 2 years, we were all surprised, laughing and thankful at what God brought about in The Bay Area, where church planting is greatly needed.

Our friends at The Resurgence took some good photos from the event, which we are reposting here. Also, the video below was created by The NorCal team and shown at the boot camp – we wanted to share it with you as well. Justin Buzzard, Michael Burchfield, Steve Fuller and several other church planters in the video are also Acts 29 members.

The event was a huge blessing, success and encouragement and we are excited to see what happens in the weeks, months and years to come for San Jose and The Bay Area in planting gospel-centered, Christ-honoring churches.

From top: D.A. Carson and Acts 29 Co-Founder Mark Driscoll answer questions from attendees, with Acts 29 President, Scott Thomas as moderator. Mark Driscoll (x2) talks about the importance of the church planter's marriage – which included the humorous and moving story of Martin and Katie Luther. The lobby at our church host venue was filled with exhibitors' booths and attendees milling around on breaks – we were blessed to be able to give away hundreds of books. Last two photos: Mark Driscoll and D.A. Carson in their teaching sessions.

While registration is not available yet, we'd like to highlight that there are two more boot camps coming in 2011 that you may wnat to plan for now: Chicago on September 15-16, and Seattle on November 3-4. Hope to see you there!
