If you are interested in mobile ministry, consider joining me in a couple weeks at the 2013 Mobile Ministry Forum Consultation (Orlando, FL). The Mobile Ministry Forum is a network of over 70 organizations working together to use mobile technology for the advance of the Good News of Jesus Christ.
On December 9th-11th, these pioneers in mobile internet ministry will be giving TED-style presentations, panel discussions, ministry field reports, workshop breakouts, and networking time. Keynotes include:

The mission of the Every Tribe Every Nation® (ETEN) alliance: Partnering to unleash the life-giving message of God’s Word to all people in their own language and in a format they can engage with so lives can be transformed. And for the first time in history, we have the means to make that goal a reality. Roads and ships, pens and paper have given way to computers, cell phones, tablets, and print on demand. The door is open for the Bible to cause true transformation everywhere.
