Several months ago, I started writing about spiritual fitness, especially the lessons churches can learn from CrossFit gyms about changing lives. Those posts opened doors to conversations with several others in the CrossFit community who share my passion for connecting the dots between physical and spiritual fitness. The result is that I’ve teamed up with a small group of folks to do conferences around the country for CrossFitters interested in pursuing spiritual fitness with the same tenacity and intensity with which they pursue physical fitness.
Our first LIFT Conference is in Dallas this Saturday, February 11th, at CrossFit Strong. I’ll be making several presentations throughout the day. 2010 CrossFit Games Champion Graham Holmberg will be our special guest speaker in the evening. Interspersed throughout the presentations will be small group breakouts and workouts. I’m looking forward to bringing together two of my passions: spiritual formation in the way of Jesus and physical training in the way of CrossFit. I can’t wait to see what happens.
Church leaders: This would be a great opportunity to come get an inside look at the CrossFit culture. Even if you have no experience with CrossFit or choose to skip the workouts, I believe this would be a valuable experience for you.
If you’d like to join us, it’s not too late to sign-up. Registration is $75. It will be $115 at the door. Registration includes:
