The Elephant Room looks like one of the more interesting conferences—if you can call it that—of the year. It’s actually a one-day simulcast event that will broadcast live from Chicago to sites across the country from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM (CST) on March 31, 2011. James MacDonald and Mark Driscoll are the moderators

Here are some details:


The Elephant Room will feature blunt conversations between seven influential pastors who share a common love for the Gospel but take differing approaches to ministry. No keynotes. No canned messages. These are “the conversations you never thought you’d hear.”


The purpose of The Elephant Room is to unify the church on essential truths and overcome the polarizing of others that comes from using differing methods. As Proverbs 27:17 instructs us that iron sharpens iron, so we want to sharpen each other for effective ministry. You’ll be stretched and challenged in your convictions and gain practical insights from a variety of pastoral perspectives.
