Simulcast 2009!

This weekend is the Living Proof Live Simulcast from Green Bay, Wisconsin. What in the world is a simulcast, you ask? Here’s how it works. Beth, Travis and the praise team will be at the live conference location in Green Bay while hundreds of host churches across the country will be linked to it through satellite technology. The schedule will be the same as a regular LPL event with one session on Friday night and two sessions on Saturday morning.

My family’s home church happens to be a host site. So on Friday night I will go there along with my co-workers and we will take part in the event. We will get to experience worship and Bible study as though we are right there in Green Bay, only our trip home will be much shorter and we’ll get to sleep in our own beds!

I’ve been to one other simulcast event and while I was a little skeptical about it at first, I was pleasantly surprised that I lost the sense that my mom wasn’t actually on the stage right in front of me. I felt completely engaged in everything that was going on and it was like we were in the same room with the host group.

If this isn’t the year for you to get to travel to a Living Proof Live event and stay in a hotel with a bunch of your girlfriends, this is a great option to look into. Or even if you have been to a conference this year, who couldn’t use another weekend in the Word? You can visit this page on LifeWay’s web site for more information and to search for a satellite location near you.

I’d love to invite anyone in the Houston area to be a part of the simulcast at my church, Houston’s First Baptist. You can click here to see the schedule, get directions, etc. Tickets are $10 and you can either buy them online or at the door. The event will take place in the sanctuary.

And finally, bless my mom’s heart, here is a little video she made for the event. I hope she doesn’t have to wear the cheese hat this weekend because it will seriously flatten out her bangs. I heard that a certain miesta was supposed to be cheesin’ it up with her on the video, but rumor has it he accidentally overslept and missed the filming.

P.S. Mom just said I could tell you that she’s teaching out of Psalm 37 and the theme will be “The Heart of Our Desires.”

    I am so "stinkin" excited about attending the simulcast here in Traverse City, MI that I can hardly stand myself. I am praying for Beth and the entire group. I know the message will be outstanding as Mama Siesta always seeks the Lord first and lets Him use her to His hearts content!!!
    The worship will be over the top as Travis is also so in tune to our Lord……

    I attended a live event in Detroit two yrs ago and was blessed out of my socks. You can be sure I will be making EVERY effort to attend the one in May 2010 in GR.

    That vimeo was over the top!!!

    Hey Beth,
    My church is hosting the simulcast, and I am in charge. I am feeling a bit anxious because we are having dinner Friday night for all attendees and breakfast on Saturday morning. We are also having the Lifeway store in a box at our event. So, there is lots to coordinate. In addition, our church has designed t-shirts for those coming. We have pre-sold nearly 300 tickets and I am so excited!!!!! I have been to several of your LPL events and in fact, last year was in Louisville for the simulcast. That is when I felt the Lord leading me to have our Women's Ministry team host the event at our church this year. Can't wait!! May God show up in mighty and powerful ways this weekend all over our nation in His churches.
    Blessings,
    Amy – Corinth Baptist Church-London, KY

    Anon 1:02, I just wanted to let you know that each host church determines its own ticket price. I'm sorry you had to pay more for yours, but I hope you have a great experience.

    Anne says:

    I'm happy that everyone is so excited, but could someone explain to me why it would cost $30 per person? I checked 6 or 7 churches and the cost was $25-30, but for one which wasn't charging but taking a freewill offering.

    I would like to invite several friends but they are all unemployed, living on fixed income or minimum wage or some other financial hardship. I can help maybe one person.

    I don't mean to be critical, maybe there is a very good explanation!

    Anne says:

    Oh, thanks Amanda. I saw your response after I posted my question. But maybe you could enlighten us about the costs to the churches and LPM itself.

    I can't wait..I'll be in Green Bay!! We will have a great time in the Lord! Lord Jesus, I ask that you would speak through Beth by your Holy Spirit and inspire each of us to draw closer to you so that others might be brought into the kingdom.

    Love,

    Why are simulcast tickets in Houston only $10 but in Texarkana we have to pay $20? I'm just sayin' …

    I was able to attend a simulcast in MN last year while on vacation. It was wonderful! You'll love Wisconsin. Those mid-western women can't be beat! (Said by a true daughter of the deep South) Now, did you get anyone in New Hampshire to sign up this year?! I sure hope so! Blessings on the event. I'm jealous to miss.

    Five of us from Rochester, MN will be at the live Green Bay event — we are so looking forward to spending the time together in Christ!

    I WAS DRIVING PAST A CHURCH SIGN IN NASHVILLE THAT STATED YOUR NAME AND I THOUGHT BACK TO LAST SUMMER(09). I WAS SO ANGRY INSIDE AND DID NOT UNDERSTAND WHY. THEN IT HAPPENED. A GROUP OF MY BEST GIRLFRIENDS GOT TOGETHER AND SAID THEY WANTED TO START A BIBLE STUDY. ONE OF THEM HAD COMPLETED BREAKING FREE. SHE SAID THAT YOUR BIBLE STUDIES WERE AWESOME AND WAS JUST WHAT I NEEDED. WE ALL GOT TOGETHER AND COMPLETED THE PATRIARCHS. IT WAS JUST WHAT I NEEDED I HAD NOT REALIZED HOW FAR AWAY FROM GOD I HAD STRAYED. EVER SINCE THEN I HAVE BEEN ON A JOURNEY BACK. THANK YOU

    Why is there such a price difference? I see at your church it is$10 but at 2 churches close to me in Indiana it is $25-$30. $10 seems reasonable 25 is our of budget.
    Hope all goes well with it.

    I have been praying for this event for the past week or more. I am asking God to have a special word for ME….and may each one within hearing of your words Beth…find exactly what they are needing to find, hear exactly what they are needing to hear from our blessed Father. May God annoint you and your team…and Travis would you please sing…"Jesus Saves" or "In Christ Alone" or "I Am Persuaded" or….the list is endless!!!
    WOW…I am excited…God is going to be powerful this weekend I am sure.

    Amanda says:

    LifeWay charges a fee to the churches who host. I do not know the ins and outs of it, but I think part of it has to do with equipment costs. The churches that have women's ministry budgets (as ours does) may be able to eat the cost and have to charge very little or nothing at all to the attendees. Some churches may only need to cover their costs while others may be using it as a fundraiser – perhaps to raise money for their women's ministries (as my old church did). It just depends on the particular church. If the cost is prohibitive, I would encourage you to contact the host church near you and and explain your situation. They may be able to help you out. If anyone has further questions, please email me at blog@lproof.org. Thanks, sisters!

    Hi Amanda, so glad your trip was a wonderful break- thanks for sharing your mother's topic as it inspired me to try and find out what churches are offering the event in th Dallas and north east Texas area- I have invited my mother to attend when I travel there this weekend- I had a bit of a hard time narrowing down the locations due to the Lifeway web site balloon map- I called them and they tried to help narrow the locations in that area-they did not seem to have an alphabetic listing of cities and towns by state, just church names and the balloons which were not exact- they may want to initiate an alphabetic listing by towns in each state to correspond to the visual-those balloons are somewhat crowded and the listing consists of church names without location unless you hit each one individually to find it's location-Forgive me, if I have given my opinion more than may be wanted- Can't wait to be blessed by your mother's teaching- You Bless Us beyond measure dear ones

    Please, please, please do something online (besides Wednesdays with Beth ๐Ÿ™‚ ) for those of us too far away to afford and/or get to a conference or simulcast.

    Have a great time!

    I cannot wait! I'll be attending at 1st Baptist in Kingsport, TN. I have been so blessed by the Esther bible study I've been doing, this was God's perfect timing for me. Thank you for all the work that goes into the LPL events and this blog! They are such a blessing!

    Jon and Lacey says:

    I'm coming Green Bay to see you this weekend! I'm so excited I can barely stand it!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Can't WAIT to see what the Lord is going to do! We took a step of financial faith back in the spring to buy the ticket to this conference, because I felt like the Lord was pressing on my heart that i needed to go. As the summer progressed, we went through a horrible (yet purifying) trial of faith, and then two weeks ago my husband lost his job. The Lord was so good to provide a way for me to reserve a ticket before the "storm" hit us! Can't wait to worship the Lord with you and learn and grow this weekend. Thanks for your faithful ministry!

    Miss Beth, I hate to tell you but I actually thought while I was watching the video, "Hey, her lipstick matches her hat. I wonder if that was on purpose."

    Word of God speak – let it FALL DOWN LIKE RAIN! Even though we live just north of Houston, three girlfriends and I have made reservations at a Galleria hotel and are making a "girls" weekend centered around God time through this simulcast. We are BESIDE ourselves with anticipation to learn what God will teach us and the INCREDIBLE worship we will be able to lavish on Him. PRAISE!!! Beth, you are covered in prayer as you prepare to release what God has prepared in advance for you to accomplish.

    Amanda,

    I've been thinking about all the post-event slide shows and thought it would be cool if all of the simulcast sites submitted 1 or 2 pictures from their site and a slide show was made that included at least one picture from every site. Wouldn't it be cool if we got to take a peek at eachother worshipping and studying the Word from over 100 locations across the country? I don't know if that's feasible, but it sounds kind of cool to me. I just love those slide shows. They always make me teary. BTW, I cannot wait for the simulcast! I am so excited.

    Amanda says:

    Anon 6:37, look under the first Texas map it gives you and click on "View Texas host sites…in a larger map." It will bring up a new map. Then click on the "zoom in" + sign until the balloons become more spread out. You may need to click and drag on the map to get DFW where you want it. That should do it!

I promised to take my sister when I found out about the Green Bay date, but I've been unemployed. Praise God I got a job this week!!! I'll try to find a church that's doing the simulcast of it.

    Hi Beth and Amanda,
    I just wanted to leave another comment because I started meditating and picking apart Psalm 37 in an effort to have my heart ready to hear from Him on Friday. In verse 5, I came across a word that I learned from Beth in Believing God. Yep, I was shocked to find out Commit meant: galal, to roll away, or roll onto. As in Gilgal, their stuff being rolled away. My stuff being rolled onto the Person of Jesus Christ who is more than able….I'm so excited about the words, I am somewhat of a dork. I can hardly wait for Friday….

    For those interested, last year I headed up the simulcast committee at our church and we based our $30 price on the fact that we provided breakfast , snacks and drinks for our gals who attended. Everyone I spoke with loved being catered to a bit and thought it was completely worth the price. I know many churches do similar things.
    Blessings!

    I have been looking forward to this for months!!!! I NEED THIS!!!!!! I'm praying for Beth, Travis, and the rest of the team. My mom, myself and my soon-to-be sister-in-law will be attending in Denton, TX. If anyone in the area is still thinking about coming, First Baptist Denton is hosting and isn't charging for admission – praise God!

    I'm counting down the hours!!!
