Our guest blogger today is Dino Rizzo. Dino has been a huge encouragement to me and one of the most authentic and humble guys I know.  He is one of those guys that the more I’m around him the better I become. He also is one of the few guys I know that likes the SEC and the ACC! (you gotta remember your roots) Dino and his wife DeLynn are on the front lines of reaching out to hurting people. They began Healing Place Church in 1993 with the single focus to be a healing place in a hurting world. Healing Place started with just 12 people and has grown to average 7000 every weekend with 18 services in 11 locations. Pastor Dino and DeLynn have such a heart and passion for hurting people across the world. Check out what he has to say about the upcoming ARC All Access 2009 Conference…

"I believe this year’s All Access Conference for the Association of Related Churches is going to be an incredible gathering. We are honored to be at C3 Church this year in Clayton, NC, hosted by Matt Fry and the incredible team there – and to get to hear from Ed Young, Jr. from Fellowship Church in Grapevine, TX.

I love the All Access conferences because we get to hang out with church planters from all over the world, sharing ideas, encouraging each other, celebrating victories and building up strength for the challenges ahead. There’s no gathering that is quite like it.

If you’re a church planter and you’re not already registered, go check it out at allaccessconference.com – we’d love to have you there."
